Hi, just looking for some advice really. I really want to move to Boston from the UK but obviously do not know hardly anything about the place. From what i can gather it is expensive to live and the schools are not great. I have a 5 year old daughter so schooling is important as well as childcare and work for myself. Does anyone have any information that would be useful for me please?

Thank you

Yes, it is expensive compared to most US cities, but much cheaper than London, for example. The Boston public schools are generally not very good, but some of the inner suburbs, like Brookline and Newton, have very good public schools and easy subway access into the city.

Don't have kids so I can't help with childcare questions.
