I have recently just moved to Weymouth from a suburb of Buffalo, NY this past August. What I love about Weymouth is the cost of living compared to almost every other area in Boston. While the cost of living is still high, it is hundreds of dollars cheaper than neighboring towns. I love how centrally located the grocery stores are - Shaw's, Stop and Shop, and Walmart. The town also has several parks, trails, and waterfront areas which is ideal for nature lovers like myself and my dog.
Unfortunately, with it having one of the lowest costs of living, it has become over crowded. For it being such a large town, it does not offer many dining options for sit-down restaurants, which also is rather annoying to me. My biggest annoyance, however, is a law in town stating that one cannot pump their own gas. I am NOT a fan of this law at all - the gas attendants I have come across are rude, expect a tip from you, and do not even say thank you! I venture out of town for this exact reason.

Recently moved to Weymouth, absolutely love it. My wife and I bought our first home over the summer and couldn't be happier!
Weymouth is a nice town. I have grown up here since I was about 3 years old and am currently still residing there. It is very family friendly, it is a good town/city to have your children grow up in as long as they are involved in the community. One negative thing is that i feel that the parks and such need to be retouched up and more placed should be opened for the access of children and teenagers. We have a great summer program called Weymouth Recreation that really helps to bring the youth of the community together and allows them chances to make new friends and make wonderful memories. All in all Weymouth is a nice town and a good community.
