Charming suburb of Boston with a compact downtown area. Lots of great restaurants to explore and many excellent schools for the kids!
Review Andover
Having lived in Boston for most of my life I was scared to move to Andover, MA being 30 minutes away from Boston. Even though it is far away from the city (at least for me) it is really an amazing place to live. The people of Andover are extremely kind, the schools are amazing, and there is always something to do here. The town center is always full of people with shops that are warm, inviting, and unique.
Andover is a quiet, wealthy (mainly white) town with excellent elementary and middle school systems. The town is extremely safe and friendly.
