Sudbury is an excellent family town and the people are very grounded, unlike Concord, Wayland, Weston. It is very safe, conveniently located to major routes into Boston and several shopping centers. The schools are very high quality and the team sports scene has regularly been aming some of the most competitive in the state. Contrary to the main review, there are many more excellent restaurants started by well-known chefs from Boston than any of the surrounding towns. Lastly, Despite all the aforementioned positive attributes, the property values are more affordable than Wellesley, Weston, Wayland, Lincoln, Concord, and Lexington.

My experience with Sudbury has been that the town serves as a sort of bubble. Despite being very safe, with a highly rated education system, it leaves children wanting for greater cultural and racial diversity. Sudbury fosters the class and racial tension that the country has seen rise lately.
Sudbury is one of the prettiest areas in greater Boston with immense history, lush open green spaces, and many conveniences for daily living. Sudbury has been ranked as the safest town in MA! The populous is well educated, friendly, and involved in the community. The schools are outstanding. The majority of kids and parents are very much down to earth. We are very fortunate to call Sudbury home.
