According to the real estate blog Movoto, Plymouth is one of the top 5 cities in Massachusetts.

The blog does calculations on cities in each state in America. For Massachusetts, Movoto looked at education, crime, cost of living and amenities. It even considered distance from New York (a good thing) and number of Dunkin' Donuts (also a good thing).

Plymouth scores highest on amenities per capita and has the 15th-lowest crime rate in Massachusetts.

"Founded in 1620, Plymouth scored a lot of points as not just one of the earliest cities in Massachusetts, but the entire country. It is reportedly the oldest municipality in New England and one of the oldest in the U.S. This historically rich city did well with modern amenities as well, with some of the most per capita and the total in Massachusetts," Movoto said.

The blog goes on to say: "Plymouth has an impressive number of seafood restaurants, museums, and a sprinkling of Dunkin Donuts throughout the city. To top it off, Plymouth is about 230 miles away from New York—a pretty healthy barrier (though residents of both may wish it was even further)."

Boston was 28th.
