Living in Cambridge

The city of Cambridge was founded in 1630 and named after the prestigious university in England, so it's only fitting that some of the world's brightest students seek Cambridge apartments for rent to study at local colleges. Over the years, the city has been home to a plethora of different cultures, which have come together to create the diverse community that Cambridge enjoys today. The local landscape has an overwhelming feeling of academia and history, which can be enjoyed in the numerous museums, historical sites and public art projects that are scattered throughout Cambridge's different "squares," or neighborhoods. If you relocate to Cambridge apartments, you'll be able to take advantage of these attractions, as well as the people watching, shopping and scenic walk along the Charles River that the city is known for.

Cambridge Apartments and Cost of Living
