The cities are sort of similar (but not equal) in size, architecture and history. So which city do you prefer to live or to visit?

To me they both have sexy accents. Much better than our Scranton accents! UGH!

Both cities won championships this year.

Unfortunately I've never been to Philly, so that's all I'll add.

I think we've done this before. Whether deserved or not Boston will win. However, I have never seen more mutual respect between 2 cities on this forum than between Boston and Philly residents. Hopefully thatll happen again.

I have never actually been to Philly and it is waaay up on my list of places to go especially considering how close it is.

Nothing against Philadelphia, but I had to vote for Boston.

I really want to visit Philadelphia. I love the skyline.
