Overview of Boston

Boston - or Bean Town, as it has affectionately been nicknamed - is one of the great American cities, and Boston apartments for rent allow you to take advantage of all that it has to offer. As one of the most livable cities in the United States, Boston combines small-town comfort with diverse city living, which allows the more than 600,000 people who live here to "taste, touch and experience things from all over the world," according to the city's official website. Whether you are soaking up the energetic college atmosphere in Allston, experiencing culture in Dorchester, taking in natural green beauty in Roslindale or enjoying the neighborly vibe in Brighton, Boston is a constantly changing city that always has something to offer.

Living in Boston

Boston has a very rich history, including monumental events such as the Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party, Battle of Bunker Hill and the birthplace of the American Revolution. The city was always a popular home for elite European residents, but when the local economy boomed in the 1970s, Boston experienced significant growth, leading it to have the second-largest skyline in the Northeast after New York. While the personal growth opportunities here are attractive, it is Boston's unique vibe that draws new residents to search for Boston apartments for rent. This laid-back metropolis has everything from upscale eateries to esteemed nightlife, famous ballparks and unique architecture. If you're looking for attractions here, check out the Museum of Fine Arts, Quincy Market, New England Aquarium or Sam Adams Brewery as you're touring apartments in Boston.

Boston Apartments and Cost of Living

As one of the Northeast's biggest cities, Boston has a pretty high cost of living index. However, because of all its accolades, AreaVibes deemed Boston a "very livable" city with a livability score of 73. While living in Boston apartments, you can expect to pay $3.85 for a gallon of gasoline and $2.55 for a gallon of milk. You can find duplexes, condos, townhomes and single-family houses in this city.

Apartments in Boston Work and Study

As with many large cities, the range of employment opportunities in Boston is extremely large - whether you seek a blue collar position or something a little more specialized, you're sure to find a thriving industry that meets your needs. According to the Boston Redevelopment Authority, the top employers here include the Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston University, the Children's Hospital of Boston, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Liberty Mutual Holding Company, State Street Bank & Trust Company and Fidelity.

Boston is also a hub for higher education, and each year, thousands of students search for Boston apartments for rent to find a home for the upcoming semesters. Boston University may be the largest in town, but it's just one of many. Boston College, Northeastern University, Berklee College of Music, Suffolk University and the University of Massachusetts, Boston, among close to 100 others, are located here. For those with their sights on the Ivy League, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University are also located in the area, which are great for particularly driven residents living in Boston apartments.
