I love living in Sherborn Massachusetts, it was an awesome place to grow up! The small town makes for a tight-knit, inclusive community. The cute New England Town only has a few places, but that is all Sherborn needs to continue to prosper. The town pond, Farm Pond, is perfect for the summer. You can do swim lessons or sailing lessons and it is a great place to cool off! The Dover-Sherborn school system is one of the best in Massachusetts and it is a great place for kids to prosper!

Lovely small town but the people are educated and not wasting time gossiping. They also raise kids who take education seriously in our #1 ranked school system. Beautiful trails where you could go on hikesand snow shoeing and forget that you're only 18miles from downtown Boston. During off-hours (I have a flexible job), I could make it to Boston and Cambridge in 40mins. There is a lot of open space (1-2 acre zoning) so we help forestall climate change. Pristine Farm Pond is the cleanest body of water in the state. When we want restaurants and shops, Wellesley center and Natick Mall are only 15mins away. Great Market Basket supermarket 10 mins away in Ashland. Mass Pike exit 13 is only 15mins away when I take the route through Framingham.
I live here and love it here! It's the best town to be if you like the outdoors and like having great neighbors. The open spaces that the town tries to maintain is one of the best things about the town. The community is great! The need for wells and the open spaces make it imperative that the town uses less salt during winter. Slow down there! We have the luxury of having all the stores over on route 9, a ten minute drive, without having to live next to them. No public transportation like any suburb of boston, so car is a necessary. Farm pond brings its own charm to the place. Everyone here is environment conscious and do everything possible to be green. Overall the best town for families and I wouldn't live anywhere else!
