I love living in Sharon. No where in Mass can you find a more diverse and educated populated that's actually safe and quiet. The people here embrace and appreciate each others' the cultural differences . There are lots of open spaces, trails and conservation lands. While there's close to zero commerce and property taxes are outrageous, the public schools are top notch and you can get everything you need within a 5 min drive. Wards berry farm, Audubon Moosehill and the Massapoag Lake are only some of the highlights. The real gem of Sharon are the people. I love my neighbors.
