A Lifelong Love of Learning
Many people move to Reading to take advantage of the town's excellent school system. The town has worked hard over the years to integrate with the inner city schools of Boston, giving overcrowded students from the city a chance to receive the top notch education that the students in Reading have been getting. Parents and future parents will be happy to hear that schools in the area continue to celebrate socioeconomic and cultural diversity while continuing to offer excellent education. But the learning doesn't stop at graduation for the people of Reading. Adults can take a variety of fun and educational courses from the town's Recreation Department. Renters can learn to paint, dance, or brush up on their computer skills, among other things, by signing up to take a class or two. If it's a higher education you're after, there aren't any universities right in town, but the Boston metropolitan area has 52 different schools to choose from.
Spending Some Time Outside
Not everyday is bright and sunny in Massachusetts, but in Reading, renters won't ever have to worry about wasting one minute of sunshine. The town is nearly surrounded by parks, so many apartments are within walking distance of some of this great, outdoor space. If you're the outdoorsy type, you can have your pick of over a dozen parks. You’ll enjoy plenty of time outside taking advantage of the city’s sports fields, fishing ponds, nature trails, and playgrounds. Renters will also be a short drive from Lake Quannapowitt. The lake is a popular spot with the locals for hiking, boating, swimming, fishing, sunbathing and, in some seasons, a farmer's market.
Getting Your Game On
Renters in Reading tend to be a sporty sort. If you love watching a good game, you’re bound to feel at home in Reading. Boston, which is only twenty minutes away, is home to a team for every major American sport (and quite a few for you may not have ever seen before). Of course, you have the Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins, and Celtics, but Boston is also home to fantastic teams in soccer, indoor and outdoor lacrosse, flat track roller derby (which is possibly the world's most rough and tumble sport), and tennis. Nary a week goes by without a home game in one or another of these athletic offerings and with Boston so close, it's easy to take an afternoon to cheer on the home team whenever the mood strikes.
If it's playing a sport that gets your heart pumping, the town organizes quite a few leagues for adults to play in. If you haven't played on a team since you were a kid, don't despair. Many of the leagues are aimed at beginner and casual players (though there are a few with more serious players). Whatever your game, taking an afternoon to play outside is a great way to meet some new friends in your new town.
