Winters here are a mess, but moving to New England automatically signs you up for that. We frequently have nor'easters and blizzards during the winter months. Otherwise, the spring, summer, and fall are beautiful!
Review Brentwood
We have an excellent school system!! Taxes are high, but the services they pay for are worth the expense. The fire station is near the center of town. They are volunteer so sometimes response is somewhat slow. One of our state reps is fabulous, the other three are okay. Our governor is very reliable and supports and cares about our state.
There are several gyms in nearby towns. The nearest hospital isn't the best, but there are several others within 30 mins that are of excellent quality. Many people walk here, there are many back roads that are great for walking and jogging.
