Georgetown is a quiet little town, filled with history and friendly people. As small as it may be, there is a lot of things to do. Check out "The Spot" located right downtown and grab a great drink and bite to eat with the locals. See the Legion park with a great new jungle gym, and cool off at the small beach located right near downtown! Everyone you meet is friendly and welcoming.

Georgetown is a great small town north of Boston by about 20 miles. It has a great community and great neighborhoods, as well as very good schools. The town center has all the basic necessities, a few gas stations, lots of pizza places, a couple of good restaurants and bars, some consignment shops, antique shops, local artisan stores and hobby shops. There are a few gym options, such as a small personal trainer/group studio, a spin studio and yoga studio right
Very welcoming and safe town. Lots of communication within the town, on social media and through neighbors.
