Welcome to Medford

Medford is a bargain-hunter’s dream, providing one of Boston’s best values for quality-of-life and convenient access. It’s a family-friendly town, but also has plenty of apartments for singles. Middlesex Fells Reservation is like a piece of the countryside in the middle of the city, with excellent terrain for hiking and mountain biking. The town’s restaurants are varied and unpretentious. Medford is directly adjacent to I-93, and offers good bus service, including a 15-minute express bus to downtown Boston.
