Once known as the "Jewelry Capital of the World", this Historic town is rich with culture, old and new. Attleboro in past years was home to a world-renowned, riverfront jewelry plant, which is now being converted in a verdant, community park. With recent revitalizations, the city center has bloomed in recent years, hosting multiple museums, a popular zoo, theatres, and two MBTA stations which make travel to nearby Boston effortless. The city also sits near Taunton, Providence, and Fall River, offering a plethora of activities within minutes. The town hosts satellite campuses of both Bristol Community College and Bridgewater State University, for those planning for the future.
