Massachusetts, U.S.A.
WATCH CITY
Welcome to Waltham, Massachusetts.
The city of Waltham is situated in Middlesex County and is home to around 60,000 people. The city was a major contributor to the American Industrial Revolution and the original home of the Boston Manufacturing Company. Today, Waltham is known as an epicenter for research and higher education, with prominent institutions like Brandeis University and Bentley University. Waltham is often nicknamed Watch City because of its association with watch manufacturers like the Waltham Watch Company. The factory opened for business in 1854 and was the first one to make watches on an assembly line. In 1876, Waltham Watch Company produced more than 35 million watches, clocks and instruments for well over a century, before it finally closed in 1957. Waltham is home to a diverse population, and residents here enjoy plenty of parks and trails. The Charles Riverwalk in downtown is a popular spot for fishing, jogging and biking, and Moody Street in downtown Waltham features abundant entertainment with an eclectic assortment of stores and dining places. Some of the establishments include The Gaff, Outer Limits, Gourmet Pottery and the Embassy Cinema. Moody Street offers a vibrant nightlife and easy access to the commuter rail. Apartments here are pretty cheap, hence lots of younger professionals have moved into the area recently. Moody Street is often referred to as Restaurant Row thanks to the many restaurants down here. The city doesn't lack culture either, and history buffs should definitely pay a visit to the celebrated Charles River Museum of Industry and the Waltham Watch Factory, as well as the historical destinations the Gore Place, the Robert Treat Paine Estate and the Lyman Estate. Art lovers may want to come here during the first week in November, when the Waltham Mills Artists Association features their annual art event. During this time, the 76 artists of the WMAA hold open doors to the public, who can explore works of every imaginable kind.
