Very, very pretty town with great bones and a wonderful core. The people are fantastic, with a bit of everything from a socioeconomic standpoint. Many young families in Nab, many very established families in the center and south of the town center, and everything in between. Lakes, beaches, apple orchards, parades, diverse restaurants, world-class athletic facilities (turf fields, The Millworks), and a huge theater following. Best of all, likely the most attractive mix of relative affordability vs. school district. It's one of the top performing school districts in the country from a testing perspective, and will continue it's rise to prominence with the ever-growing young family population.

I like how this is a quiet nice town that is safe and clean. The library is nice and quiet with a huge selection of books to choose from. There are a variety of restaurants like Bamboo, Five Guys, Burton’s Grill, Evviva Cucina, Paul’s Diner, Rangoli Grill, and Seoul Kitchen. Westford also has great summer get-together spots. A big one is Kimball’s Farm. They serve ice cream, food and have multiple fun attractions that are reasonably priced. Some of these attractions include a mini golf course, a driving range, batting cages, bumper cars, and even a zip line.
I like living in Westford because it is only 40-45 minutes away from Boston, there are numerous train stations in other towns nearby. Also, growing up here for 17+ years, I have seen many new updates in the town. For example, behind my house, there used to be just empty field but now it is booming with business ranging from stores to various restaurants. It is a place to connect with people. Also the public schools in Westford are high demand, they are stressful but they do prepare their students for success.
