Newton, Massachusetts is a nice place to live, in fact it's among the nicest according to a 2010 issue of Money Magazine, which listed the community as the “#3 Best Place to Live in America.” Technically a city (population 85,000+), Newton has much more of a suburban feel with its 13 distinct “villages” brimming with old New England charms.
Housing prices in this decidedly affluent area are above the statewide norm, with an average 3-bedroom home going for about $600,000. But the price tags are reasonable if you want to live in a picturesque, walkable city/suburb that is seven miles from downtown Boston and accessible by bus, rail or subway.
Newton is home to six institutes of higher education including the prestigious Boston College and Boston College Law School. Its public schools are rated among the tops in the state, and its two high schools were recently ranked #5 and 6 in the Commonwealth by Boston Magazine.
If you like classical music, Newton has two symphony orchestras – the New Philharmonia Orchestra of Massachusetts and the Newton Symphony Orchestra, an ensemble of 70 volunteer musicians and featured soloists from around the world.
Newton is the site of the challenging “heartbreak hill” of the Patriot’s Day Marathon, the headquarters of NECN, and the home of Newton Wellesley Hospital, a nationally acclaimed medical center.
And let us not forget the Fig Newton cookie, which was named for the Massachusetts city and celebrated its 100th anniversary there in 1991.
