Great place to raise kids! Many family friendly neighborhoods and activities to kids. Outstanding school district.
Awesome, quaint New England Town with a strong community. This town offers many activities for both families and couples. The center of town is small, but has a beautiful library, several restaurants, a huge park that offers concerts in the summer and non-stop community activities all year long. Overall, a great place to live/visit!
