Shrewsbury—A ‘Best Place to Live’ According to Money Magazine

A few weeks back RemodelWerks shared five reasons to love Shrewsbury, Massachusetts’ 01545 zip code.  Now, we’ve got another reason to add to that list: Recently Money Magazine named Shrewsbury a “Best Place to Live,” ranking our scenic, yet bustling town an impressive #15 of the top 100 places to live in the United States!

RemodelWerks sure is proud to call Shrewsbury home. From our office conveniently located right at 621 Main Street in Shrewsbury, we consult with countless home and business owners looking to spruce up their existing homes and offices or build custom dream homes or commercial spaces. Sure, we may be a little biased, but in looking at the objective evidence, too, it’s clear to see that Money Magazine got things right!

For instance, taxes here, like in most Massachusetts have risen, but Shrewsbury residents continue to enjoy one of the lowest tax rates across the Bay State! Plus, we’ve got tons of ethnically diverse restaurants and shopping options. In addition, our great town is set to give the Shrewsbury Public Library a facelift with about $8 million in renovations. It’s through a great balance of thriving commercial businesses and fabulous family homes that Shrewsbury really stands out. For instance,’s “50 Best Cities + Towns For Doing Business in Central MA” ranked Shrewsbury at #3.

As we highlighted a few weeks back, Shrewsbury has got great schools, too. According to U.S. News & World Report, Shrewsbury has one of the best high schools in Massachusetts, coming in at a very impressive number 27 on its annual best-of list! Plus, scored many other Shrewsbury schools as 10s, including the Floral Street School, the Paton Elementary School and the Spring Street Middle School!
