Along Middlesex County one will come across the beautiful suburb of Boston known as Belmont. Located right across the Charles River from the Hub, Belmont’s population is just around 25,000 as of the 2010 Census.
Primarily a residential suburb, Belmont has seen an impressive level of growth ever since the 1950s. One of the more desirable areas of the town is known as the Belmont Hill neighborhood, where more highly priced real estate can be found in more densely settled, low-lying areas around the Hill.
Belmont is backed by the Belmont Public School system where there are four elementary schools, the Winthrop L. Chenery Middle School, and the Belmont High School. Furthermore, there is also the Belmont Hill School, a private, non-sectarian high school, and Belmont Day School, a private Pk-8 school.
A large amount of MBTA bus routes serve Belmont directly, and there are also options such as Route 60 or Pleasant Street, Route 2, and others that allow individuals the convenience of getting in and around Belmont with breeze.
With a strong railroad history, other things to learn about and see in Belmont include the Edwin O. Reischauer Memorial House, Redtop, and the Boston Massachusetts Temple of the LDS Church.
