  • Guaranteed delivery: Our three-day direct guarantee means you choose the date your belongings are delivered to your new home.

Top Neighborhoods To Move to in Boston

The greater Boston area has many great neighborhoods to choose from, but these areas consistently rank as some of the best to live in:

  • Cambridge: Popular with students and young professionals, Cambridge offers a relaxed lifestyle and small-town feel without sacrificing the amenities of a big city. It scores a perfect five on public transit and walkability, with city laws promoting clean energy, cycling, walking, and mass transit.
  • North End: This Boston neighborhood is filled with young professionals, families, and life-long residents. Often referred to as the area’s “Little Italy,” it has great restaurants, old-world cafes, parks, and historical attractions, including a large portion of the Freedom Trail.
  • Seaport: Want to live in Boston’s hottest new neighborhood? Seaport is for you! This section of South Boston has undergone an incredible transformation over the last decade, giving residents access to cultural centers, museums, and amazing views of Boston Harbor.
  • Beacon Hill & West End: Young professionals looking to live close to downtown enjoy living in Boston’s oldest neighborhoods. Narrow cobblestone streets with gas lighting and Federal-style homes offer a historic charm just a short walk to modern amenities, including a lively nightlife, museums, and great restaurants.
  • Brookline: Part of Norfolk County, Brookline is close to the Boston Medical School and Boston University. First settled in 1638, the community’s impressive history is reflected in its classical architecture and vibrant culture.
  • Additional suburbs: Quincy, Worcester, and Belmont are just a few of the Boston neighborhoods offering a diverse range of living experiences, amenities, and lifestyles. Quincy’s rich history and stunning waterfront balance urban and suburban living. Worcester, farther away, is a city in its own right with a unique blend of modern and historical attractions. Belmont is famous for its strong sense of community and excellent schools.
