Boston is the largest city in New England and has a population of about 635,000. Not only is Boston the capital city of Massachusetts, it's also one of the oldest cities in the country. Steeped in a rich history, and home to many colleges and universities, Boston certainly has its own distinctive flare–flare that doesn’t come cheap as Boston is one of the most expensive cities in the United States.
Boston is an extremely walkable city and that’s a good thing because driving can be difficult. Many of its narrow streets are one-way, parking can be tough, and there is an abundance of traffic. Luckily, Boston’s public transportation also makes it easy to leave the car at home. The city's public transportation system is the oldest in the country and makes use of trains, subways, trolleys, and streetcars.
