Waltham apartments place locals and transplants in the midst of a historical university town with industrial roots, while retaining close proximity to Boston and the Charles River. Strong historical roots in the Watch City are celebrated with views of the city skyline and an incredible number of preserved estates, while Equity properties keep residents living in modern comfort amid their historical surroundings.
Apartment living directly on the Charles River is enviable for many reasons, partly because it allows residents the option to literally step out the door and kayak or canoe across to Boston. Those who prefer to use public transportation will find pleasing proximity to transportation lines, as well as pedestrian and bike-friendly streets. The Riverwalk and hiking trails make getting out and about for recreation a big part of living in the area, especially when the weather is warm.
Brandeis and Bentley Universities add to the culturally active city but families of young kids will also find schools, YMCAs and other family friendly offerings balance out the scene in Waltham. Beaver Brook Reservation, ski trails, parks and sprawling estates offer up diverse green space throughout the city while museums, theater, music and Waltham Arts Council keep the art scene active.
Exploring Moody Street’s dining and drinking establishments, such as Masao’s, Tempo and The Gaff, is one of the plentiful perks of living in Waltham. Although Boston is nearby, the dining in Waltham does lure many to the area to eat. Main Street joins Moody in making up the downtown, where independent bookshops and ethnic grocery shops add to the vibrant community dynamic. As can be expected with so many higher learning institutions, Waltham has the feel of a bigger city due to its arts, dining, and independent shops.
To enjoy the active area of Waltham while staying luxuriously pampered, settle into one of the Equity properties in this city on the Charles River.
