Awesome, thanks so much for the insider info all! Much appreciated. If you think of anything else that I should consider or just generally know about the region, please post. Thanks again.

I am in Boston on spring break w family for the week in from Montreal. Apart from public transit confusion, Boston is as praiseworthy as it gets. A beautiful historic city, a true heavyweight in cultural amenities. It's way up there. Love it.

I'd take a look at Davis Square.

Waltham itself actually has a little bit of a nightlife scene on Moody Street. You could easily save a bit of money as 3k is alot for that area. However Davis Square is better and the commute wouldn't be too bad to Waltham.

I love Davis so far. And we just got a bFresh (Bfresh?) market literally 2 weeks ago! I haven't had much opportunity to try out the local places, but City Liquors did its Saturday wine-tasting which had a good 40 or 50 people and tons of wine to try. I walked out with too many bottles...

Hooray for Davis!

BUT, it's relatively safe, which is important to most.

Counter! Still costs too much though.

Cambridge for sure, especially if close proximity to Waltham is a must. Central or Inman squares. Harvard Square is nice too, but of course you'll be around more college students. Davis square (Somerville) is decent, not as much night life. You really can't go wrong with either of them though. All are safe areas as well. Your $3k per month budget wouldn't be an issue in either of them.

There's a reason the term "Camberville" exists. Davis Square and West Somerville have a similar vibe to Cambridge. (The border is about a block away on Orchard St). There is plenty of nightlife there. Anyone saying otherwise hasn't walked thru on a Saturday night. And you can easily take the Red Line to Cambridge or into Boston from there if you want to mix it up.
