It is a very safe, quiet town. However, there are very few things to do. Excellent school systems, sports teams, and extracurricular activities for school-aged children.

Beautiful suburban town. Very small and caring community with great schools and incredibly low crime rate. It's a bit far from Boston, but if you don't mind the commute, this is a great place to live.
I've lived 14 out of my 16 years of life here, I love everything around here. The only downside to living in some parts of Boxbourgh, is that it is isolated. We also hardly have sidewalks.
