Higher education isn’t the only sector of education Boston excels in. Massachusetts consistently ranks as one of the top states in public education. They say “doing well isn’t good enough” and students consistently shine, possibly due to the excellent quality of teachers in Massachusetts.

Central Location

Boston is located in a great spot in the Northeast. It’s possible to take a day trip to multiple different states. If you want to go explore a national park, head up the coast to Acadia National Park in Maine. If you want to go to another city, New York and Providence are just a car ride away. Interested in relaxing by the lake or in the mountains? New Hampshire and Vermont have both. The possibilities are endless in Boston.

Great Food Scene

Foodies will be in heaven with Boston food. Massachusetts is known for its seafood, being right on the coast after all. Try some New England clam chowder or lobster. Is seafood not your thing?
