BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Is the Boston accent sexy? Some people think so.
Big 7 Travel surveyed some of their 1.5 million followers on social media on which place in America has the sexiest accent. They compiled a list and Boston ranked second. Texas took the number one slot.
A few people were surprised by this news.
“Very much surprised. I think that’s pretty funny,” one woman told WBZ NewsRadio’s Chris Fama.
The Boston accent is fairly recognizable, and often depicted in movies featuring actors from the area such as Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg, and Ben Affleck.
“Well, it’s definitely one of the most noticeable accents in America. You know, I’m not from here. So, anywhere I am around the states, as soon as I hear a Boston accent, I know it. Some attractive people in city, I guess, so I can see why,” one man said of the survey.
Take a listen:
Another New England state also made it on the list—Maine.
Here are the top 10 rankings:
3. New York
9. St. Louis
