Acton is an upscale suburb northwest of Boston, a quaint and charming New England hamlet if ever there was one. The town’s numerous large parks offer gorgeous scenery and spacious grounds for residents to get outdoors and play (sledding at NARA Park in the winter can’t be beat). The region is rich with history (particularly in nearby Concord) and museums abound, making it an ideal rental location for folks with scholarly interests.

The MBTA station on the south side of town connects Acton with the rest of the Boston metropolitan area, and downtown Boston is only about 45 minutes away by car. The local schools receive terrific ratings, and the crime rate is among the lowest in Massachusetts, making Acton one of the most family-friendly environments around.
