Boston is one of the oldest cities in the US, and is currently the largest city in the New England area. The many universities located here as well as being a world leader for entrepreneurship makes this city a great place for one of our car shipping affiliates.
Boston, like much of the surrounding areas, has a humid climate that’s influenced by the ocean. The summers are rainy, humid, and anywhere from warm to hot, with mild spring and fall weather. The winters have cold temperatures and can range between snow and cold rains. Many of the customers we have from this area prefer to winter down south (aka snowbirds), or have seasonal homes in the south for when the weather isn’t favorable in Boston.
Boston proper is 48 square miles and is also part of the Greater Boston metro, which is made up of surrounding cities like Worcester. In fact, 80% of Massachusetts’ population is found in the metro. The famous Boston Harbor is east of the city, and The Charles River separates it from Watertown and Cambridge to the west. Since Boston has an abundance of diverse subsections, it’s sometimes called the City of Neighborhoods.
There are four airports that serve the Boston area, with Boston Logan International Airport being the main choice. It’s located in East Boston and is the largest airport in the New England region. The others are used for general aviation, to the west is Hanscom Field, Norwood Memorial Airport to the south, and Beverly Municipal Airport to the north. Interstate 90, which runs along the Massachusetts Turnpike, ends in Boston on the east coast. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority or MBTA is not only the fourth busiest in the country, it’s also the oldest underground rapid transit system in all the Americas. Nearly one-third of the population uses public transit to commute, making it the fifth highest in the country.
