Andover has a lot of local dining options and things to do! I would recommend getting a coffee at Cafe Nero, exploring shops downtown, and grabbing a bite to eat at La Rossa. The school system is constantly improving and on the rise.
Review Andover
Charming suburb of Boston with a compact downtown area. Lots of great restaurants to explore and many excellent schools for the kids!
Andover is a very nice town. There are a lot of big, beautiful houses, and even some of the smaller houses are very nice too. It's very pleasant and safe. It's not too urban and not too rural either. It's very expensive, but anyone can see why. There's literally not one bad thing about Andover, except that you probably just can't afford it.
