5 Reasons to Nest in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts

5 Reasons to Nest in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts

Shrewsbury Massachusetts is a gem of Central Massachusetts. Sure, one could argue that Southgate at Shrewsbury may be a little bias—after all, we’re celebrating 25 years as a proud member of the Shrewsbury community this year!—but, on close examination there are several strong, objective reasons why Shrewsbury is a great place to live.

For starters, Shrewsbury is a hop, skip and a jump away from Worcester, the hub of Central Massachusetts and home to many well-respected cultural attractions, including the Hanover Theater, Mechanics Hall and Tuckerman Hall, the home of the Massachusetts Symphony Orchestra. In addition, Worcester is home to many well-known colleges and universities, as well as innovative medical facilities.

It’s also a short drive—about 45 minutes—from other major cosmopolitan cities, namely Boston and Providence. Getting to the quaint New England shorelines of Rhode Island, parts of Cape Cod, Massachusetts’ North and Shore Shores requires a relatively short drive, too.

Shrewsbury is a hub of activity itself, with a diverse array of commercial businesses, including many great local restaurants, historical sites, such as the Gen. Artemis Ward House Museum, which is managed by the President and Fellows of Harvard College. Also, it’s a town where residents take pride in ownership. Take a stroll down the tree-lined Colonial Main Street and this is clearly evident.

Recently, Shrewsbury was named a “Best Place to Live” by Money Magazine. The town, which ranked an impressive #15 on the annual list, also recently received accolades from GoLocal.com, which announced that Shrewsbury was a top 3 contender for the“50 Best Cities + Towns For Doing Business in Central MA.”

Oh—and one more great reason to “nest” in Shrewsbury—as we mentioned before, it’s the home of Southgate at Shrewsbury, the premier destination for senior living in Massachusetts. Whether you’re from Central Massachusetts or you’re a snowbird from Florida looking for a place in New England to call home, Southgate at Shrewsbury offers flexible, maintenance-free housing options with an impressive array of cultural, entertaining and intellectual activities, dining options and fitness offerings to satisfy the most discerning and sophisticated of our residents’ tastes.
