The global Time Out Index is back!

In last year’s survey, 80 percent of people proclaimed that Boston was expensive, while another 80 percent sang our city’s praises as a great place for “taking a walk in a green space.” Now, we once again want to know how folks find The Hub—so why don’t you tell us? 

We’ve just launched the Time Out Index 2022, our fifth annual poll of city-dwellers around the world, and we want to find out all about life in Boston post-pandemic. What’s the restaurant scene like? The bar circuit? How easy is it to date? To make friends? What do you think of the art and the nightlife here? Plus where, dare we say it, is the coolest part of town?

How have things changed in Boston now that we can all detect the sweet smell of normality? For those of us who live in cities, that hint – still stronger in some places than others – of a return to the good times is a big relief. Doing stuff is why we’re here, after all. We came for the food, for the culture, for the nightlife. We came to find new friends or because our friends were already here. And many of us stuck around throughout the pandemic for all those very legit reasons, too.

The survey only takes five minutes, and at the end we’ll tell you exactly how much you love your city. As ever, we’ll be using all your responses to come up with our annual rankings of the world’s best cities and coolest neighborhoods. So go ahead, do your city some justice – and take part in the ultimate stock take of city living in 2022.

Take the survey now!
