Boston is the largest city in New England and one of the biggest, and oldest, in the USA.
Boston is one of the most difficult cities in North America to drive in. The many one-way streets, the haphazard street layout, horrible winter weather, narrow lanes dating to the Colonial era, and aggressive -- near suicidal -- driving style of the natives combine to make the roads a dangerous place for the visiting driver. In addition, a gargantuan construction project to build an underground freeway bypass, known locally as the Big Dig (http://www.bigdig.org/), has kept traffic snarled in the city center since 1991.
Fortunately, considering the hostile driving conditions, there is an excellent mass-transit system in place, known as the T (http://www.mbta.com/).
