I have lived in 12 cities in 6 states and so far Tewksbury, MA is the worst place I have lived.

The cost of living is quite high for how little the town has to offer, the streets are in a perpetual state of disrepair despite much higher tax rates than other states I've lived in (where's the money going?) Main Street is littered with trash, abandoned buildings, vacant lots and empty store fronts. During my drive to the grocery store alone I pass over 20 vacant lots or abandoned buildings and stores, all on main street. Hard to justify the high rents and property values when businesses want nothing to do with this town.

Tewksbury isn't safe either, there are more registered sex offenders and documented rapes in Tewksbury than there are in neighboring towns of similar size like Dracut.

Traffic is awful as town's small and outdated streets and layout can't handle peak congestion, not to mention that the traffic lights can't be bothered to be synced.

Tewksbury is a beautiful loving town! There are many places to go out to eat, go outside, and have fun.
Have a lot of great memories here, but would like the town to be a bit more livelier in the future! Not to mention maybe a little cheaper to live in.
