This former blue-collar community has changed as high-tech and pharmaceutical companies have moved in. Just 12 miles from Bostons center yet right on the edge of a rural area, Waltham is a relatively affordable suburb thats also home to Bentley College and Brandeis University.
Waltham is also the site of the Waltham Watch Factory, which dates back to the Industrial Revolution, along with several historical museums that show the citys ties to that time period. Unfortunately, property taxes are high.
