I'm interested in moving to the Boston area. I lived in Back Bay for a year in 2009 and then bought property in RI. However the commute has worn on me the past seven years and I want to relocate back to the area. Any areas ideal where I can easily jump on a subway line but also easily have my car parked without any monthly parking fee (Back Bay) or shortage of spots (Southie). I was thinking Somerville might be my first best option to look into. Any other neighborhoods?

It really depends on your budget.

Assembly Row. Quincy. Oak Grove. Some complexes near Malden Center have parking. Stations Landing. Some apartment complexes in Alewife have lots of parking. Basically you can find parking anywhere if you have an unlimited budget.

I would focus on Medford and Malden, both have access to T, and ample parking.

Besides Stations Landing and the area surrounding it Medford doesn't have access to a train. Most of Medford requires a bus transfer.

You could look into the Blue Line areas across the harbor as well (Revere, or Jeffries Point in East Boston) - its probable you could find an apartment building with covered parking out there if that's the priority

Where at Alewife? North Cambridge has permits, which are cheap, that may work, but the rentals aren't great. Do those overpriced building right at Alewife not charge for parking?

Since no one else has pointed it out, I'm going to ask: Why are you concerned about a monthly parking fee? Have a budget for what you want and then look for places that fit it. There is no difference between paying $2000 a month in rent with "free parking" and paying $1850 and $150 in parking.
