Compare Scituate to Top 10 Best Places
This former farming community has many homes on large plots of land -- perfect for privacy-loving Yankees. Scituate works to maintain its forests and lakes to preserve the rural tranquility. The downtown is quaint, with a small country-style main street.
Scituate's economy depends on the city of Providence, which is struggling in the recession. That explains why unemployment here is higher than the national average.
On the plus side, taxes are relatively low, yet the schools are highly ranked -- an unusual combination. And homes here have mostly held their value. --R.G.
