Attleboro Reviews

105 reviews
All Categories
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.
Attleboro is a city in Bristol County, Massachusetts, United States. It was once known as "The Jewelry Capital of the World" for its many jewelry manufacturers. According to the 2010 census, Attleboro had a population of 43,593 in 2010.

What I like about Attleboro is its transportation facilities options. The city is home to two MBTA commuter rail stations: one in the downtown area and the other in the South Attleboro district, near the Rhode Island border. Attleboro and Taunton are both served by the Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority, or GATRA, which provides bus transit between the two cities and the surrounding regions.

As for education in the city, the elementary and middle school systems are great. However, the high school guidance counselors tend not to care about their students. High school cared much more about their athletics not on helping their students to be succeed to enter better colleges. Hope this changes for better over the upcoming years.
