Scenic Sharon, Massachusetts is located about 17 miles southwest of Boston and was incorporated in 1775. It was named after Israel’s Sharon Plain due to the town’s high level of forestation. That still rings true today as the town has a high percentage of conservation land within its borders. Sharon has made full use of this land with walking trails at locations like Borderland State Park and Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary. The town has repeatedly been found on CNN Money’s annual list of “Best Places to Live in the United States” most recently ranking 3rd on the list in 2015.
