Moving to South Coast area of Massachusetts, where is the best place to look?

Asked by exitnirvana (912points) May 5th, 2009

We’re starting the search from a Rhode Island standpoint, so not really sure where to look, any suggestions? I know its a large area between Boston and the RI coast, but I’m sure there a few places to avoid…

The “south coast” of MA? You either mean Cape Cod… or Connecticut. :-P

My uncle and aunt have lived in Hyannis for years. They seem happy there. <shrug>

I stand corrected. Apparently “The South Coast” is a marketing or PR term the folks west of the Cape and south of Boston created a few years ago to describe themselves. My bad.

I’ve found this site, city data to be very helpful when it comes to relocating to a new area. Hope it helps you!

There’s also the South Shore.

The best place to look depends on what you’re looking for, and where you need to commute to. You’re not likely to get much useful information without sharing that info.

OH, now I see. Yeah, if you had said “Fall River or New Bedford,” I’d have told you you probably don’t want to live there, instead of wondering if you were confusing things with the South Shore.

Sorry for the confusion, I’m using my SO’s terminology and he’s from RI, that’s how they refer to the area where he’s from. He’ll be commuting to Portsmouth, RI and I, at this point in time don’t have anywhere to commute to. We’re trying to stay away from Fall River/New Bedford if possible, even though its really the cheapest. So I guess any area from Bristol, RI to Boston. I know the areas closer to the bigger cities, but I’m unsure of surrounding towns…
