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.

Attleboro is a small city in Massachusetts that has that small town feel. Located near major metropolitan areas like Providence and Boston, there are many amenities to reach those cities. One of the best aspects of Attleboro is its community. There are many families from many generations all reside in the city creating a unique cultural experience. One of the major issues as of late has been the decline of the public school system. With children of my own currently enrolled in elementary and middle public school, I can see a drastic difference from just a few years ago. Getting the school back up to par with the rest of the local towns would be great. Education is the backbone of any community and I would hate to see Attleboro slip into sub-standard living.
I grew up in Attleboro, so it will always be my home. It's a historical place, and is everyone basically knows everyone. I used to walk everywhere, as everything is close in proximity. I enjoy the pride that comes from Attleboro, the most. Blue Pride!
