With its elegant neighborhoods, excellent schools, and convenient access to Cambridge and points northwest, Belmont is close to Boston. But this bedroom community is not as sleepy as it once was; Belmont Center, Cushing and Waverly Squares have become magnets for upscale and unique independent shops, cafes and other services creating a lively, community atmosphere. Around downtown and the squares, tree-lined neighborhoods range from modest to very spacious single-family homes shifting to estate-style living in the northwest section of town. Just outside downtown is Mass Audubon’s Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary, a peaceful refuge that draws birders, walkers, and nature lovers year round to its evergreen forests and vernal pools.
