Wow loaded question! I guess the best place to start is in the beginning. What is important to you in a home and a place to live. Different towns offer different amenities as well as commutes to work. You truly need to define these things before picking a town North of Boston.

* How far do you wish to commute daily ?
* Do you need a town with commuter rail service?
* Do you need a town with a downtown ?
* Are you looking for a larger plot of land ?

So many questions and so many towns ....

How far north? Charlestown is a great extension of the city.

First as a new graduate, why live north unless your job is north of the city. So much is going on in the city it is nice to live there Brighton, Southie, Waterfront, South End or very close, such as Brookline, Somerville, Charlestown.

If not those area's and you are moving north much will depend on what you are looking for in a communtiy and if you need transportation. Checkout MBTA for commuter info.

Also are you looking for a house or a rental??
