What you'll do

We will meet in front of Waltham City Hall, and begin our tour there. From there we will walk through the park, past the Boston Manufacturing Co. and continue across the bridge and down Moody street. We will walk the length of Moody Street, learning about Waltham's history and historical business owners on the way. Visitors may stop in a shop for a moment, or make notes of places to visit later, as this is one of the main shopping and restaurant areas. At the end of Moody St., we will turn down Crescent Street and walk past the old Watch Factory. Crossing the Charles River for a second time, we will follow Prospect St. back to Main St. and Banks Square. The tour will conclude back by City Hall and is about a 3.5 mile walk. There will be many opportunities for beautiful photographs, so bring your cameras!

Rachel

I have been traveling the world for as long as I can remember and the one thing my mother taught me.....always find a local to show you around. I've been living and working in Waltham for almost ten years and I have gotten to know it very well. There's an amazing amount of history and culture in this city and I want to share it with people who travel like I do. When I am traveling, I love to find out of the way places to see, in addition to the big name sites that people know and love. Waltham is a great city, right outside of Boston, with it's own rich story to share with visitors.

Where you'll be

We will be walking a loop through the old town center of Waltham, down through Banks Square, around to the South Side, then up Moody St, touching on the border of the Chemistry neighborhood. There will be many amazing photography opportunities, as this is a city that historically loves both nature and industry, which is why they hold the Steam Punk festival here. Historical sites, museums, parks, and art galleries will be included on our tour.

More tips

I am not providing entrance into any museums or attractions, but I hope that guests finish my tour with a better understanding of Waltham and a list of places to investigate further in this great city
