New Hampshire is a great place to live! We have everything. The sea, the mountains, the lakes, Story Land, the first library in America, I could go on like this! And taxes? Who needs them! It’s a great place to start a family. Of course, if you are considering moving somewhere, ideally you want to buy / rent a property in a safe city with a low crime rate. Did you know that New Hampshire has the second lowest rate of both violent crime and property crime of the 50 states according to safewise.com? New England as a whole has some of the lowest crime rates in the country!
