10 Best Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Waltham, Massachusetts - Updated 2023


Massachusetts is home to great American cities that played a big role in the country’s history. One of those cities is Waltham, which played a role during the American Industrial Revolution. The city is home to one of the earliest labor movements in America. Besides, it earned the nickname “watch city” because of the watch industry’s contribution to the city’s economy. Waltman Watch Company was the first to assemble watches on assembly lines, making these beloved pieces until 1957. Today, the city is home to estates built by philanthropists and millionaires like Gore Place. Plus, there are a number of tourist attractions within the city. Read below for the list of best Airbnb vacation rentals in Waltham, Massachusetts.
