New England in general, and the Boston area in particular, have developed a reputation: Nearly everyone in the country can picture a Massachusetts resident trudging through the snow, ordering clam chowder, or rooting for the Red Sox. But as those who find homes for rent in Malden, Massachusetts, remind us, each small community in this area retains some charm and personality that make it both special and diverse. In recent years, those in the Malden community have embraced the diversity in their area by being the first U.S. town to perform and recognize a same-sex marriage, and by supporting the large population of artists who have chosen to make their home in Malden rental homes.
Living and Renting in Malden
People who rent homes in Malden are very likely to experience the area's vibrant arts scene, whether as a participant or spectator. A grassroots organization in the town, Malden Arts, has been especially visible in transforming the town into a living gallery. For example, those renting Malden homes will see evidence of the organization's Window Arts Malden project, which filled the windows of local business with the works of local artists.
In addition to supporting a diversity of lifestyles, the town has taken pains to ensure that a variety of recreation facilities can meet the needs of its residents. Malden contains about 30 different parks, including the 400-meter track at MacDonald Stadium, the 25-acre Fellsmere pond, and the state-of-the-art YMCA.
