High-quality public school system that is constantly improving. Commute to Boston is very reasonable and seamless. Seeing investment in the downtown with new luxury housing, retail, restaurants which will only increase revenue and investment in the overall community. Town on the rise as a result of the premier surrounding towns and accessibility to Boston and the highway.
