How is life style in Boston compare to Minnesota? I have been living in MN for already long time and very tired of glumnees. It's nothing to do here. Most (not all) architecture is ugly! It's no live here compare to Europe. People who lived in Europe will understand what I mean. Here is very boring, very few people outside. Parks are empty. City are spread all over. To get to store need to drive car! All what people do here - shopping, sitting in restorans or sitting home. Are many people walking outside in Boston? Or it is same like in MN? I'm so tired ot this lifestyle.

Boston does have some European influences, especially in the architecture and the vast array of restaurants and pubs. People do walk the streets, even at night here. I still kind of feel that Boston is also quite the American city though.

have you ever thought of Portland, Oregon? I am from Germany and despite the weather this is a great city. after living here for 3 years, i still haven't gotten my drivers license which says a lot. great food, outdoor life, beautiful nature and then, yes, the rain...

I don't know about 'most European city'. Boston is certainly in the style of many European cities, but I would argue so is New York, but in a newer sense. That is, I think Boston retains much more of the older colonial feel in its architecture and style than New York, which is much more 'chic' and metropolitan. But for walkability and culture, yes, Boston is quite 'European'.

The T pails in comparison to any major European subway system, though. I personally wish that the T would just run until 2-3 AM.
