Billerica is a beautiful town to live in. Everyone is extremely friendly, and there are so many things to do. Whatever you need, you won't even have to leave the comfort of your own town. There are many schools, all with a great curriculum to ensure quality education. The neighborhoods are safe and full of families for a good experience. Billerica consists of people who are extremely proud to be from Billerica. The town has the most pride I've ever encountered. If you really want to get a taste, visit the Thanksgiving football game against our rivals, Chelmsford. I am happy and grateful to be from Billerica.
Billerica is a small town with a big city feel. For the most part everyone knows everyone depending on your involment in the town. The politics here are just like everywhere else and the school systems are perfect. I would recommend anyone trying to move closer to Boston, come check out Billerica!
