If you are not familiar with Melrose already, you should be! It is a classic New England town with tons of character and charm. I personally moved here almost 4 years ago with my Fiance, and we have every intention of living here for many years to come. With it's quaint, yet vibrant, downtown filled with unique boutiques, coffee shops, and amazing restaurants, it's hard not to fall in love. What about the commute, you ask? Melrose is home to Oak Grove station on the Orange line, and three, yes THREE, commuter rail stations. With so many options, it makes commuting to work a breeze. Perhaps my favorite part of Melrose, though, is its rich sense of community. With Main Street being the focal point of the city, you often see the same smiling faces getting their morning coffee, or shopping at the local supermarket. Next time you visit, strike up a conversation with a local and the sense of pride and happiness people have who live here will be apparent.
