Overview of Boston

The historical city of Boston is a dynamic and thriving destination for potential residents seeking one-bedroom apartments. From the Freedom Trail highlighting early events in American history to the delights of Quincy Market and the wonders of the Museum of Science, there's a little something for everyone in this fascinating city. Catch a lecture at Harvard or a game at Fenway Park, try shopping on Newbury Street or sample some authentic Cantonese cuisine in Chinatown. One-bedroom apartments are plentiful in this incredible city, and no matter your moods or requirements, it offers its residents endless options to match them.

For those who enjoy unwinding after a long day, there's always Cheers, the bar made famous by the long-running television show. The Green Dragon Tavern is another good choice that boasts a far more historic pedigree, having opened in 1654 and frequented by none other than Paul Revere. For those hungering to try the local catch off Cape Cod, Legal Sea Foods is a citywide institution.

With a city as complex and varied as Boston, it helps to have information right at your fingertips. Rent.com can assist with every aspect of apartment hunting, from deciding which part of the city meets your requirements to listing details about each apartment for rent.
