I grew up in Canton and loved it! Go Bulldogs!

That said, "best" is a very subjective word. I highly recommend that you take a look at a couple of resources and perhaps identify the criteria that defines "best" for you.

If public safety is a concern, it is always wise to check the crime log for the various communities. Many of these logs are available online ... however, if you're not familiar with crime logs ... I recommend that you check the crime log of your current town first so you are familiar with the statistics of a community with which you know.

If you're interested in school ratings http://www.greatschools.org/ and in Massachusetts, we have standardized testing known as MCAS and you can see the results from various districts at the state website at http://www.doe.mass.edu/mcas/results.html ... again, I highly recommend that you compare it with a neighborhood with which you are familiar so that you have some context.

In this age of the internet ... if you are into doing some surfing, it is also enlightening to check out some of the local papers to get some local flavor of a community (next best thing to knowing people who live there).

Canton has the Canton Patch http://canton.patch.com, the Canton Journal http://www.wickedlocal.com/canton, the Canton Citizen http://www.thecantoncitizen.com/ and the Patriot Ledger http://www.patriotledger.com/ not to mention what gets covered by the Boston Globe South.

Best of luck and let me know if I can help!

Best wishes and let me know if I can be of any further assistance!
