Swampscott: Massachusetts Livin' At Its Finest
Chicago's got a pretty famous north shore, but did you know Boston's got one too? Yes, yes, there's always a northern end to any given shoreline (unless it's perfectly east-west, a rarity), but you know what we mean. Swampscott's location about 15 miles to the north of Beantown makes it ever so slightly colder than Boston proper, which is already super cold. But no matter, once you're snug in your new pad here in the Bay State, it won't much matter.

The Elementary Swampscott
Don't laugh at the name. Be bigger than that.
This Boston suburb, though it very well may prefer to think of itself as ""Swampscott"" to get out from under the shadow of the ""big B,"" was at one point in time home to the Naumkeag tribe, who had come to the area to fish and hunt among other things, like sleep and eat. The thing is, they apparently came to the area at more or less the same time Europeans did, which is a bit of a counter-historical shocker for us, seeing as how we were raised to think that the one came before the other. In any case, truth or no, the area known today as Swampscott was for the longest time a veritable epicenter of fishing activity for the entire region. It's said that at one point every third man in town was a fishermen. The rest were a scattered assortment of shoe makers, farmers, and merchants peddling various odds and ends. But mostly ends. We think. The historical account is murky.
Like many a scenic place (even those with a name that might suggest otherwise) just outside a major urban center, this was the location for the construction of a goodly (and gaudy) number of mansions and massive estates in the 1800s. In this case for the wealthy denizens of Boston, who enjoyed the relatively less developed shorelines and crashing waves.
Today Swampscott is marked by neither the overwhelming presence of the fishing industry nor professional hospitality providers. In fact, the biggest occupational categories are wholesale, trade, services, and then government, in that order. Of course those are 1998 figures, so you may want to consult a more up-to-date reference, especially if you're professionally employed to do so. Or a statistics nerd. There's no shame in the latter, you know.
Enjoy all this Essex County locality has to offer, including of course the great apartments, and remember to salt those walkways if you're landlord isn't responsible for arranging that.
Swampscott: Civic Fun and Then Some
The city has a cultural council, which is good news for those worried about having to trek into Boston any time the art bug bit. Not much is known about what they do specifically, but you can bet the last thing they're doing is watching TV. We hope. The Swampscott Yacht Club is a force to be reckoned with around here, and while you'd think that every last member would be a boater (and maybe, just maybe, actually own a yacht) in fact only about half of members of this organization are. They exploit the heck out of Nahant Bay, in the good way, and even like to organize those freezing swims popularly recognized as a ""Polar Bear Plunge."" Brrr. And if you can't imagine life without your dog, especially life without your dog's freedom (once and a while), then consider taking part in the Swampscott Park for Off-leash Time, otherwise known as ""SPOT."" Made up of residents who just love their dogs oh so much, the folks that make it all happen encourage you to ""see SPOT run"" by helping out via the financial route or good old fashioned volunteer time.
Happy apartment hunting, and enjoy all that this Mass town has to offer!
