Hey all ~

I've accepted a job located in the Fenway area and am on the hunt for a new apartment. I'm relocating from out of state and am a bit unsure of what areas are a good place to live, yet affordable. I wouldn't even mind commuting in from, for example, Quincy, etc.

Also, I'd appreciate any general advice for moving, settling in and getting comfortable with the city, places to go/see/do, etc.

Cheers!

First advice, you should not drive, take the subway to work. With that said, I suggest you find something along the green line. Quincy is a suburb so you won't find much city amenities there, you will also need to change from Red to Green line, so it will be a longer commute. You probably should be able to find affordable housing in the Fenway area, Allston or Brighton. These are student areas. If you prefer a more quiet suburb, you should search in the west, like Newton and Brookline. These tend to be pricier though. Check out the real estate section in boston.com for what apartments are available in the area. Good luck.
