I love it here. Such a quiet, quaint little town. I used to live in Sturbridge and it was always too busy and congested. In Brimfield, there is way less traffic and the houses are more spread out. You feel more connected with your neighbors as there are fewer and everyone is so friendly. It's like living out in the country, but the next towns over have almost everything you could need when running errands or weekly shopping.

There are only three "restaurants" in the area I live in, two pizza joints and a Italian restaurant. The Italian restaurant is great and definitely makes up for the lack of good places to eat. My favorite dishes from there are their New England clam chowder and their chicken broccoli alfredo. There are no bars or nightlife in then area.
In the area I live in most people have to commute a good amount of time to their jobs. The only jobs that MAY be open that are in a 20 minute radius of where you live are gas stations, postal offices, schools, some restaurants and few retail shops. Considering I want to pursue a future in the performing arts I really have no choice but to move once I finished college because of the lack of jobs I would have.
