Boston may have been smaller then Philli but it was still a major city, and part of the 4 major city's of colonial america, I never proclaimed it was the largest.
Personally, I found South Carolina FAR more 'British' than Boston. There was British remnants everywhere, from houses to politics. Here in Boston, I encounter lots of anti British sentiment, as well as (disgusting) IRA sympathy (but that's another discussion).

Though they are small city/towns....bit pricey. Very nice though. The minuteman trail is lovely for a walk/cycle towards Boston.

Head into parts of JP and the IRA are alive and well, it seems

Well it's the only place where I've openly seen Irish mob running protection rackets and have seen a street of fire bombed businesses for not paying up
