Watertown has a superb location, similar to Newton but without any portion south of the Mass Turnpike. It is very close to the Mass Pike, as well as Soldiers Field Rd and Boston itself though any transit down Arsenal Street will take a while due to the lights and businesses along the route. Watertown consists of four square miles, but this small city is packed with malls, stores, restaurants and even frontage along the Charles River. In addition to plenty of strip malls, Watertown has numerous car dealerships and the greatest concentration of ceramic tile stores in the area. Old buildings have been converted to condos, creating a semi-urban living environment and recently, new trendy cube-style apartment complexes have been popping up all over town.
Watertown's is an up and coming suburb, with many urban draws like restaurants and stores, contemporary new apartment options (some overlooking the Charles river) and a substantial foundation of hard working families. Watertown does not have the greatest schools, but it does have a unique mix of culture and location that makes it a good choice for many families and its schools are decidedly better than neighboring Waltham. Currently Watertown roads are in very bad condition, sporting some of the worst accumulations of death trap potholes in the area.
