slides: Central MA Top Ten Best Communities

Friday, June 29, 2012


GoLocalWorcester has crunched the numbers and reviewed all the data that affects what makes for a great community.  We've looked at school performance, housing affordability, restaurants, museums and crime statistics, and weighed all the numbers, and we've found out which communities are the Best Communities in Central Mass and the Best Communities in Massachusetts.

Central Mass' Top Ten Best Communities list is led by Worcester.  With top scores for arts and culture, as well as for its numerous choices for restaurants, Worcester has earned its top spot.  But which Central Mass towns make the Top Ten?  

TopTen Towns are safe, with good schools, and have some cultural offerings as well as at least a few restaurants to choose from.  Most of them made the top ten in more than one of the individual metrics.  

Is your town here? If not, do you think it should have been?
