Because Huntington has done well where other towns have faltered, there aren't as many apartments available as there are in some other centers. This means that it isn't as important to pick the right time to apartment shop, so much as it is important to give yourself enough time. You should probably allocate a full six to eight weeks to find a place in Huntington.
Finding an apartment can be hard, especially when there are so many choices. Adding a filter can help narrow your search. With our Quick Filters below, you can search by a price and amenities. After following one of these links, be sure to check out the advanced search filters and then sign up for an Email Alert so you can receive new listings that match your needs.
Landlords in Huntington can be surprisingly particular about who they rent to. The low prices mean that financial screening won't really keep out many people, so they take a careful look at references instead. They may also want to run a credit check or other type of background check on you before renting to you. This is their best tool for ensuring they get high quality tenants in their apartments.
Huntington is very easy to navigate, as the city is small, and you can use almost any conceivable means to get around. First, you have the option of the bus routes operated by the Tri-State Transit Authority. If you want to bike, there is a network of new bike lanes right in the downtown core. If you prefer to walk, the city is small enough that you can get almost anywhere on foot. Finally, you can always drive.
Marshall University, the school who's tragic loss of a football team in a plane crash was retold in the "We Are Marshall" film, is worth visiting. Museums like the Huntington Museum of Art and the Heritage Farm Museum & Village feed the culture hungry among Huntington residents. There are a number of parks, including the 132-acre Rotary Park. One of the most popular bars with the student crowd is Black Sheep Burritos and Brews.
