Area Attractions: MetroWest Charm + Boston Culture

One of the aspects people love most about North Hill is that you can enjoy our tranquil, natural setting on a Wellesley/Needham hilltop. Whether you are still working on enjoying retirement, Boston is only a short ride away.

That unique balance is what attracted residents Irene and Robert Wright. The Wrights are what you might call "citizens of the world.”  They've called the cities of London, Paris, New York City, Washington DC and Boston home. They’ll  be the first to tell you that living at North Hill has offered them an easy way to keep enjoying a metropolitan lifestyle. Along with new friends and neighbors, they now enjoy the cultural playground of Boston with its theatres, Symphony Hall and a host of international fare.

The Wrights also note that you don't have to hop on the T or route 90 to take advantage of great amenities and attractions. The Boston MetroWest area, where our campus is located, features:

  • esteemed colleges and universities to quench your thirst for lifelong learning
  • parkland and rivers to keep your love of the outdoors alive
  • a multitude of prestigious art and culture groups to nourish your soul
  • local eateries (including several ranked at the top of Zagat's Boston Restaurants list!) to satisfy your craving for fine dining
