My family and I have lived in Weston for six years. Here're some of the town's best features: the quality of the public school system; the town's forests, trails and scenic roads; its robust public library and recreation program; the town's its commitment to historic preservation; its proximity to Boston and major transportation routes; the lack of commercial overdevelopment; regular town events at the common; the generosity of its residents; and timely snow removal on key roads.

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.
