Hopkinton Massachusetts has just been named to the Money Magazines prestigious list of the best places to live in the US for 2009! Not only did Hopkinton make the list but they broke the top 20 coming in at #19.
The awards just continue to roll in for Hopkinton, as this latest award is fresh on the heels of Hopkinton High School making Newsweek Magazine top 500 Schools for 2009.
This is the 2nd consecutive year that Hopkinton has made Newsweek's list for bragging rights as one of the best school systems in the country. This year Hopkinton high school came in ranked 420 out of the top 1500 schools! Hopkinton also made Boston Magazines 50 best high schools in 2008.
Getting recognized by Money magazine is nothing to sneeze at as it is one of the most widely read financial publications. As a Realtor who has lived in Hopkinton my entire life and has sold Real Estate in the town for the last twenty three years, this will do nothing but enhance an already strong reputation.
Hopkinton is a destination town for many home buyers because of the terrific commuting location, awesome school system, and some of the best developments in the area.
Hopkinton is located at the "cross roads of New England" with 495 and the Mass Pike at our door step. The MBTA is also located just over the Hopkinton town line in Southboro.
Other considerations that make Hopkinton a great place to live include a town center that is not over commercialized. It is doubtful you will see a McDonalds in Hopkinton anytime soon:) There are also two large lakes known as Lake Maspenock and Lake Whitehall, as well as the popular Hopkinton State park for recreation.
I could go on and on about the many great attributes of the town...these are just a few. Although I would be remiss if I did not mention the fact that the Boston Marathon starts in Hopkinton.
