Not For Me

I wouldn't go near Boston unless you make or will make at least 150K a year. Better check the cost of living. Rent here is two or three times what it is in most US cities, four times most small towns. It's very crowded. Parking is always a hassle and traffic can be really bad. Better watch your car because there's a good chance somebody will steal it.

need info about surrounding areas Hi, we are thinking about relocating to the area south of Boston (within 60mi) and are looking for information on a town with low crime, lower cost of living/housing rates/rent. we are coming from rural PA, so our cost of living is VERY low right now... I just want to make sure any salary isn't totally eaten up by rent or something. Any help would be great! Thanks!
