Framingham is a suburb that is located approximately 20 miles West of Boston. It recently became a City in 2018. It has a population of 72,000 people and its land area is 22 square miles. It is a diverse community and has an urban and suburban mix that offers a huge selection of restaurants and shopping which is along Route 9 known as the "Golden-Mile". It is famous for the Framingham Heart Study and has many major employers here. The public schools are rated above average! The MWRTA bus system is a great asset to the town for people of all ages as it travels many routes bringing people door-to-door to do such things as errands, doctor appointments, and travels to surrounding communities and also links to the Green Line in Newton. Metrowest Medical Center is located downtown and is an excellent healthcare provider and teaching hospital.
