We're looking at the possibility of relocating to MA/NH coast, as it seems that it meets many of the criteria we are looking for. Although I grew up in CT, I haven't spent too much time in MA and am not familiar with many areas.

Looking for:
- Solid school districts (a huge reason why we're looking in MA), seems like many towns fit this criteria
- Near-ish to the coast, particularly surfing and kiteboarding locations
- Some walkable options would be nice (coffee shops, playgrounds, etc).
- Don't have kids yet, so a semi-social town where people are out and about more would be nice
- 3 BR house for less than $600/$650K
- Outdoor activities within reach, some decent trails in town would be very nice
- We shouldn't have to focus too much on commute, so not a big issue for us (but within reasonable reach of Boston/Providence for flights, day trips, etc.)

We're heading up next month to check out a few places, so if anyone has specific suggestions that'd be super helpful!

I’m thinking Beverly since it’s right on the coast. Also Newburyport but that’s further north closer to the NH border
