Situated merely 15 miles outside of Boston, Wellesley is a traditional New England Suburban town known for being the halfway point on the Boston Marathon course, as well as being home to two of best colleges in the country–Wellesley College and Babson College.
Most of the homes in Wellesley are large Colonial-style, but you will also find a mix of Cape-style and Ranch-style homes as well.
Downtown Wellesley is made up of shops, bookstores, and restaurants, including the famous Ming Tsai’s Blue Ginger. Wellesley is also a quick ride to either Natick or Chestnut Hill, both of which have large malls for shopping. On a nice day, many residents can be found taking a stroll around Wellesley College’s Lake Waban. For commuters not wanting to drive into the city, the town has three commuter rail stops, making the daily commute into Boston convenient and stress-free.
Wellesley High School was recently ranked by U.S. News as the 15th best in the state, and other Wellesley Public Schools are close behind. Using the Great Schools rating system, which ranks public schools on a 1-10 scale, almost all elementary, middle, and high schools in the town get a rating of 9 or 10. Wellesley is also known for its Dana Hall School, which is a prestigious all-girls boarding school for grades 6-12.
