We are planning to relocate to Natick and I work in Watertown. How bad is the commute (driving) ? I work regular hours -- 8 - 5.

It could be anywhere from 30 min to an hour. The traffic is crummy.

I live in Natick and commute all over the metro area. It generally takes me about 15 min to get from Rt-9/27 to 128 or 18 min to get from Rt-30/27 to 128. If you live closer to the Speen St. (exit 13) and can take the hwy, it only takes about 20 min to get to the Newton/Watertown (exit 17) plus the time you take driving the local roads to and from the Pike. Traffic always looks bad on the Pike, but it moves along fairly well especially if you just stay on the right lane and have a Fastlane pass.
