#2: Boston

Boston is expensive (COL is 50% above the national average), but you get what you pay for.

The average salary of $44,000, unemployment of 5.8% is low and the atmosphere has a lot going for it.

Boston often is a big city with a small-town feel, and you have to love its deep, rich history. It’s also laid back, has great sports teams — the Celtics, Bruins, Patriots and Red Sox — and is packed with colleges should you want to continue your education.

The city has solid public transportation system and great outdoor opportunities — snowboarding, skiing, beaches.

Plus, once you’re gainfully employed, you can dig into some chowder, or perhaps some Dunkin Donuts (NASDAQ:DNKN) — there’s one on just about every corner.
