Question by Marya: Only for Boston people?
Do you have an idea if Burlington, MA is a nice and safe place to settle in especially with children.I got to start a new job there very soon and i am wondering whether to live in burlington or near cities like malden or others, any advice please.
Answer by Holly Golightly
Burlington is nice, and safe. Good mall in town, wonderful medical center (my sons pediatrician is there), I am not so much a fan of Malden. Lexington is very nice as well, a little bit less congested, nice little town. They are all very nice areas. It depends on what you are looking for, do you like city life? Or more of a suburban setting? Bedford is good as well. If you cross over Reading, Lynnfield is VERY nice, in SOME spots, Lynn is not so good. Can you come a couple weeks BEFORE you move to look around? If not, the company you are working for must have an HR person that can give you tips as well. I just relocated here too (a little over a year ago) with a 2 year old, and I knew NOBODY! It was pretty scary. If you want to chat, email me. I am going to dig through my contacts to find you a realtor in that area if you like. Also, start calling on child care now, if you will be needing it. Go to www.childcarecircuit.org for free referrals, just be sure to check the refs of all the providers, the circuit does not check references. Good Luck!
