Weather all year round
The Boston weather is quite harsh in winter, and dry and very cold weather prevails. Il n'It is not uncommon for snow to deposit a white coat on the streets of Boston and snowstorms are frequent. At this time of year, it's impossible to do without a hat, gloves and a big coat. In summer, it is hot in Massachusetts, even humid and heavy - July and August are sometimes painful to bear. Le climat is ideal in spring and September, when Boston's mercury hovers around 20°C.
The cost of living in Boston and the United States seems high to Europeans. The cheap sectors are mainly catering and consumer goods (e. g. clothing or electronics). On the other hand, hotels are very expensive in Boston, and it becomes difficult, if not impossible, to find a room below US$100.
To travel to Boston, you need a biometric passport. This passport allows you to benefit from the visa waiver program for stays of less than 90 days.
Since January 2009, to benefit from this visa waiver, it is necessary to make an ESTA online declaration for tourist stays in the United States, under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), on the website https: //esta.cbp.dhs.gov and to pay the administrative fees, which have been charged since September 2010, up to 14 US$.
For any stay of more than 90 days, the visitor must be in possession of a visa. Several types of visas exist (student, work, etc.), but they are all quite difficult to obtain.
No vaccine is required to travel to Boston or to enter the United States from anywhere else. There are no particular health problems to report in Boston and the hospital system is working very well. Tap water is also drinkable in Boston, and is even known to be very good!
