Finding Your Digs In Brockton
Brockton fancies itself the "City of Champions", because it's sported, so to speak, so many athletic winners that it's garnered a reputation as a place with, well, maybe something in the water. Indeed, maybe it's not water at all, but rather Gatorade. Whatever the source of this seventh largest city in Massachusetts' success in turning out masters of the kinetic - like boxing legend Rocky Marciano - we sincerely hope that it rubs off on your efforts in landing a rad pad in Brockton. Then again, who needs hope with a site like this on your side?
Figures For Apartment Rentals Past
Brockton's bountiful blocks of bodacious brick abodes (whew!) will easily impress any statesider with a penchant for European style architecture. A good looking neighborhood is a quality of life issue, so no, it's not superficial to care. Surely, somewhere within Brockton's hard red walls exists an apartment space that will have you singing the praises of this Bay State city of nearly 100,000 New England patriots. But do your homework first. Consider us your tutor. Start your investigation into Brockton's apartment gems by clicking on the rentals listed below.
The Elementary Brockton
So this whole "City of Champions" thing appears to be a pretty big deal. Brockton's mayor, Ms. Linda Balzotti, is all aboard, and she officially welcomes you to the city that disciplined training built. Ok, that's not entirely true. Construction workers and architects had alot to do with it too. You can thank them for this, this, and last but not last built, this.
Apart from Brockton's disproportionate contribution to the world of physical sport, it's known for being a big "firster". The first to give the world a few different things, including the Thomas Edison approved three wire underground electrical system; the first electrically operated fire station in the US (seeing a theme so far?); and, on a more miscellaneous but smile-inducing note, the first department store Santa, in 1890. In fact, over a hundred years after this precedent setting event, Brockton would revisit its affiliation with the fat and jolly one by breaking the world record for the most number of people in one place sporting a Santa hat.
This prompts us to ask: When record breaking is that specific, isn't everyone a winner, somehow, in some way? But we can save that philosophical reflection for another day...
Brockton's been commended for being one of the best places for young people in the country. And by young, we don't mean twenty-something, and by "best places", we don't mean best places to drink, cavort, and generally rabble rouse among one's fresh faced peers. No, Brockton has effectively dedicated much of its resources to lowering its high school drop out rate, catering to after school programs, and just generally finding methods for improving the outcomes for the Brocktonians in their midst that have yet to sprout a grey hair. To this, we tip our hats - and sag our pants.
Killing Time And Spending Money In Brockton
Brockton's opportunities for living it up upon leaving your apartment - either in a group or alone (and either one is just fine, nobody here is judging) - are ample. Sports fans can take in a game of baseball with the Brockton Rox, a team whose namesake resembles a botched scramble of the words "Boston Red Sox". Coincidence? Likely not. For the sports fan with an intellectual side, you could do alot worse than visit the Brockton Historical Society's museums. Among them you can view an homage to boxing legend Rocky Marciano - the "Brockton Blockbuster" - and in the process take a few swings at becoming a bona fide Massachusetts sports history buff.
Assuming by now that you've got a black eye (and a head full of newly obtained knowledge), it may serve you well to find a place to get to get a good, stiff drink. Sidelines Sports Bar, Dino's Bar, and the Plymouth County Bar Association should all help you achieve that goal quite handily.
Oh, wait, that last one isn't actually a bar. Our bad.
Remember, this a heavily college town too, so finding a strapping young brain to pick shouldn't be too hard, should an encounter with the folks who will be running our country one day be an activity to your liking.
