Good Place to Live

Hello All,
I am looking to find out where in NH would be a good place to live with kids that are in Junior High and High School. Any good ideas and comments would be greatly appreciated. I am also looking to be close to the Massachusetts border but, all suggestions will definitely be considered.
Thanks for all the help.

The Keene area is nice if you want a quant college town 20 miles from MA and 20 miles from VT. Great schools. Too far to cummute to Boston though

I lived in New Hampshire for 10 yrs now and work in Boston. To me It's worth the 50 min. commute each way. I don't see a whole lot of people moving out of New Hampshire.

from an education view I'm pretty sure Keene is right near the top as they have everything from K-12 through College and all their schools are consistently solid performers. Cost of living is pretty decent there too and there are some good companies to work for there as well.

If you're looking at private school the Phillips Exeter Academy is really good in Exeter, NH and you're still pretty close to college level education as well as Boston

Laconia area is great!!! Many lakes to swim in and fish in the summer and to snowmobile or ice fish on in the winter and Gunstock ski area is just a few minutes away. And located in the center of the state.

Well, Laconia is 19 out of 100, 100 being safest with regards to crime. Keene, 55. Overall, Laconia may have good schools and such, not going to look, but even where I am I can see the crime is higher in Laconia than Keene.
Google is a pretty handy tool, too. Good luck

Bob
