A beautiful small town full of wonderful people. There is plenty to do, from apple picking to handmade sign painting. Hopkinton harbors a strong sense of community, as everyone seems to know everyone. The school district is also very good.

I live in the center of town, right next to the beautiful Hopkinton Town Library. Hopkinton has beautiful walking paths and is very safe. It has everything you need, gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants. Things that can't be found in town can be found in Concord, only 15 to 20 minutes away. It would be nice if there were more retail stores downtown, but the town is putting in new efforts to draw in business, and has been successful.
A very quiet town with little diversity. The community is very close-nit and very welcoming. The scenery is beautiful and becomes breathtaking in the fall. However, there isn't much to do besides sightseeing.
