Just 10 miles north of Downtown Boston and only five miles south of historic Salem, the formerly bustling industrial center of Lynn, Massachusetts, has recently experienced a rebirth. During the Colonial Era, Lynn's primary industries revolved around shoes, textiles, and tanneries. General Electric Aviation and the West Lynn Creamery currently provide employment for many of Lynn's citizens. Newly renovated industrial buildings have been converted into lofts, sought after by many young homeowners looking to escape the big city prices of Boston without compromising their love of urban living. This up-and-coming gem has a variety of neighborhoods and can be found sandwiched between Massachusetts Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. A classic New England town with easy access to historic markers as well as many places of interest, Lynn, MA, provides all the urban charm of the big city combined with a small-town ambiance and prices.
