Enjoy Waltham’s relaxed residential vibe and diverse dining scene, and spend your weekends exploring its wooded nature trails
Settle into an easy-going rhythm when you live in one of the relaxed neighborhoods in Waltham. Dive straight into its eclectic dining scene, which covers a whole host of cuisines from across the globe. Chow down on everything from gourmet vegan bites to handmade burgers, or try some authentic Latin American and Persian food. You can turn it into a fun night out by catching an acclaimed film at Embassy Cinema after you’ve enjoyed a leisurely dinner.
When you want to get some fresh air on weekends, you’ll be able to take a stroll through Beaver Brook North Reservation or along the banks of the Charles River, where you can see the beautiful New England foliage at its best. Later, browse galleries full of inspiring works by Warhol and de Kooning in the contemporary collection of The Rose Art Museum.
You’ll be living within easy reach of your studies at Bentley University and Brandeis University when you make your home in Waltham. You’ll also be able to take advantage of the reliable public transit system to connect to the rest of the Boston region’s renowned colleges, including Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University.
After you finish up your school work, you can wander downtown to check out local pubs like Joe Sent Me, where you can join friends for the weekly trivia night. Your new neighborhood also isn’t far from the vibrant student nightlife of Cambridge on the train, so you can enjoy an evening out and then return home to relax in peace.
