Melrose is a perfect compromise between a busy city and peaceful landscape. Grand old Victorian homes, a quaint downtown area, lush parks and fields, and Ell Pond are nestled just seven miles from Boston. The city has a thriving business community, an excellent school system, and a local hospital in addition to numerous healthcare and elder care facilities. At the same time, there is plenty of open space, forest area, and conservation land. Melrose offers a wide variety of cultural and recreational activities and services in in a unique neighborhood atmosphere.
