Just 20 miles west of Boston, Weston, Massachusetts has gotten more than its share of attention for having one of the priciest zip codes in America, according to Forbes magazine. While other communities are seeing home prices drop, they actually rose in Weston.
What does the 02493 zip code get you? Even though the city of Boston is an easy commute, Weston offers lots of green space, including miles of hiking and horseback riding trails, playgrounds, golf courses, and ball fields.
It also has excellent public schools. The Weston School District has more than 2,400 students in its elementary, middle, and high schools. This is a district that knows its priorities, pouring more than $19,000 in funding for each student to reduce class sizes and keep the focus on learning. Four out of five high school students take Advanced Placement courses, which has helped land Weston High School on U.S. News & World Report's list of top-rated high schools in the U.S..
