Located 40 miles from Boston and 20 miles from Providence, Attleboro is nicknamed "The Jewelry Capital of the World” because of the number of jewelery manufacturing companies that operate there. The city has experienced numerous changes in the past 20 years, with three mayoral administrations working to revitalize the area. In 2011, Attleboro was awarded $5.4 million to restore its historic downtown. Meanwhile, 40 new homes are scheduled to be built on Pleasant Street, and the city is on the verge of developing several acres on the edge of downtown into a mixed-use zone of residences and businesses.
The L.G. Balfour Riverwalk, once the site of the famous L.G. Balfour jewelry manufacturing plant, is the centerpiece of Attleboro’s downtown. The riverfront park has a playground, volleyball area, skate park, and a multi-use path with two pedestrian bridges. Attleboro is also home to four museums, the Capron Park Zoo, the Triboro Musical Theater, and Attleboro Community Theater.
Attleboro is easily accessible by Interstate 95, I-295, and U.S. Route 1. The city is also home to two MBTA commuter rail stations, one in downtown Attleboro (Providence/Stoughton Line), and one inSouth Attleboro.
