So we are visiting Mass this week. Think anyone can leave their State and say it is 10 times better.

Traffic can be a bit crazy in Mass and rude driver's, but can get that anywhere. Also people are much more friendlier it feels in Mass. Their is less trash and garbage. A lot more activities, better beaches, and so forth. Taxes are lower in Mass then CT, but COL in cetrain areas is higher. Fiancée is an LPN a lot more job's as well so that's a plus.

Now the question is NH vs Mass?

There is some decent areas in the Plymouth/Braintree area on the Southern coast of Mass.

Fiancée and I been tired wanting to escape CT run South. However, the deeper you go into New England it pulls you in. Winters are doable when you realize you get beautiful beaches and nice warm summers. We are considering moving to pretty much anywhere in Mass.

Also we were thinking of New Hampshire. Family used to live up there before I was born near one of their lakes. Fiancée is not 100% sold on the possibility of NH over Mass. Fiancée wants to remain good travel time under an hour to Boston and less then 2 hour's to Falmouth.

In comparison of the two States which one wins?
What does one State have that the other doesn't?

Appreciate the feedback.
