Arlington is the New Somerville as quoted by the Boston Magazine in its latest Top Places to Live in 2019. It is no longer a sleepy suburb, and it gets trendier by the day, attracting artistes but also young professionals.
Arlington has a few neighborhoods all with different personalities. East Arlington is a choice for its walkability to shops, restaurants and transportation, and most likely the most urban neighborhood of all. Jason Heights offer stately classic Victorian Homes, and many enjoy exceptional view over Boston. Arlington Heights offer a little something for everyone. And Morning Side is probably one of the most affluent neighborhoods with larger property lots.
Commuting is now as easy as cruising down the Minuteman Bikeway all the way to Alewife, or use the revamped bike lanes, park at Alewife and jump on the T, or simply drive to Boston. It is only a 25 minute drive.
An Urban Suburban feel, this is Arlington MA.
