New Hampshire quality of life
No state income tax, few / rare natural disasters (forest fires, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, etc) and accessible outdoor recreation make the area attractive.

New Hampshire a Nice Place to Live
NH offers a diversity that you don't find in many areas of the country. You have lakes, mountains, the ocean, you're never too far away from any of them at any one time. New York City is 4 hours away, Boston can be reached in 2 hours from virtually any populated area of the state. As a native in his early 50's, I'm pining for less intense winters, otherwise this is a great state to raise a family, or to retire to if you like winter sports.

Move elsewhere
While New Hampshire is a beautiful state and has everything to offer it is not a place to buy a home unless you are wealthy and can afford to live off the interest of your investments.
The property taxes are outrageous because we do not have a state or sales tax.
The home owners support the state, period!

Vehicle registrations are ridiculous too and you don't have to have automotive insurance...That's right, your not required to carry it unless you get popped for OUI or get into an accident.
Because of this the ones who elect to have automotive insurance pay high premiums and if they get hit by an uninsured motorist, you'll be covered for your injuries but you wont be able to sue your insurance company for life long injuries because of the accident because the laws wont let you sue your insurance company! So if you lose a limb or a loved one, your loss, in the mean time the one who hit you is now obligated to carry automotive insurance.

If you rent, that's fine, you don't have the burdens of the home owner.
The state motto is "Live Free Or Die" and its true, you can live free in NH (if you collect welfare) because the tax payers, (home owners), pay for it...

I'm not against people who collect welfare, some people need it, but NH makes it easy for people to get it even if they have incomes.
What you see a lot of here are single moms with their working boy friends living with them.

New Hampshire life
The quality of life in New Hampshire is true New England. People are friendly, once they get to know you, and one feels safe most of the time. The winters can be severe but the Autumn is beautiful beyond description.

The New Hampshire Advantage
I've lived in NH for 16 years. New Hampshire real estate taxes may not all be ideal -- but we have NO state income tax, NO sales tax and one of the highest safety ratings (crime rate is #47 of 50 states) in the country. Named in the CNBC rankings of "top states for doing business" as #1 for quality of life (#5 for education; #9 for business-friendly).

New Hampshire was the first to perform an outright act of insurrection in December 1774, was the first after John Hancock to sign the Declaration of Independence and -- as the 9th, majority-producing, state to ratify the Constitution was "the state that made us a nation."

We still have the first-in-the-nation Presidential Primary, are the only state to help an American President win a Nobel Peace Prize (see PortsmouthPeaceTreaty.com) and allow citizens to own and carry guns. Our state legislature is the largest -- which gives us an effective ratio of 1 legislator for every 3000 or so citizens New Hampshire has four glorious seasons, ocean beaches, lakes, mountains, forests (2nd after Maine for coverage), colleges and fresh air.

Consider that Daniel Webster, Robert Frost, Alan Shepherd and Christa McAuliffe, Robert Rogers (of Rogers Rangers), Celia Thaxter, Bode Miller, Steve Tyler and Dr. Seuss all have deep New Hampshire connections and you realize that "Live Free or Die" is a slogan that means more than first meets the eye.

crime trends
I am in school for criminal justice. I would like to find crime trends and stats and comps in crimes from all over the US. Mostly a comparison in small towns like Hudson, NH and cities like Lawrence and Lowell, MA.

New Hampshire
We have lived in NH now for about 12 years, coming back here after being away in the military for approximately seven years. It has changed considerably, and the property taxes are unreal. The economy, while being bad everywhere right now, is probably worse here. There have been breaking and entering and stealing, malicious mischief. Things are not good here. We would like to go to Kingman, Az and either build on land we have there, or move into the city and sell our land. But we need to get more info. Anyone thinking of moving here may not find a job, and your mortgage, while being low, will rise from the taxes. lots of rain this year too, more than usual.

cold winters, great schools
Small town southern New Hampshire has a lot to offer if you're raising a family - the high property taxes are more bearable when you see how great the school systems can be. The cold winters are hard but the rest of the year is gorgeous.

Climate in New Hampshire
We have very variable weather here. The rule of thumb is if you don't like the weather today, wait a minute. We have long winters and short summers, autumn is awesome. We have heat waves and ice storms and lots of snow.
