If you are not a lover of the cold, stay in Los Angeles. In May, the temperature is enjoyable, but the snowfalls and the cold can freeze anyone in winter. Point for Los Angeles.


If you are of university age or have children who will soon be, although in both cities there are good universities, Boston, apart from having three more universities (13 in total), has some of the most recognized worldwide:

1. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT): considered by numerous rankings as one of the best and most prestigious universities globally. According to the world ranking of QS Universities, it maintains the title of "The Best University Globally for ten consecutive years."

Natural Environment

If you are a lover of the beach and the mountains, I am sorry to tell you that Boston does not have a mountain system; In addition, although it does have beaches, they are not compared to Los Angeles... Point for Los Angeles.

The City Environment and Security

The Boston City looks cleaner, I noticed fewer homeless on the streets, and personally, I felt safe walking down the street and taking public transport. Point for Boston.


I was fascinated by Boston and its vibrant cultural environment. Above all, it preserves the architecture of its first English immigrants. Churches, buildings are part of its beautiful culture. The City of Los Angeles has a significant number of museums and, at the same time, a multicultural population that gives it a unique touch. Both cities, in different ways, have a lot to contribute at the cultural level.

Public Health:

According to a study conducted by CityHealth, the City of Boston earned the highest rating based on the city's Health policies and its ability to help citizens. Point for Boston.

My conclusion:

I admit that I loved Boston. It feels calmer, the people are freanly, and we can get around without stress on the streets. Its historical atmosphere gives it certain magic that makes you think in the past century without neglecting modernity. Now, choosing one of the two cities, I prefer the warmth of the Angels.

On my vacation, I was also in New York City, so I will be commenting on my experience there and comparing it with the City of Stars.
