Holbrook is the best kept secret on the South Shore. Small town only 16 miles South of Boston. Everyone knows everyone. Two Dublin Donuts And 9 pizza shops! Schools are ok, but hopefully will improve now that wechaveca brand neecschool opening this September! Public transportation is decent. Bus will take you to the subway. Very accessible!

I really love Holbrook, its small so you know everyone you see and you can count on those people since you see them so much. Also, it has multiple industries and great pizza places. Overall, the community is what makes this small town great. The only thing I would change is that I wish it had a grocery store.
I have lived in Holbrook my whole life, and there really isn't much to do here. The people of Holbrook are generally friendly, but that is about it. There isn't anything to do in Holbrook; there are no movie theaters, no malls, no youth centers, or restaurants. We don't even have a grocery store. We do have about 5 different pizza places, and even more places of worship. One good thing about Holbrook is that it is in the middle of 6 other towns, so no matter where you're going you will usually only be about a 15 minute drive away.
