What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Braintree

The neighbors are nice. It's quiet. We have a nearby place with many restaurants and bars. They cleaned it up well and built more condominums

I love all the family owned businesses in town. We do have some nice walking in the neighborhood areas to take the dog for a walk.

Lots of parks and restaurants close by. Very close to the center of town. Very close highway so travel is easy.

The houses are nice as are the people. It's clean. The roads are nicely paved. It's close to the highway and Boston. There are a # of great restaurants in the town and in surrounding towns.
