Wenham is a very nice area, if you don't mind an overall white experience. Good schools, good police, and good community feel. There are lots of cute little shops and cafes at the train station. I have not lived here long, but the time I have lived here I have felt very welcome and at home. I feel like this would be a great place to settle down with a family -- very, very safe environment. Unfortunately, not a very diverse area; so if you are looking for this, you might need to look elsewhere. Otherwise I have no complaints – good neighborhood!
It's a great, quiet place to live. It's family-oriented and very safe. It is a bit pricey, but it's worth it if this is your kind of town. :) The schools are nearby and very academically inclined. There are many parks and small businesses as well!
I absolutely loved my experience in Wenham! It is a town very focused on community, and works very hard to support its members. It provides great athletic and arts opportunities through community theater and sports. It also has great public spaces, especially its public library. In addition to this, the houses are very nice, and everyone makes an effort to keep them so.
