Very regular small town, not much to it, but it's home. I left the public schools because they were too tiny and not a lot of opportunity or diversity. Very 'towny" vibe. Great location, pretty houses, near highways, very cozy.

West Boylston is a suburban town outside of urban Worcester with a small and pretty good public school system. The access to highways and to greater Boston is good. Overall small town values relatively quiet.
The malls in my area are excellent! Natik Mall is known as one of the best malls in New England, with over 100 stores and restaurants from bargin to luxury brands.
