The small, usually quiet, Boston suburb of Watertown was the center of national attention this past week during the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombers. While people watched snipers on top of mom and pop shops and reporters standing outside of blue-collar homes, the US got a brief glimpse into this community of 30,000 that has been around since 1630.
I wonder if more people will visit this area when coming to Boston because of its new found notoriety. As a former resident, here are some of my favorite things about Watertown. Oh, and the people who live there are pretty good too.
