Pros and Cons - NH is OK - 12/13/2019
I have lived in 6 other states all over the country, making New Hampshire my 7th. I've been here for about two and a half years. Like everywhere else, there are good things and bad things about NH.

Pros are that it really is a beautiful place. Aside from Washington and Colorado, I'd say NH is the most beautiful state in the country. Lakes, mountains, beaches... it's all within an hour drive. Boston is close too, which is a pro and a con! The colors of fall are really stunning. If you are an outdoorsy person, you will never get bored in NH. Other pros include no state income tax and no sales tax on most things, which is a big help at the checkout line at the grocery store. It's a relatively safe state outside of inner-city Manchester. Plenty of outlet malls and decent shopping. Within an 8-10 hour drive of some of the country's largest cities like Boston, NYC, and Philly, yet there are plenty of rural places to escape to if you're tired of people.

Cold but great. - 11/6/2018
I've been living here my whole life, so I guess I don't have much to compare it to, but here's my opinion: New Hampshire is beautiful, I love the seasons and the leaves (when I was younger I didn't even know that the leaves didn't change colour everywhere, I figured it out on a vacation), and even though the winters may be harsh, you still find a way to have the best time. (I probably wouldn't have taken up ice skating if I didn't live in New England). Even if you're not here for the weather, there are still tons of things I enjoy about New Hampshire. Growing up was a blast, I may have not liked school very much, but I did get a great education (and I went to college not too far from home).

I loved my community and how much time I spent at events downtown. I remember how every year we (used to) go to the pumpkin fest as a family and in the weeks before, we would carve as many pumpkins as we could, to try to beat the world record of jack o' lantern's lit at the same time. Read More

New Hampshire a Nice Place to Live - 2/26/2011
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 Read More

Move elsewhere - 2/23/2011
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.

New Hampshire life - 7/26/2010
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. Read More

The New Hampshire Advantage - 3/22/2010
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 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 Read More
