i do. it depends on the area i guess. if you're on the south shore (area south of boston) its a lot of old rich conservative white people. or the western half of the state has a lot of farmers and shit as far as im aware.
i've never really been to the south other than driving from atlanta to orlando so i don't really know what the differences are, but if you had specific questions i could prob answer
yeah thats probably the general area you'd want to be in. the north end for example has a lot of really good restaurants. i don't know anything about the night life there but i'd assume its solid because the city in general seems to be having more young people living there in recentish years. driving is kind of shitty as you might expect but not quite as terrible as nyc for example, so you'll probably need to do a lot of walking and taking public transportation. there are areas with less of a "big city" vibe that i feel is nice if you want better interactions with people. maybe look into cambridge or somerville if you like the idea of smallerish cities while still being right outside of the city
