Local Reviews

My neighborhood is in a small town with good vibes. I'm right next door to some good hiking. The local food scene is good

There are just nothing nothing that is possible without them they make it all a possible and better place to live

There isnt really anything unique about my neighborhood. My favorite local business is a corner shop nearby. I like going to restaurants with family and friends.

It is a neighborhood everyone get along the schools are pretty fair also I'm not a going out person they don't have to many restaurants or bars close by so we go maybe 10 minutes out

It's close to school and a store to buy food. People mind their own business and they are watchful of any bad elements coming through.

I like to go to Mexicans restaurants because it's always to many variations everyday menu changes every time i go

About

Lynn, MA

Overview of Lynn

Head northeast out of Boston on the Salem Turnpike for about 26 miles and you will run into the quaint New England town of Lynn, Mass. Located in the heart of Essex County, Lynn is one of the fastest-growing areas in Boston. With beautiful oceanfront views, a great quality of life and an involved and passionate community, it is easy to see why so many Massachusetts residents are calling Lynn apartments for rent their new home. With everything that this fantastic city has to offer, it should come as no surprise that Lynn has seen a rise in population from 2000 to 2010, according to information from City-Data.

Living in Lynn, MA

Lynn was founded around 350 years ago when Salem residents wanted to live in a more open and rural area. Although many people in the area began developing Lynn into an agricultural and fishing community, the city quickly became known for making high-quality leather shoes, leading to its first tannery being built in 1629. Many European settlers began flocking to the town, building up Lynn's economy and by the mid-1800s, Lynn became known as one of the biggest shoemaking centers of the world. Today, Lynn has developed into one of the state's most culturally diverse and hard-working urban areas. Although the city remained agricultural and small in size for many years, Lynn is now home to more than 90,000 residents.

Lynn Attractions and Special Events

Since Lynn is a coastal city, it should come as no shock that its seaport marina and riverfront is one of the visited and cherished attractions. Here, residents can enjoy yachting, sailing and deep-sea fishing. Lynn Heritage Waterfront State Park is among one of the sights along the coastline that many residents enjoy as well. Here you can learn about the city's history in shoe manufacturing, among other 18th and 19th century innovations that it is well-known for.
