Boston is one of America's oldest cities, which is evidenced by the cobblestone streets and old brick homes in many parts of the city. While maintaining its historical feel, Boston has also grown with the times and boasts many modern buildings and a youthful energy. Situated on the Charles River, the city has many neighborhoods nestled in and among its hills. Immigration to Boston has bolstered rich cultural and sports traditions and has caused ethnic pockets to spring up throughout the city. Furnished Apartments Boston can help you find the perfect short term rental in Boston in one of the areas that best suits your needs.
Back Bay is Boston's most affluent neighborhood, and one of the most expensive to live in. You may even see celebrities shopping on trendy Newbury Street, or sitting in a posh restaurant. Whether or not you have the cash to rent a Boston furnished apartment in this neighborhood, it is certainly worth a visit to gaze at the 19th-century brownstone architecture and stroll down the cobblestone sidewalks, and perhaps even to have a beer at the now famous Cheers Bar on Market Street (originally called the Bull & Finch Pub).
Tiny Beacon Hill - the area is just one square mile - is, indeed, located on a hill and is one of Boston's oldest neighborhoods. If you want to catch a glimpse of colonial Boston, take a trip to Beacon Hill to see its brick row houses, narrow streets, and gas lamps. Many famous historical Americans, like Robert Frost and Daniel Webster, lived in Beacon Hill. For a true colonial experience, look for short term rentals Boston in this charming neighborhood not far from downtown.
Charlestown, located just across the Boston Harbor from downtown and on the banks of the Mystic River, is home to a large Irish-American population as well as a growing number of young professionals. Navy geeks should look for short term rentals in Boston in Charlestown to be near such historical landmarks as the U.S.S. Constitution, the Bunker Hill Monument, and the old Charlestown Navy Yard.
Just south of the Back Bay and downtown Boston, the South End is a friendly, diverse area consisting of families, young professionals, and gays and lesbians alike. It is also a Boston Landmark District, thanks to the Victorian brownstones lining Tremont Street and Massachusetts Avenue. If you are looking for a vibrant arts community along with plenty of green space, let us help you find furnished apartments in Boston in the South End.
Adjoining the South End is South Boston. This area was once home to a large Irish Catholic population but has recently become an attractive neighborhood for young professionals and families. True to its Irish-American roots, South Boston still hosts the city's annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, which locals and visitors flock to. The South Boston waterfront is being revamped with offices, retail buildings, and living space and will likely become a popular (and pricey) place to settle.
Roxbury was once a farming community that was later absorbed by the city and is now known as the center of Black culture in Boston. The neighborhood has recently been revitalized, thanks to housing initiatives and a new business district. Catching a performance at the Roxbury Center for the Arts at Hibernian Hall makes this area worth a visit.
A large amount of Boston's Latino population lives in Jamaica Plain, also known as "JP." Large Cuban and Dominican populations rub shoulders with young families and a growing number of Boston's gay and lesbian community. Because it is such a diverse neighborhood, Jamaica Plain has a great selection of restaurants and a lively feel. Check out furnished apartments in Boston in this neighborhood if you would like to be able to run, walk, or bike with the locals along Jamaica Pond.
Cambridge is not officially a neighborhood of Boston but is part of the Greater Boston area. Best-known as the location of Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge has grown into a small and vibrant city in its own right. It is a beautiful, colonial mix of squares and narrow streets. While the area remains diverse thanks to the large student populations, much of Cambridge is quite affluent. Look for short term rentals Boston in Cambridge if you want to be slightly outside the city's center and able to join the hoards of runners and walkers that are there every day along the Charles River.
Located on the western edge of Boston, Brookline has evolved into a suburb of the city and has a large amount of green space. The area is an interesting mix of urban and suburban and has a largely white population. Parts of the Boston University and Boston College campuses are located in Brookline. If you'd like to consider being in a suburb that's relatively close to the city, then you may want to consider short term rentals in Boston located in or near the Brookline area.
North of Boston is the small city of Somerville, which for a long time was a primarily blue-collar area known for its high crime rate. However, gentrification since the 1990s has transformed this neighborhood into an artistic mecca with a streamlined government. Somerville still houses large Irish-American and Italian-American populations, so you might want to head up there for some great food.
