Greater Boston - A Great Place to Live

The Greater Boston region is one of the most dynamic metropolitan areas in the United States, offering a strong academic environment, a thriving arts scene, rich cultural diversity, and an internationally-renowned medical infrastructure. Combined with the region's rich historical heritage, soft ocean breezes, and breathtaking autumn foliage, it is no wonder that the Boston region is one of the nation's most desirable areas to live.

Boston is often described as the gateway to New England. This is due to its central location and major highway access to points both North and South. At all times, you are less than 90 minutes away from thousands of vacation destinations including whale watching on Stellwagen Bank, black-diamond skiing in Vermont and New Hampshire, touring the mansions in Newport, RI, whitewater rafting in Maine, or visiting the pristine beaches of Cape Cod.

As Cambridge Health Alliance is based in Cambridge, Somerville, and Boston's metro-north region, residents can choose to live in dozens of local communities throughout the area. Some residents live in nearby urban communities, benefiting from the close proximity to work and the Boston city scene. Others choose more rural areas slightly farther away, yet still with easy highway and commuter rail access.
