Overview of Malden

In a state that is steeped in history, Malden seems to hold its own when held up to other Massachusetts cities. This rich background has shaped the metropolis, and its colorful residents embody the spirit of the previous inhabitants of the area. People looking for Malden apartments for rent will notice how close the city is to downtown Boston, providing easy access for commuters and students to the vibrant capital of Massachusetts. The metropolitan area may be small and full of narrow streets, but the 60,100 residents that call this city home are proud of where they live. The city has also gained national prominence, as it was named to the BusinessWeek Top Places To Raise Your Kids list in 2009.

Living in Malden

The modern city of Malden is within a short drive of Logan International Airport and has convenient access to a number of beaches. People who want to work in Boston often look at Malden apartments for rent for an affordable housing option. The city takes pride in its local character, and for this reason, there are a number of parks and public recreation spaces in the area. The small town feel can be escaped by those with bigger ambitions in terms of entertainment, as the many sights and attractions in Boston are a short drive away from apartments for rent in Malden. The town is also a part of one of the longest-running high school football rivalries in the country, as it has played Medford High School since 1889. The locals from both areas come out in numbers for this annual game, a sight to see for any people moving into the city.

Malden apartments are often close to the Orange Line of the MBTA, which provides quick access to the downtown area.

Apartments in Malden Work and Study

Many of the top employers in the city, other than local government administrative and service positions, are small businesses, as the locals tend to support shops that are owned by Malden residents. Apartments in Malden are near the Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education central offices, and the local school system reflects this devotion to teaching. In terms of higher education, the city is located directly outside of Boston, which is home to more than 100 colleges and universities like Harvard, Boston College and Boston University. Students looking for affordable housing at any one of these institutions may favor Malden rentals, and a short drive or a ride on the "T" will deliver them to their destination.
