This town is very age friendly because it's a small town and everyone knows who's who, very friendly, caring, helpful in good and bad they all come together for help. They are very generous people the education is wonderful it's one of the best with School academy in Massachusetts. Transport is great the same as engagement in all kinds of way. I am so proud to be in this community and to raise my three kids around great people.

The green’s hardware staff are awesome with everyone in town— all ages. If you need an extra hand with something, they are quick to provide help getting your purchases to your car or will even make a delivery. I compare going to Green’s to going to Cheers— the place where everyone knows your name!

I’m a huge fan of the wellesley free library... a nice quiet place to read but also to run into people (of all ages!) and catch up.

Getting in shape at the Tolles Parsons center is a great deal: I pay only $40/year. Beat that!
