Newton may be a residential town, but it defies the stereotypes of suburban living. You don’t need a car to access Newton’s independent restaurants, bakeries, and bookshops.

Leaving this pastoral enclave is as simple as its charm—Downtown is a quick ride away on Boston’s commuter rail.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
