Located 5 miles outside of the city, Medford is a Boston suburb where accents are thick and community pride runs deep. Countless families have called Medford home for generations, and their long-term town dedication lends the neighborhood a certain old-school charm. Typified by 17th century churches, aging New England homes, and manicured parks, Medford is a fiercely spirited suburb with plenty of bragging rights—did we mention the inventor of the roller skate lived here?See places to stay Save this neighborhood
Strong Community Spirit In Boston's Northern Suburb
West Medford is a nice neighborhood for walking--with lots of green space and a lake just down the street (great for a swim in the summer, and nice for a brisk walk in winter). You will find just about all you need within walking distance: banks, post office, dry cleaner, drugstore, coffee shops, pizza and sandwich places."
Serene Suburban Spaces
