People who are shopping for a home for rent in New England are probably well aware of the aspects of life in the American Northeast that so many people find appealing, and that bring great pride to native New Englanders: There are the mesmerizing seasons, the ragged coast and its bounty of seafood, an unmatched passion for local sports, and the lush expanse of green wilderness. Young professionals and new families who are eager to experience these gems of the New England lifestyle certainly have a number of options as they search for new homes. But in many ways, no lifestyle embodies all of the area's finest elements quite like renting a home in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Because the city is located just north of Boston, renting a home in Cambridge puts residents at the hub of New England culture. The historic Freedom Trail -- highlighting a few landmarks of the American Revolution -- the much-loved Boston Red Sox, and the widely-heralded Harvard University are all packed into this centrum of the Northeast.
In addition, renters in Cambridge homes find their abodes in a comfortable city where energy keeps the scene vibrant and festive even during the wintry months. Kendall, Central, Harvard and Porter squares can all be conveniently reached by Boston's public transportation system, the T, and each harbors its own local gems as well. For instance, those in Cambridge rentals can stroll over to the Kendall Square cinema to catch a traditional Irish band, cult movie classic, concert series documentary or any other Friday night film.
