A Guide to Internships Abroad in Boston

Equal parts dynamic and historic, Boston is a wicked awesome city backed by a loyal, headstrong community. Boston's history boasts revolution and transformation, and today it remains among the country’s most forward-thinking and barrier-breaking cities. It doesn’t take long to see why Bostonians refer to their city as “The Hub,” as in, “The Hub of the Universe.” Discover a world-class center for intellectual advancement, innovation, and entrepreneurship here. With sectors ranging from tourism to technology (many are multinational), you’ll have plenty of choices for internships in Boston.

Life in Boston

As a Boston intern, it’ll be like living in one enormous outdoor history museum. You can hardly walk a step over its cobblestone streets without running into some historic site, especially with The Freedom Trail winding its way around the city. If you need a break, you can always hop off the trail and hop into a good time. Bostonians can always find an excuse to party like it’s 1773, so going out with your new coworkers will be a real rippah.

Other weekend activities to fill your free time will unquestionably involve sports. Whether you’re a sports fan or not, you better at least pretend, put on a good game face, and invest in some sort of Red Sox apparel. Boston fans are next-level passionate about their sports with professional and college teams inspiring fierce loyalties, staunch rivalries, and a rip-roaring good time. 

When compared with the national average, the cost of living in Boston is a little high, but it’s no NYC. Accommodation will usually be included in your Boston internship program, so that’s one thing you don’t have to worry about. Housing in the city varies, but will most likely be some sort of apahtment situation.

GoAbroad Insider Tips

Boston is a generally safe city compared to other American cities. The biggest danger strikes when alcohol consumption and fighting ensue during a Red Sox and Yankees game. But don’t let that steer you away from getting to Sox game — or at least visiting Fenway Park.

A word of advice: When in Boston, eat as much seafood as possible. Local specialties include steemahs, fresh lobster and oysters, and thick, creamy chowdah. You can get good seafood around the city, but make a point to eat in the fish-centered Seaport District to accompany your sacred cod with spectacular harbor views.

Although Boston may be a bit pricy, there are still plenty of free activities to enjoy. During the warmer months, revel in the open-air entertainment. The Charles River Esplanade is Boston’s backyard, a primo venue for picnics, bike rides, and leisurely strolls. Even better, all summer long, the Hatch Memorial Shell hosts free events like outdoor concerts, movies, and park dances.

If Boston sounds this good from afar, just imagine how captivating it is when you get up close and personal. Get ready to jump in and be a part of the pool of students and young adults that bring an endless source of energy to the city. So drop your r’s and cross your t’s, because it’s time to intern in Boston!
