I lived here all my life and I've never really been interested in living anywhere else. The community is diverse and kind. They hold many events ranging from light and fun to deep and meaningful. They hold an annual Christmas event for kids and adults alike, and on the other hand they hold a Veteran's Day memorial where they acknowledge Woburn veteran who have passed during the year. Everyone is very close and know each other. There's two things I think I would change about Woburn. The first is that there is an extreme focus on student athletes. While I do not believe there is a problem with our student athletes as they deserve recognition, it feels like the other students are pushed aside. The other thing I would change is I would add more areas for recreation and fun. We have a movie theater, a bowling alley, a not-so-great mall and that's about it. I would add more recreational ares so kids and teens wouldn't have to travel so far to have a good time.

It’s a great blue collar town outside of Boston. I like that it is close enough to Boston to commute to but also because it’s near everything such as local shops, restaurants, grocery stores; including multiple locations that are easy to get to. Woburn also has many parks and trails to go for walks with your dog or if you like to run or bike outdoors. I wish Woburns public library was easier to find and was closer to the center of town.
Love it here! Great food and great places to take a run! Great places for families, or adults working closer to the city.
