open space and easy commuting
Even though Natick was once considered a part of Metro Boston, its easy 15 mile distance from the city makes it at once completely accessible and happily removed from the hubbub of the Hub. Natick wears its history proudly on its sleeve. Settled by colonists in 1651, the Natick area had long been home to the Wampanoag, or Praying Indians. During the Revolutionary War, both English and Praying Indian citizens of Natick fought in the Battles of Lexington and Bunker Hill and served with the Continental Army. The names of the Praying Indian soldiers from Natick are memorialized on a stone marker, along with all of Natick's Revolutionary War veterans, on stone markers in today's Natick Center
Today Natick is a residential community with a small town feel. It’s part of the MetroWest area, a group of towns popular for their proximity to Boston, shopping areas, and attractive apartments for rent. With the Natick real estate market slowing down from its earlier frenetic pace, many would-be buyers are finding that renting Natick apartments is a more affordable option. Natick apartments for rent include not only apartments in newly built luxury buildings, but grand single family and multi family homes as well. Apartments for rent in Natick also include planned communities that offer its residents plenty of amenities, including open floor plans, swimming pools, and recreation centers.
Natick is very easily accessible by car and public transportation. It’s located on the commuter rail for easy access to the city. Natick also has a large and popular shopping center, the Natick Collection (formerly known as the Natick Mall).
