As the second oldest town in Massachusetts, Weymouth dates back to 1622. Today, this charming town, located in Norfolk County in the South Shore region of the Boston Metropolitan area, attracts those looking for rental apartments centrally located to Boston, the coast, and historic sites.
Weymouth’s Great Pond is a beautiful spot that remains virtually unchanged. Formed by a glacier 12,000 years ago, this natural body of water is the main source of the town’s water supply.
Hingham Bay sits to the north of Weymouth and includes several small islands, all of which are part of Boston Harbor Island National Recreation Area. In addition, Weymouth contains the Weymouth Back River and the Weymouth Fore River.
Residents of Weymouth enjoy being only 12 miles southeast of Boston and 42 miles northeast of Providence, Rhode Island. The town is mature but ever-changing, and newcomers will find a variety of apartments to rent.
