We are newer to the area. We selected it because of some of the area’s best schools, proximity to the city/airport, and the amazing properties. We feel secluded because of our bigger lot and how quiet it is, but we are a 15-minute walk to the town center.

We are really happy with our decision to join this community.

I've lived in Weston for my whole life. It is a nice, small town. There is a lot of trails in the town forests, playgrounds, and a good school system. The scenery is very beautiful and the town is preserved historically.
People who come to Weston stay in Weston unless it becomes to expensive. People tend to keep to themselves in my town, but my neighborhood has an annual barbecue. This is an extremely pet/family friendly town.
