    pros:

    lots to do, very fun no matter what your interest

    a lot of other young college kids

    a progressive, liberal atmosphere

    a decent mass transit system

    fairly safe for a large city (though it does have a few very rough areas : Roxbury, Dorchester and Mattapan)

    best health care in the nation

    lots of good colleges to choose from

    a rather attractive city (except in winter)

    cons: bad weather, especially in winter

    really bad traffic, and not enough parking, don't drive if possible fortunately there is a decent mass transit system (the T) which I mentioned in the pros section
