Moving from CT to MA. Husbands office will be in Brockton but he will be covering areas south and south west of Brockton and does not necessarily need to be in his office every day. We have family north of Boston. Trying to find a good and affordable middle ground between the two. Considering Hopkinton or Holliston..
Looking for a town that has good system, a lot of activities for kids and families ( we have three littles ones), a nice town center would be nice. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!!

Both good towns, good school systems but a little far from Brockton.

We've been in Holliston almost 5 years and love it (apart from the ever-rising taxes)! We love the school options (our oldest is in French Immersion kindergarten) and have been happy with the elementary school (no experience with the others yet). Most people are very friendly and welcoming and, during the Spring and Summer, there's usually something happening every weekend. This Saturday is the Spring Fest (2016 HBA SpringFest | Holliston Business Association). We've been very happy with our decision to move here.

We're currently trying to buy a home in Hopkinton. We are looking for a quieter home life compared to Framingham and a better school district. I've spent some time there so far. Town center is small, but nice/cute. We visited the outdoor Y, which has a lot of acreage, outdoor activities, pools, hiking trails. While we're not going to have immediate access to all the shopping and plethora of restaurants in Framingham/Natick (10 minutes vs 15-20 min) it will be nice to have the family be able to stretch out a bit.
