17 Reasons Why I Miss Boston

bostonskylineFrom time to time, I get very nostalgic about my home city.  Chalk it up to being homesick.  Now I love Orlando don’t get me wrong.  I just know that O-town lacks so many things.  To me, Boston is one of the greatest cities in this country.  Whenever I ask people about their favorite cities the list goes something like this… New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Washington DC.  Many times people fail to mention Boston.  Usually at this point, I slap some sense into that person and throw in my two cents about my beloved city.  Those that know and have experienced Boston will tell you (if they know what is good for them) that it belongs in the same breath as some of the well known cities in this country.  Boston has a little bit of everything for everybody.   

Anyways the purpose behind today’s post is not to sell my city of Boston (or maybe it is).  I am here to list the things I miss about being in Beantown…

  1. Red Sox nation
  2. Being engulfed in history
  3. Quincy Market
  4. New England Clam Chowder
  5. Snowball fights
  6. Sledding
  7. Being surrounded by Boston accents
  8. New England Patriots
  9. North End
  10. Logan Airport
  11. Dunkin Donuts
  12. Newbury Street
  13. Celtics
  14. CVS
  15. Wiffle Ball
  16. Riding the T
  17. MY FRIENDS!!!!

I could on and on.  But I will not.  I want to take this time to ask my readers out there to list why you like or miss your city so much.  I am very curious to see what other cities have to say about themselves.

Well thanks for reading! Please share any of your comments or thoughts with me!

  1. I went to the North End when we were there for work in March. Best food I think I’ve ever had in my life in Little Italy. The meat just fell off the bone. The cannolis had fresh cream that wasn’t filled until you placed the order and then dipped in chocolate. I could go there again just for the food!
