Attleboro Reviews

Attleboro is a medium sized suburb in Massachusetts about 5 minutes from the RI border. It's a historic town with a mixed work force of blue and white collar workers alike. It's a very affordable town to live in, and many residents live here to commute up to Boston for work. We have a commuter rail right in the heart of the city, making public transportation easy to access. There's lots of restaurants and local shops in the center of town, many that have been around for decades. Our restaurants here boast delicious yet affordable fare and there is a cuisine for everyone, from Italian to Mexican, Japanese to Latin American. I love Attleboro because it's a quiet, safe town and it's got everything I need here! Restaurants, local shopping, big box store shopping , doctors, dentists, a local hospital, and the commuter rail! I've lived here for 4 years, previously I was a Rhode Islander, born and raised, but Massachusetts has my heart, and Attleboro is my home.
Review Attleboro
My husband and I both grew up in North Attleboro. After buying a home in Attleboro in 2006 I was worried about raising a family here, but 11 years and 3 kids later I have to say I absolutely love this city! Mayor Dumas has done a phenomenal job restoring our parks and rec department, our teachers and schools are superb, the roads and infrastructure are well maintained, there are so many wonderful restaurants and family activities, and so many of the residents have become some of our closest friends. I can't say enough wonderful things about this city and I look forward to many more happy years here.
The city accommodates affordable living compared to nearby areas. There are plenty of community activities that promote diversity and culture. Capron Park, the Capron Zoo, and the Attleboro library are excellent, free/low-cost activities for kids to enjoy, as well. I love living in this town!
