Setting & Lifestyle
Greenfield 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. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Greenfield’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Greenfield is worth considering.
One downside of living in Greenfield is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Greenfield, the average commute to work is 32.93 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.
