Wellesley is a beautiful suburb located just outside of Boston. In spite of being home to the incredible Wellesley college, it feels in no way like a college town. This is both a good and bad thing. It's a small town, the people seem friendly, it feels incredibly safe no matter the time of a day, and everything is readily accessible. In spite of being just short drive outside of Boston, it really has a nice small-town atmosphere. However, everything closes early and it's a very "dry" town. Things are expensive and options are very limited if restricted to things within the town.
I lived here for four years in college. Great Boston suburb! It's very expensive to live in this area but if you can swing it, you will have very high quality of life.
The general area of Wellesley, MA is affluent. You see a lot of prosperous businesses all throughout town. Some people in this area come from a lot of money, while there are others who do not. There are busy parts near the town center; yet there are other quiet parts of Wellelsey including many parks and even an arboretum!
