Brookline is a welcoming community just west of Boston’s city limits. Surrounded by nature preserves and parks, the town offers myriad opportunities to enjoy the outdoors with family and friends. Residents are known for their dedication to building a strong, cross-generational community, making Brookline a place where people of all ages and backgrounds enjoy the charm and culture the town has to offer. The high quality of life means those who settle in Brookline are likely to stay for many years to come. With four multi-acre nature sanctuaries and miles of walking and jogging paths, Brookline residents revel in the natural world. They make a point to swing by the Thursday farmer’s market and snag a crisp head of lettuce grown on Brookline’s own hydroponic farm. Connections to neighbors come naturally too, whether that takes the form of striking up a conversation over a strong cup of coffee at Café Fixe, suggesting a good read while in line at Brookline Booksmith, sharing a bowl of homemade pasta at Pomodoro, or toasting a craft brew at Washington Square Tavern.
