The American Revolution was fought during the late 18th century when the colonies tried to gain independence from Great Britain. The Boston Massacre occurred in 1770 and was the initial blow in the Revolutionary War. During this particular skirmish five colonists lost their lives and word of it spread quickly south to the rest of the original thirteen colonies, enraging all Americans. Five years later Paul Revere jumped on his horse to warn others of the coming British Redcoats. All that and more in Boston.
Aside from the Boston Tea Party, Beantown is also famous for producing the revolutionary Samuel Adams and Presidents John Adams and John Kennedy. Henry David Thoreau spent a couple of years living in the woods near Walden Pond and thought everyone else should do the same. Ralph Waldo Emerson rooted him on. Thoreau’s message of civil disobedience was later embraced by Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.. Harvard University is in Cambridge and happens to be America’s oldest university. Another great school is Boston College. In fact, during the school year it is estimated that one third of Boston’s population are college students, or about 200,000. Do you think those young people are using auto transport carriers in a big way? You bet.
The greater Boston area is home to two-thirds of Massachusetts residents and that means lots of vehicle shipments. They love their champion Red Sox. Actually just about every year it seems either the Patriots, Bruins, Celtics or Red Sox are winning championships. Amazing. And of course the Boston Marathon is the premier event. Which reminds us to say, “Boston Strong!”
Like so much of the eastern seaboard, I-95 runs north-south through eastern Massachusetts and Boston in particular. Cape Cod utilizes state highways to get in and out, but greater Boston is encircled by I-495 and it leads also to the Cape. Interstates I-90 and I-93 begin in Boston and head west and north respectively. In the western part of Massachusetts, I-91 runs north-south through Springfield. All of those freeways make shipping a vehicle a whole lot easier. The problem areas for auto shippers are Cape Cod because it’s a dead end and longer than you think, and also northwestern Massachusetts where the country roads are beautiful but tough on car haulers. Basically, if you’re shipping a car to the Boston area your chances are pretty good that it will happen fast. Unless your automobile is in the Boston financial district or Cambridge, where traffic seems to crawl, auto shipments tend to go smoothly.
