Winthrop is a medium-sized coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Massachusetts. With a population of 18,352 people and five constituent neighborhoods, Winthrop is the 107th largest community in Massachusetts. Winthrop has an unusually large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic cities.

One of the nice things about Winthrop is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.
One downside of living in Winthrop is that it can take a long time to commute to work.

Many of Winthrop’s neighborhoods are dense enough and have amenities close enough together that people find it feasible to get around on foot.
