Belmont has a handful of small squares with stores and restaurants. It offer easy public bus, train and T service to Boston. It is also very safe, with quick response to 911 calls. Lastly, Belmont has a very active senior center, that offers meals on wheels. Great town!

Belmont is a small town. It is famous for its schools. Families with school-age children are moving in. Rents and home prices are getting out of hands. Taxes are rising too. It pushes elderly people ( many of them living in this town for their entire lives) to sell their houses and move to less expensive towns.
star
It is age friendly because the a city pays attention to healthy activities for young and old. There are ptograns to learn new things. And to play games.
