Very pretentious, new-rich and toxic place. We were fooled by the idyllic imagery of the town when we relocated from out of state (CA) within a rushed time period. We hoped for a well connected community with friendly people to raise our family. The reality....Majority (not all) of residents are rude, egocentric elites.... 'racing through stop signs' (rules don't apply to me..'don't you know who I AM'?? attitudes), outsourcing everything, including their kids raised by nannies and staff. 99% of kids shipped off to 'all summer' camps/ Ghost town during Summer/Holidays Don't expect to know or ever interact with neighbors unless it involves a recommendation for service staff or a complaint. We've learned that not all of the North Shore villages are this way, thank goodness for them! The one thing these "haves" DON"T seem to "have" is manners, kindness, gratitude or joy. If you are seeking neighbors with these attributes, we suggest you try a different town.

Great community....one of the best in country! Safe, preety and great to raise a family. The Best schools in country!
Health and fitness opportunities are abundant in my area. Healthcare in the north shore rocks! I prefer to stay active by swimming (there's a couple private pools in the area), and there's some excellent cross-country running terrain too.
