Rant for anyone considering living in Boston.
I have no idea what people find attractive about this city. Boston is equivalent to Minneapolis/Pittsburgh/Indianapolis yet it is 3x+ the price.
Nightlife: Few good places but nothing crazy that any other city doesn't have. There's like 2/3 clubs that people actually go to and all are pretty overrated. Everything closes at 1:30/2:00 and zero happy hours.
Work lunch spots: Get ready for either shawarma and falafel or sweet green every day. Very few food trucks. Bon Mi is okay I guess.
Dinner: Not a ton of good options. Same crappy Italian food throughout north end. Top places like SRV/Craigie/Giulia all meh. Whole city raves about Regina's which is 7/10 at best. Will say the seafood here is pretty fire though.
Girls: 3 Categories. Stuck up NE white chicks with no ass, extreme liberal feminist with hairy armpits, or fat.
People: 99% of conversation will be about the Red Sahks or fahkin Tahm Brady leaving the Pats.
The Cape/Vineyard: Beaches are rocky and if you go in the water 90% chance you may have to punch a great white in the nose. 0/10 compared to other east coast beaches, even places like Ocean city MD and Jersey Shore destroy NE beaches.
Mountains/Outdoors: Nice in the fall. Acadia is dope. Skiing is awful either going down sheets of ice or slopes packed with children. Either way you're going to tear your ACL.
Weather: It's cold and dark for 9 months. June - August are pretty nice.
Rent: Minimum $3k for a nice 1 bed/office place in a desirable part of the city.
Can someone explain what I'm missing here? It's not an awful city but for it to be priced in the same ball park as NYC/SF/LA is just insane.
