Framingham is a cozy suburban community located about 12 miles east of Boston. Occupying most of the west bank of scenic Lake Cochituate, Framingham is a popular place for seniors and families to enjoy outdoor green spaces, such as the local botanic garden and the hiking trails of Nobscot Hill. Framingham gets nearly 46 inches of annual precipitation, which keeps the surrounding countryside a bright, verdant green for much of the year. In 2020, Framingham was named the nation’s 24th best place to live by Livability, a community ranking organization that considers cost of living, crime rates and general quality of life.
Framingham is home to just over 74,400 residents, nearly 16% of whom are seniors aged 65 and over. Because of the abundance of university and other local hospitals, seniors in Framingham can expect to pay roughly 14% less for medical care than the national average. Like the mild climate, Framingham’s exceptionally low crime rate encourages seniors to enjoy the city’s many public parks and local festivals.
