Attleboro offers the virtues and values of small town living, yet is conveniently located within easy reach of Boston, Providence, and the beaches of both Cape Cod and Rhode Island. Attleboro is located along I-95, I-295 (begins near the North Attleborough town line at I-95), US 1, and Routes 1A, 118, 123 and 152.
The city is home to two MBTA commuter rail stations; one in the downtown area and the other near the Rhode Island border in the South Attleboro district. Nationally known as the birthplace of the jewelry industry, Attleboro preserves and maintains America's earliest beginnings while attracting cutting-edge technology companies. Attleboro is a friendly, growing city that appeals to those who seek a deep-rooted sense of community with suburban amenities, such as the 93 acre 18 hole golf course at the Highland Country Club. It is home to the Capron Park Zoo, which has several varieties of endangered species and has a wealth of educational programs. Many families have been here for generations and the sense of town pride is strong.
Attleboro includes the localities of Briggs Corner, Dodgeville, East Junction, Hebronville, and South Attleboro.
