About Watertown Watertown is a city in the Greater Boston area of Massachusetts, just over 5 miles outside of the big city itself. Though it’s close to a major urban center, Watertown retains its more small community feel, making it a wonderful place to visit and experience the charms of New England.
Things to do in Watertown Watertown is primarily a residential community rather than a tourist destination, so it’s attractions are limited. It does have two museums, however. The Armenian Library and Museum of America is stationed in the city, which is home to one of the largest Armenian populations in the country. There is also The Plumbing Museum, which is exactly what it sounds like. You can see performances at one of the city’s two theaters: Arsenal Center for the Arts and the New Repertory Theatre. And, if you’re feeling energetic, venture to the Central Rock Gym to do some climbing or to Launch Trampoline Park. Because you’re close, you should also take the 20 minute drive over to Boston and explore the main tourist attractions of that city, including walking the three-mile Freedom Trail to see the city’s historic monuments, visiting the neighborhood of Beacon Hill, and taking in a game at Fenway Park.

History lovers can also visit nearby spots such as Plymouth, where the Pilgrims are famous for settling after journeying from England, and Concord, where literary figures such as Ralph Waldo Emerson and Bronson Alcott made their home.
