The cost of living here is 25.4% less expensive than Boston and housing costs are 42.7% less expensive than Boston housing costs.

For music fans, the Folk Festival is the largest of its kind in the U.S. The festival, a three-day event held every July, is the city's premier cultural event, attracting thousands to a celebration of traditional music and folk entertainment on six outdoor stages. Also in summer are the evening concerts of Boarding House Park's Summer Music Festival, with a diverse mix of entertainment including contemporary folk, bluegrass, Irish, pop, and big band music. Fans of the performing arts can enjoy The Merrimack Repertory Theatre, an award-winning theatre company which stages a wide variety of dramatic productions.

Opportunities for outdoor recreation abound. The Merrimack and Concord Rivers provide fishing, canoeing, sailing, water skiing, and high quality white water rafting. The Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest offers six miles of trails ideal for hiking, jogging, horseback riding and cross-country skiing. The Vandenberg Esplanade is a prime venue for walking, biking, swimming, and picnicking along the banks of the Merrimack River.
