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.
Quaint little town which has easy access to bostin and Worcester and has everything you need from as big city in a small town
