I always thought Boston was a great place to live and work. You can be in the city center at night, but not so close that you feel like it’s too crowded or smoggy. Then you can go to Cambridge and see what there is to do for fun outside of the city — everything from biking trails, hiking on Mount Monadnock, sailing on Lake Winnepesaukee…it’s pretty hard to beat New Hampshire as a summer vacation destination. And during winter months? A lot of people leave town, since it gets too cold up north! I usually rent an apartment downtown with roommates while I’m looking for office space myself.
