Great place to live! Safe, great people, great towns around like, Burlington, Bedford, Wilmington and Tewksbury. Highly recommend.
I moved to Billerica 20 years ago at the age of 23. I bought my first home at a time when Billerica was compared to Lowell. In the last 20 years, Billerica has grown so much. The public schools have received much-needed attention. A brand new elementary school and high school have been built, both of which my children have and will attend. The center of Billerica has received a much-needed facelift. I look forward to seeing what the next 20 years have in store for the Town of Billerica.
