I didn't see many fast food restaurants. The most "college student friendly" place I saw was Starbucks. I may have missed some though. We were a little lost. [View Full Report]

If you have to be in suburbia, MA; Wellesley Center is a good place to be close to. Wellesley and Framingham are the only towns around here with anything going on. [View Full Report]

Located in a quiet, rich suburb. There is access to commuter rail, and there is a Gap and other stores and restaurants in the 'ville'. [View Full Report]

Its a rich suburb which means you aren't in danger of being mugged but it gets kind of plain and homogenous. [View Full Report]
