Small “Dry” College Town

Located just outside of Boston, Wellesley is a beautiful and charming town that’s both safe and walkable. There’s a brilliant library, great schools, and a relatively essy transport connections to Boston. The college in town is wonderful for taking walks, and has a greenhouse, and small observatory as well. The only thing that really sucks about Wellesley is the nonexistent nightlight. During summer months you would expect for times to be shifted by an hour or so. Nope, most of the town closes at 9:30. Although, the small college town offers a really nice atmosphere outside the city. Highly recommend making your way into the city if your want more than what “dry” edge Wellesley offers, but it’s a great place to live and raise a family. Overall the town is well kept, offers many educational centered experience from my time there, and is a nice departure from the compact-homestead of Boston. If your looking for a little more excitement, I would recommend looking elsewhere.
