Altitude is located on Kennedy Drive in Malden, a stone’s throw from Route 1. Head north and you can count the seconds until you reach Saugus. Head south and you reach Revere in the same short time span.
For those of you who like the sound of a Boston apartment for rent next to a smorgasbord of restaurants, grocery stores, entertainment, and shopping, this is an ideal spot.
A Sweet Treat
Let’s start with a gem situated a mere 9-minute drive from Altitude: Kane’s Donuts. This Saugus staple, which after 60-plus years recently spawned a sibling in downtown Boston, opens at 3:30 a.m., allowing you to get your early-morning sweet fix on the way to work.
The artisanal donuts are made on site with local and organic ingredients and have a big leg up on the competition, according to Yelp critics (“I drove 10 hours with three kids under 6 just to have a donut and get a mug from here”). August brings specialty flavors like chocolate PB glaze, key lime pie, and ginger pear fritter.
Best of Takeout Food
Diners also give two thumbs up to Shoyu Chinese & Japanese Cuisine, located next to another must-visit, Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt, up the street from Altitude. Whether you choose to come in for dinner or make it your go-to takeout joint, count on some seriously fresh sushi that some say is the best north of Boston.
Perhaps you want to catch a movie before going for dinner? Showcase Cinema is practically your next-door neighbor. As the movie lets out, you have a sea of choices. Right around the corner, Malden’s top restaurants line up: Exchange Street Bistro, a modern martini bar with eclectic fare; Jack’s Ristorante, a homey Italian venue; Habesha Restaurant, a small Ethiopian eatery known for its flavor-packed traditional dishes; and Sousaku Bistro, a Japanese tapas bar with a great atmosphere.
Shopping is a breeze too at the nearby Northgate Shopping Center and Square One Mall. The former is located next to Market Basket and Stop & Shop while Trader Joe’s is found just beyond the latter.
Whatever you decide to pick up, you’ll enjoy cooking in the brand new kitchen of your Altitude apartment. Stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, a gas stove, and designer cabinetry are just a few features that make Altitude such a special home.
