Overview of Lexington

Located just 11 miles northwest of Boston, Lexington, Mass., is a historic and picturesque suburb. This affluent and meticulously maintained gem has been welcoming new residents and visitors for years and is proud of its reputation as an attractive and family-friendly location. Home to around 31,400 people, Lexington remains one of the most desirable areas in the Boston region.

Those searching for Lexington apartments for rent should enjoy historic touches and modern convenience. First settled as an agricultural community in 1642, the area has grown and evolved throughout the past three centuries. In line with the rest of the country, Lexington's population boom came when suburbanization led many families out of the cities and into locations like Lexington's. This primarily residential town offers entertainment, shopping, employment, dining and more.

However, Bentley University, Middlesex Community College, Brandeis University, Tufts University, Lesley University, Harvard University and Cambridge College are located less than 10 miles from Lexington.

The city's population increases by about 23 percent on workdays due to commuting, but only 24 percent of the city's labor force lives and works in Lexington. Therefore, Lexington residents themselves tend to commute to other areas for work, while the town's labor force lives elsewhere and commutes to Lexington.
