I wouldn't really say that Millis is excellent per se, but I believe it could use a lot of work. For one, there isn't much except good restaurants and a bowling area, and although the education everyone gets is nice, the people themselves are not very diverse and even a bit boring for me. There could be more, but it's in the suburbs, so I honestly don't expect much. But I guess it's still home, right?

Super small town with a great school system. Easy to get to the train if you work in Boston. Close to Dean College if you go there. Also close to attractions like Gillette stadium, Wrentham outlets, etc.
Millis is a very nice town. It is easy to get from the major highways, has everything you need in town and is extremely clean and friendly. It is a great place to raise a family or live when city life is no longer of interest.
