Skyscraper Views



 For many people, one of the main attractions to living in a city is to be able to look out over that same city. Many cities are full of skyscrapers that stretch into the clouds, providing beautiful views of other tall buildings and occasionally even mountains or other natural features.

Some people prefer skyscrapers for this reason because they like to know what's going on in the city around them. They like to be able to see construction work happening in another part of town, or watch as car traffic starts slowing down due to an accident or other event, or even just take pleasure in knowing that there are other people all around them.


Urban Professional Lifestyle

Based on a study in association with the Boston Globe Magazine, the "Boston Urban Professional" is a subset of the millennial population that has been described as unique and growing.  This group, which makes up 25% of all millennials living in the city, is considered to have a higher degree of education than other young professionals.   

Beach Vibes

The beach is one of the most relaxing places on Earth. It's an escape from reality with endless amounts of natural beauty and opportunities to relax. This summer, Bostonians are rushing to their local beaches for a taste of that serenity. With activities like surfing, kite flying, picnics, bonfires, and resting; it seems almost impossible to ever get bored of this pastime.

            To help you on your journey, here are some helpful shortcuts to the most popular Boston beaches. Before you begin your search, however, be aware that parking can be quite expensive in the area surrounding each beach.     

1.) Quincy Shore Drive

This location is perfect for those who are looking for a beach to go to with their friends. The street that runs along the shore is so large, there are rarely any difficulties finding parking spots. Quincy shore drive is also great because there are so many beaches to choose from, including different sizes and depths of sandy areas. It's also a prime location for those who want to have a bonfire with their friends, as it's legal to do so on the shore. A plus is that Quincy Shore Drive beaches are only a short walk away from the city of Quincy, where there are great cafes, restaurants, and bars to grab food or drink at after your day at the beach.

2.) Revere Beach

Revere Beach is located 15 minutes by car from Boston Common. This beach is perfect for those who are looking for a relaxing day at the beach, with little to no people around you.  The biggest plus about Revere Beach is that it offers over three miles of beach for you to enjoy. As well as an 18-foot tall observation tower that provides a beautiful view over the ocean. Parking can be expensive, but it's manageable

3.) Nantasket Beach

An absolutely gorgeous location with many different amenities, this is the ideal spot for all your beach needs. There are three different beaches to choose from, all with very different feels. Nantasket also boasts a boardwalk, an amusement park, and the option to take a ferry from Boston's Long Wharf.
