When people think of Medford neighborhoods, they often forget Wellington. A hub of shopping and transit it may not seem like a comfortable homey place to live, but in reality it is packed full of lots of different kinds of housing from single family
homes on the quiet streets behind Mystic Avenue to easy-to-live in rental units at Station Landing. Just a stone’s throw from the neighboring Assembly Row, Wellington has prime access to two orange line stops, lots of bus lines, routes 28, 16, and 93
and some of the best shopping the city has to offer (have you been to Wegman’s yet? It’s amazing!) Some hidden gems in the neighborhood include Serenity in the City salon, spa, and fitness studio (home to Energy Barre), discount pet store Pet Supplies
Plus & discount grocery store Aldi sit right next to each other in Fellsway Plaza, serving up super prices on all your household needs, and of course, Regina Pizza — a taste of the North End without the traffic. But don’t let the location fool you
either, Wellington has lovely green spaces too. Walk, jog, or bike along the Mystic River State Reservation or get on the river itself by launching a kayak or canoe from the public boat ramp near the Mystic Wellington Yacht Club.
