Overview of Weymouth
Located less than 20 miles from Boston, Weymouth, Mass., is a city of about 54,000 that provides residents with not only easy access to one of the largest cities on the East Coast but great shopping and dining opportunities as well as a rural feel that allows people to escape the hustle and bustle of Beantown.
People seeking Weymouth apartments for rent will find that they can go into Boston each day and be a part of the city's vibrant atmosphere or live a quieter life, visiting nearby beaches and parks. Or they can do both.
Living in Weymouth, MA
Weymouth has a rich history that stretches back nearly four centuries. It was the second oldest settlement in Massachusetts, behind only Plymouth. The city was originally settled by Thomas Weston and his company in 1622 in an area called Wessagusset by the Native Americans. The early settlement failed but by the 1630s it was absorbed by the Massachusetts Bay Company. Weymouth continued to play an important role in both Massachusetts and U.S. history, as it was the birthplace of Abigail Adams, the wife of second president John Adams.
Over the years an industrious city emerged which was home to a number of businesses including the Stetson Shoe Company.
Today, the city has a lot to offer residents. The northern part of the city, which is by the coast, has a number of shops, restaurants and businesses along Route 3A. The southern part of the city is more residential by comparison but people with Weymouth apartments in this area will find all the amenities they need. South Weymouth also contains the Great Pond, which provides a nice venue for leisure and recreation activities.
In addition, the proximity of Boston gives residents even more opportunities to have fun. The city is a short drive away or if you want to beat traffic a number of buses can take you to the "T" - as the Boston subway system is known - which will provide access to the city and surrounding area.
Weymouth Work and Study
People who have apartments in Weymouth will find that commuting into Boston will open up the doors to many career opportunities. But residents need not leave Weymouth for employment.
According to the city's Five Year Consolidated Plan 2010-2014, about 70 percent of workers in Weymouth are in the retail and service sectors. The largest employer in the town is the South Shore Hospital, which has as many as 5,000 employees. The next two entities with the highest number of employees are the city and BJ Wholesalers.
Most of the education opportunities afforded those who live in Weymouth are outside of the city itself. Likely the easiest major school to get to is the University of Massachusetts Boston campus, which is the home of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.

Weymouth Attractions and Special Events
Weymouth is a beautiful city where there are many things to do but its location may be its most attractive feature. Residents can choose to take a short trip to Boston for the day to experience everything that it has to offer, such as top-notch museums and first-rate dining.
However, Weymouth is also close to a number of excellent beaches, such as Nantasket. In addition, the South Shore - as the area south of Boston is known among locals - has a number of historic sites, notably Plymouth, as well as great golf courses.
