Billerica Reviews

40 reviews
All Categories
I am a graduating Senior that has excelled academically, athletically and socially.
The only thing I wish the Town of Billerica, MA did differently was promote itself in a better light outside the community.
Billerica is a hard working community that is very family orientated. The people support the youth in all aspects, but can't figure out how to get out of the way to allow them to succeed on their own.
In any area, there are desirable and undesirable attributes, people and opinions. I have chosen to be with people who have similar interests and abilities as myself. I am relatively intelligent, college bound and consider myself to be a good and concerned citizen of my community. I have chosen I similar friends and we are all going off to competitive colleges in a variety of academic areas. I think. My town is considered blue collar historically, but the up and coming generations are not.
Living in Billerica has changed my life for the better. I originally come from Lynn which runs rampant with violence . I was forced to live in fear of being gunned down at every moment. but 3 years ago I came to Billerica with my dad. Ever since my life has been amazing. Billerica is a peaceful place , with plenty of things to do. Ive met so many great people and made so many friends. Billerica is truly a place to call home if you re looking to get away from the city
