Addressing Boston’s full history would take days - possibly weeks or months, even - thanks to it being one of America’s oldest cities and the site of centuries’ worth of history. But perhaps the best way to immerse yourself in Boston’s history is to actually live here, navigating the confusing streets, walking along the Freedom Trail, taking in the amazing sites and architecture on your way to the office or nearby Boston apartments. Students, scholars, visitors and Beantown transplants all enjoy living in the city for various reasons, which is part of the reason residents are choosing to stay planted firmly in their historic hometown instead of up and moving to sprawling suburbia, creating a housing demand that makes the city’s real estate all the more valuable.
One of the most popular perks of Boston is its walkability, and with a walk score of 96, a public transit score of 100 and a bikeability score of 77, residents can leave their cars parked safely at home and get everywhere they need by bus, train, bike or on foot. In fact, a report by the George Washington University predicted Boston will soon become the No. 1 most walkable metropolitan area in the country, beating current leaders New York and Washington, D.C. This is, in part, due to new Boston apartments construction in the city’s booming neighborhoods, giving residents more housing options in more in-demand areas of the historic city.
Some of the more popular neighborhoods and landmarks in Boston include the Downtown area, home to Boston Common and historic sites like Faneuil Hall; the North End, which is the go-to place for authentic Italian cuisine and cannoli along narrow cobblestone streets; enjoy the historic row houses in Beacon Hill, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods that transports visitors back to colonial Boston; and the revitalized South End, now one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods with 30 parks, world-class restaurants and plenty of art galleries and studios lining the streets. Other notable neighborhoods include Allston, Brighton, Chinatown/Leather District, East Boston, Fenway Kenmore, Jamaica Plain, Mid Dorchester, Roxbury and West End, all of which boast their fair share of Boston apartments and unique personalities for residents and visitors to enjoy.
Aside from our city serving as a living history book, home of boycotts and rebellion that led to the American Revolution, it also serves as a gateway to nearby cities and some of the best educational institutions in the world. Local pride runs deep, no matter in what neighborhood your ideal Boston apartments are situated, so grab a lobster roll and sit on the bank of the Charles River and take in all the beauty and convenience Boston has to offer!
