Tired of seeing the same old run down crapshacks in the Metro boston area. Considering East Side of Providence. Classic looking houses, nice pre-war street layout with sidewalks. I can work remote really from anywhere and the wife is at home full time so we are keeping that option on the table.

I've seen that my $450K budget would go a long way to getting us a 2,000 sqft house with a garage and finished basement, with a small yard and walkable to things like Hope St.

Anyone have experience? I hate to leave Boston but the idea of moving out to Wilmington or further makes me gag. cul-de-sacs and poorly planned streets. No museums or culture or decent restaurants. No access to anything without a car.

I don't have experience living there but have visited Providence a few times (not specifically the East Side, so sorry if this isn't that helpful). It was easy to get to from Boston, both on public transportation and by car. I liked the zoos and hear the aquarium is a much better experience than Boston's. I liked downtown too, the one time I had occasion to walk around there - it stuck out in my mind that I saw several interesting restaurants that might be worth a trip back, especially given how easy it was to get there.

I recall looking at Providence a while back, but my memory was that the real estate taxes were very high. Could be wrong though...

Eastside of Providence
1) Beautiful and very nice pace of life
2) Great restaurants
3) Great people and culture
4) Great private schools/ Bad public schooling system
5) More affordable then Boston but taxes can be very high
6) Hope street is a beautiful area but do not venture down towards Camp St

Oak Hill is a very nice section with lower taxes just at the end of Blackstone Boulevard
