Overview of Cambridge

Located right outside of downtown Boston, Cambridge apartments for rent are popular with both students and families looking to settle down in this exciting, nurturing city. Home to cultural food stores, fun nightlife, personalized shops and unique hotspots, Cambridge is a place where anyone can feel comfortable. The more than 105,000 residents who live here are known as "Cantabrigians," and constantly help to inspire and support the innovative ideas and research happening within the walls of many local institutions.

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

Although the cost of living here is on the high side - the median gross rent is about $1,470 a month -  Cambridge apartments for rent still make great homes for those looking to live in one of the United States' premier communities. Despite the prices, AreaVibes noted that Cambridge is "Extremely Livable" and awarded the city a livability score of 77 because of the easy accessibility to groceries, shopping, food and drink, education, libraries, public transit and entertainment.  Residents living in Cambridge apartments can expect to pay $3.85 for a gallon of gasoline, $2.55 for a gallon of milk, $1.72 for a loaf of bread and $2.27 for a dozen eggs.

Apartments in Cambridge Work and Study

Although Cambridge used to be a large player in the manufacturing industry, today, Cambridge apartments for rent are home to employees who work in a variety of fields. Educational institutions, science-related companies and biomedical firms have all established themselves here, and recruit graduates from the city's prestigious universities. Top employers in town include Genzyme, Biogen Idec, Millenium Pharmaceuticals, Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Cambridge is one of the most important educational centers in the world, and is home to a substantial number of competitive institutions. Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are both located here, and are hailed for cultivating and producing some of the brightest minds in many industries. For those seeking opportunities outside of the Ivy League, Lesley University, Cambridge College, Longy School of Music and the Episcopal Divinity School also call the city home. All these institutes of higher learning make apartments in Cambridge ideal for students.
