What I like about Everett would have to be that everything is close to everything else. There's hair salons, markets, restaurants, and transportation just about everywhere which makes it super convenient and you won't need a car to move from place to place. Their public schools are great here, there's lots of diversity and lots of people as well. It's very comforting and homey I've realized when I'm not home from college. A place where you make long lasting friends, neighbors, and memories!

Everett was honestly a town full of light and good memories. I grew up their and I wouldn't ask for anything better than Everett. It was a place that was close to school and somewhere I felt safe walking around and having fun at all time and enjoy myself. We might be a small town but we were a family of hardworking people and never give up on anything. When we vote, we vote for best and most of all be kind to one another. I wouldn't change anything about Everett because if it wasn't for this town I wouldn't be who I am today. So thank you Everett for everything.
I've been living in Everett Massachusetts for about two years now. Even though Everett is a small city, the people there are very nice and open. The schools in Everett are very safe and have a lot of space for the students. My high school has over 2,000 students and because of that I'm able to meet new people everyday. The neighborhood is also very safe. People feel safe to walk around day or night and it's very rare that you hear about a crime happening there. Overall Everett is a great city to live in filled with diversity and friendly residents.
