Do you know the actual difference between a city and a town? I never knew. A city has 50,000 or more residents. A town has less than 50,000 residents.
With that in mind, here are the 10 fastest-growing cities in Massachusetts as we head into 2023. If the grocery stores where you live are looking a little more tightly-packed with humans recently, maybe you’re on the list! How exciting?

Just for fun I also included the top Youtube result for each city when I searched “things you didn’t know about (insert city here).” A few are pretty amusing.
