Whether you’re looking for a new job, some new scenery, or better schools or the kids, there are plenty of incredible New England neighborhoods to explore – both near and far. In this blog, we’re going to share a few of our favorite areas around Boston, and what makes each of them so unique. Let’s dive into the best neighborhoods in 2022. Worcester Worcester is a vibrant, diverse, lively community located about an hour West of Boston. It was named #3 on the US News list of the “Safest Places to Live in America,” which is great news for families with kids or anyone concerned about security. Beyond being safe and scenic, Worcester also offers lots of exciting attractions. Visitors and residents alike will enjoy the cultural and recreational activities, including theater productions, live music, art exhibits, and more. The area is home to more than 60 city parks and a dizzying selection of restaurants, eateries, and food trucks. Charlestown Charlestown is known for its historic, stylish charm, and its proximity to downtown Boston. As Boston’s oldest neighborhood, Charlestown sits across the Charles River from downtown Boston and is just a hop, skip, and a jump on the Orange Line from everything the city center has to offer. This quaint little neighborhood is home to plenty of fun attractions, including the Bunker Hill Monument, townhouses built in the 1830s, and the oldest bar in the state of Massachusetts. MetroWest MetroWest is a group of cities just east of Worcester and west of Boston. It includes Ashland, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton, Natick, Sherborn, Southborough, Sudbury, and Wayland. This quaint assortment of communities is a great place to live, work, play, eat, and explore. Residents will enjoy proximity to the Danforth Art Museum at Framingham State University, Callahan State Park (which spans more than 820 acres), Hopkinton State Park, the American Heritage Museum, and more. People who want to live in the MetroWest area but work in Boston will enjoy a simple, 25-minute commute and some pretty scenery along the way. South Shore South Shore runs east from Boston toward Cape Cod, along the shores of Massachusetts Bay. This area is a mix of suburban towns, mid-sized cities, and rural towns. The South Shore area encompasses towns like Plymouth, Kingston, Braintree, Duxbury, and Marshfield. The area is also home to Curry College, Quincy College, and Bridgewater State University. Visitors and residents will enjoy the proximity to North River Wildlife Sanctuary, Old Scituate Light, and the Daniel Webster Wildlife Sanctuary. Old Greenwich Located in Connecticut, Greenwich is a quaint, waterside community that dates to 1641, when the first group of settlers arrived from Europe. Old Greenwich sits on a peninsula in the Long Island Sound, a truly classic New England town.
