My family and I are considering relocating to the New England area; we've vacationed in Mass for years and really love the area, but are a bit overwhelmed when thinking about possibly relocating. Can anyone suggest cities/towns we might be interested in checking out? Our family consists of: myself and my husband, both in our early 30's, no children yet but we hope to have a family eventually, my sister who is in her mid-20's, and my Dad, who is retired. My husband works in the medical field as a radiology tech and my sister and I run a daycare/preschool in Ohio currently and hope to open another wherever we move. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

I suggest Arlington, which is a town next to Cambridge and on the bus line to Cambridge/Boston, and a subway line for the same. Arlington is a quiet, family oriented town that also has a lot of seniors. A very nice community, but very very close to opportunities and activities, both job and recreational. Car dependence depends on where you want to go, but you'd be far less dependent than you'd be on some town in the middle of the state or such. It sounds like you have multi-generational needs (or will have them) and it seems it'd be best to live somewhere that offers something to everyone's place in life.
Best wishes in your search.

Burlington is also nice, that's where Lahey Clinic is in case your husband consider's applying there for work. It's a huge hospital right next to the mall.
