City or Suburb? 10 Rentals Offering the Best of Each Locale

Posted on Updated on

Whether you want to live in the bustling heart of the city or the laidback ‘burbs, these rentals offer something for everyone (and at less than $2,000 a month).

If you’re looking for a rental in a major metropolitan area, you’ve got plenty of options. One big decision you’ll need to make is whether to live in the city proper or one of its suburbs. The city offers the allure of adventure, the opportunity to live without the extra cost of car, and often a shorter commute to work. Meanwhile, the suburbs may provide lower rents, larger spaces, and easier access to nature.

These rentals compare what you can get for $2,000 in five major cities and one of their more suburban areas.
