A new study found that Woburn is one of the best cities to live in Massachusetts.

Credit Donkey, a company that provides credit report information to consumers, focused on five key factors:

  • Odds of being a victim of a violent crime
  • Commute time
  • Income
  • Residents who attended some college
  • Restaurants per capita


Woburn ranked third on the list for best cities to live in Massachusetts, according to Credit Donkey.

Here’s why Woburn received high marks:

“Woburn ranks third on our list partly because it’s one of the safest places to live in Massachusetts, with a crime rate of 405 crimes per 100,000 residents. Wages here are also slightly higher, with incomes averaging just over $72,000. Woburn ties with Waltham for the shortest commute time, clocking in at just 24.2 minutes.”

Beverly ranked number one on the study.
