What are some cheaper surrounding cities/towns near Boston?

Okay so pretty much, i'd like to move to Boston. But i've heard that the city was expensive, and i'm no millionaire, so I was wondering if any of you Bostonians could give me some advice...

I'm looking for surrounding towns/cities that have fairly cheap residency. I use 'fairly cheap' loosely.

Info: i'm currently living in a duplex, two bedroom, one bath, i'd call it a mid-sized living space.

I pay 500 a month for it.

So I guess i'm hoping for something around that price range. Maybe $500-$700 a month? If you can give me some surrounding areas like a 30-40 min drive at most?

    Cambridge, Somerville, Quincy, Revere, Waltham, Medford, Malden, Woburn, Burlington, Watertown, methuen.

    Those are a few that are least expensive, but unless you get a roommate your not going to find any place within a 30-40min drive from Boston for $500 a month not possible. If you only want to pay $500 you could get an apartment in Boston with roommates and be paying that or a little less for 3 or more roommates.

    I live in Somerville grew up here and we own a 2 family in front of our house and the first floor is $1000 with one bed room, a bath, and a living room and kitchen. The second floor technically has 3 bedrooms because it has 2 floors, 3 bedrooms, a bath, living room and kitchen, and thats $1400 a month.

    If you wanted to live further then western mass would meet your $500-$700 a month rent.

Boston is famous it whilst the "cradle of liberty" and Faneuil Hall is among the areas must-see just as the adjacent Faneuil Hall Marketplace, a place which includes three extended halls: Quincy Industry, North Industry, and South Market. , Faneuil Hall Marketplace is dating from the early 19th century and has become occupied by a lively assortment of stores, restaurants, and exhibitions.

    Everywhere is being developed, and rents are very high.

    You would be living with a bunch of roommates if that's your budget.

    It might be better to rethink the idea - it's no place to be if you cannot afford to live in a decent place, and you can't on that amount. Most of the rest of the country has more to offer - seriously.

    The governor is bucking for a higher gas tax, and then there are tolls and parking - it's incredibly expensive everywhere you look.
