A nice, quiet town with almost no crime at all. Many people only come for the school, though, because there is very little to this town beyond the high school. A lot of good restaurants, but nothing in the realm of entertainment; not even a movie theatre. I often find myself with nothing to do on the weekends and end up not leaving my house.
However, there is a lot of historical stuff here. It is where Captain Isaac Davis, the first officer killed in the Revolution, is from. There are many more resources in the library and town hall. Acton is also a great place to check out, support, or start up a small business. Nearly every store or restaurant is unique and independently owned, so a young entrepreneur would find themselves at home.
