Overview of Waltham

Known as "The Watch City," the city of Waltham is one of the most unique, historical and charming communities in eastern Massachusetts. Because Waltham is just 22 minutes from downtown Boston, people who live in Waltham apartments for rent can enjoy living in a small city atmosphere, but still have all the perks of a major metropolis nearby. Living here also gives you easy access to public transportation, several beautiful parks and a prime location near Cambridge and Interstates 90 and 95. With everything that this charming suburb has to offer, why wouldn't you want to move into apartments for rent in Waltham?

Living in Waltham

Waltham is home to more than 60,000 residents, according to the 2010 U.S. Census, giving it an excellent New England, small-town feel. This city is also known for its excellent school system, giving young families even more incentive to move into Waltham apartments for rent. There are also several parks and recreational facilities for residents in Waltham apartments to enjoy, including Prospect Hill Park, Logan Park, Lowell Field and the Veterans Memorial Athletic Complex and Skating Rink. One of the biggest festivals held annually in Waltham is the Watch City Festival, a fantastic two-day celebration that chronicles the city's history in watchmaking.

Waltham Apartments and Cost of Living

The city has seen a modest amount of growth in recent years due to the ideal location of Waltham apartments for rent, a diverse population, great schools and easy commute. However, living here is not cheap. According to City-Data, the cost of living index in apartments in Waltham is around 37 percent more expensive than the average American town, but considering how close it is to Boston and the surrounding metropolitan area, it's expected that the cost of living will be higher. AreaVibes gave Waltham a liveability score of 78 because of the area's local amenities, stable housing market, low crime rate and high income per capita.

Waltham Apartments Work and Study

According to Education Portal, there are several colleges and universities for students in Waltham. Many of them are highly esteemed schools as well, including Brandeis University, Wellesley College and Massachusetts Bay Community College. There are also numerous colleges and universities available to Waltham residents in nearby Boston. Waltham has a history of being involved in watchmaking and the Industrial Revolution, but those aren't the only industries that are popular here. According to the city's Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, some of the top employers in the city are Brandeis University, Bank of America, Keyspan, Nova Biomedical Corporation and Raytheon Corporation.
