Boston is 32 miles north and Providence is 12 miles south. Additionally, Attleboro is at the end of the MBTA rail line with direct service to Downtown Boston.

First incorporated as town in 1694 and as a city in 1914, Attleboro has a long history as a place of homes and businesses. Known as the birthplace of the jewelry industry in New England, the city features red brick mill buildings and a significant presence of jewelry and metal fabrication jobs that make it one of the major manufacturing employment centers in Massachusetts. Together with this economic activity is an abundance of residential subdivisions, contributing to Attleboro's identity as a suburban community.

The facility, revitalized in 1989, features endangered species such as sloth bears and snow leopards, as well as a nocturnal exhibit and tropical rain forest. Each Christmas season, the marvelous light displays at the LaSalette Shrine draws visitors from all over the region to Attleboro.
