Strong community, thriving businesses, and a 247-acre lake that is the heart of the town — what more could those looking for apartments to rent ask for? Situated 10 miles north of Boston near I-93 and I-95, Wakefield Massachusetts was first settled in 1638 by a small group of settlers. Today, this thriving suburb of Boston is home to many historic sites, including the oldest inland yacht club.
Quannapowitt Yacht Club, founded in 1884, offers boaters the chance to sail near the city and near Wakefield. Windsurfing, kayaking, and fishing are also popular activities. Lake Quannapowitt and its shores are important to the residents in Wakefield, and many outdoor festivals and activities are held here year-round.
Wakefield has over 150 properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In addition, there are four historic districts. With so much to offer, Wakefield is a popular place for apartment hunters.
