Belmont is a very small and cute town. Most have lived there for their entire lives and and thrive on the traditions of the town. Everything is in walking distance, which is great excersize after going to the the family run diners and ice cream parlors. After moving in to the town, I soon experienced the close knit unity between the people. Once you get involved with town events and the people, Belmont can be a great place to live!
I love Belmont because you are able to experience the nature and rural-ness of towns like Concord and Lincoln, while also still being able to access the T and be just a short drive from the city. The town is only around 4 square miles so it's extremely walkable, and the houses are beautiful. However, the public school system is by far what makes Belmont a uniquely amazing town. If utilized correctly, the school system here could take you just as far as most private schools.
Belmont is just next door to Cambridge and Harvard Square, but has a small-town feeling with plenty of public parks and conservation land. Schools are excellent and the town is very "walkable."
