A school-oriented town with a distinctive residential and family-friendly vibe, Belmont is attractive to families. Hailed as one of the best places to raise a family, it also appeals to young professionals who commute to neighboring Boston or Cambridge. As well, the town is one of Massachusetts’ top-rated suburbs. 

There isn't much nightlife, but that's fine with most residents who enjoy Belmont's quiet way of life. Since it’s a luxurious area, the price of living is high. However, it's worth it for the excellent quality of life and friendly, involved community.
