In terms of a relo - how does the Lexington-Bedford area compare to the Sharon area?
Quality of life/traffic/schools, etc?
Seems that there are solid hockey programs both to the North and the South, so that's less of a concern.
Outside of those areas, are there any other communities that are worth considering, factoring in the criteria above + decent proximity to tech jobs and good Bantam Major hockey?
North of the City or Metro West. Stay away from the South Shore!!
Yeah with all of the jobs coming to the Seaport (like GE / numerous biotechs / financial / Fidelity...) why would you want an easy commute into South Station or Rowes Wharf? Not to mention some of the better hockey programs, high school programs and full season Jr. teams???
You're right, "Stay away from the South Shore!!"
GE moved 175 jobs. Hardly changes the landscape. You've fallen for the Boston media spindoctors.
South Shore has traffic every day of the week. Including Sundays. Can't take a boat to the rink.
