I liked that it had a perfect location to easily get access to 95 and 93. I also liked that the community in Stoneham is pretty supportive of each other. Mostly all the kids play town soccer with each other, which is a good way of getting out into the community and meeting new people. Everyone is pretty nice in Stoneham, everyone lives average lives. Town day is one of the highlights of the town. Everyone gets together to celebrate the town in downtown Stoneham where there are usually booths set up that everyone can explore. Stoneham is also pretty close to Winchester hospital, so if anyone were to get hurt there is a great hospital nearby.

Honestly... Stoneham is one of the most boring places in Massachusetts. The high school sucks and lets students coast by with little to no effort. There is absolutely no night life in Stoneham, whatsoever. The latest place open is the run down Burger King on Main st. The only upside is the lack of violence and crime, but aside from that Stoneham is garbage.
Honest Tip: Stoneham is a very towny place so don't expect to feel welcome if you're not white or somehow connected to the moneymakers in town.
I have lived in Stoneham, MA most of my entire life. I attended Stoneham public schools and worked in Stoneham most of my career. It offers a comfortable living environment while still being centrally located. It is also easy to travel into Boston due to the variety of public transportation availability.
