Tewksbury is a relatively safe and quiet town. A vast majority of the residents here are white and are either families with small and/or teenage children or senior citizens.
Activities and events in the town are mainly focused on those demographics with kids library events, memorial day parades, a playground with several little leagues and soccer fields, and kids and Beatles tribute bands stopping by for concerts. For people aged 12 - 35 there's not really much for enjoyment other than Wamesit Lanes and the Escapology that just opened up. You'll have to go to Lowell next door or Boston if you want to experience diversity and culture. You need a car to get around as everything is spread out and there are few sidewalks in this town. Most restaurants are chains with a few independent gems.
I personally wouldn’t raise kids here because of the lack of diversity, sidewalks and activities to do for older kids but if you need a safe and quiet place to live, Tewksbury is a good choice.
I've lived in this town 10 years now. It's accessibility to major highways makes it a desirable place to live. Still has the small town feel with open land, activities for families, and an amazing school system complete with the most caring teachers who have gone above and beyond for their students. I've chosen to raise my family here and wouldn't want to be anywhere else!
