What Makes Sudbury a Great Town to Live In?
Sudbury is known for its excellent schools, proximity to Boston, and rural character. The real estate website Movoto ranked Sudbury as the safest places to live in Massachusetts. Sudbury was incorporated in 1639, so this year the town of Sudbury is celebrating its 375th anniversary. All year Sudbury will host special events to celebrate including a parade, a fair, a field day, a road race and more. Sudbury is home to Longfellow’s Wayside Inn, the oldest operating inn within the U.S. and the location for our Zip Trip live broadcast on June 20th. The Wayside Inn Grist Mill is the first working mill to be built as a museum. The Grist Mill currently produces 5–15 tons of flour per year which is used in the restaurant’s baked goods and is sold in the Inn Gift Shop. The Goodnow Library in Sudbury serves not only as the town’s borrowing library, but also as a cultural hub for children and adults alike. The Library hosts book clubs for teens, crafts and story time for preschool kids, and events such as moderated panels on the creativity process for writers.

We have lived in Sudbury 38 years. Our children grew up here. The population is growing and million dollar homes are abundant.
I like the mixed population of young and old and how active seniors are through the Sudbury Senior Center and various temples and other religious affiliations. It is a quiet town, nice shops and restaurants, good schools, friendly people, clean and lots to do.
My husband likes the rural character and its proximity to other towns and to Boston. There is a lot of culture here and history and orchestras, i.e. the Lincoln-Sudbury Civic Orchestra. We feel safe here and know many people which is a nice aspect.
We are close to Concord and its medical facilities, too.
