Located just 11 miles northwest of Boston, Lexington, Mass., is a historic and picturesque suburb.

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.
Lexington residents enjoy a number of family-friendly amenities, including a state-of-the-art library, a variety of cultural activities, a meticulously maintained town area and top-notch schools. Residents make use of both local and public transit and a commuter bike path, as well as the regional rapid transit network, Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority. Residents also enjoy that the area is just a two- to three-hour's drive from Cape Cod and other regional beachfront areas. Lexington residents cite the area's high quality of life and attractive premises as indicators of its success.
Lexington is primarily a family-focused community. More than 75 percent of the town's households are comprised of families, and almost 40 percent contain children younger than 18. About 21 percent of the households in the area are comprised of singles, who enjoy Lexington's quaint vibe and access to big-city opportunities. The median age in the town is 45.6, making it a well-established location with a slightly older demographic than less historic suburbs.
Lexington is not home to any major college or university. 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. According to City-Data, Lexington ranked no. 81 on the list of Top 100 best educated cities due to its high percentage of college-educated adults.
Although many residents commute to Boston and other nearby cities for work, many outside residents also commute to Lexington for work. 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. Some of the town's business parks are located on Hartwell Avenue, Forbes Road and Hayden Avenue. Lexington Center offers numerous opportunities for retail and service industry employment.
Those searching for Lexington apartments should be aware that just 20.5 percent of the area's homes are renter-occupied units.

The median gross rent in the city is $1,861 per month.
