If you want peace and quiet, unbelievably grounded and friendly people around you, clean air and country an excellent A+ school system Sudbury is the place to be. I’m not pumping this town either, I’m telling you my opinion from painful town hunting experience. Being from Newton we had high standards for our next move. Newton is an exceptional town in itself. But we wanted to move to someplace with more land for our kids to let loose and have more fun outside without much worry. Newton city just does not afford that type of comparison to more bucolic settings. So we shopped for years looking into Dover, Sherborn, Weston, Concord, Carisle etc. Granted, we don’t ever buy real estate based on the IN crowd place to be, rather, we be buy based on risk and metrics. We could easily see Sudbury value outpacing many other towns in the future and for the simple reason of just looking at the map, Location, Location, Location.

Of the lot, Wayland, Weston, Sudbury, Lincoln, Concord and Carlisle- Sudbury is my choice because the people there are simply super nice. Everyone knows it's a gorgeous town with a fine school system but the people really make it unreal. You talk to each other like you have known them all your life. It's a sense of trust and respect that you just can't find in too many other towns. Really unique.
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.
