Setting & Lifestyle
Winthrop is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success.

Being a small town, Winthrop does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
