Yes and this is a hospital group in the first city and has another hospital not too far from the second community: https://www.guthrie.org/about-us

There are others that could fit, but again, it will depend on what you are looking for.

I would also suggest upstate/central/western NY. Sure, they get a bit more snow than New England, but the cost of living is WAY lower and the level of charm is comparable. Someday I want to move to the Adirondack region.

I did think about suggesting Plattsburgh and Glens Falls, which are smaller areas that are close enough to bigger areas.

Upstate NY is a better bet.

The Northeast has it's sub regions (New England, Mid-Atlantic, Interior Northeast) but they're all the same when it comes to history, charm, great education, etc.

There is a difference in weather though. Coastal areas get far less snowfall and much more sun than the interior areas.

Upstate NY is very comparable to the Northwest in terms of sunshine/cloud cover.

You said New England, but Upstate NY is really no different. Even PA.

They're all full of small towns and cities, history, industrial/rust belt style, etc. so you don't really need to limit yourself to New England for what you want. I'm not sure if you think New England is much different than the rest of the Northeast but it's not at all.

A State of Addiction: New Hampshire's Drug Crisis | Health - WMUR Home


Only Delaware has seen a more rapid rise in fatal overdoses in the past decade than New Hampshire. In 2014, there were 26.2 deaths per 100,000 people, compared to 9.6 per 100,000 people a decade earlier. Mental illness is a key indicator of the potential for substance abuse, and New Hampshire has one of the highest rates of such disorders in the country. More than 21% of New Hampshire adults reported suffering from some form of mental illness in the past year, the fifth-highest share in the country.

New Hampshire’s drug use rate is one of the highest of all states. While less than 10% of U.S. residents 12 years and older report some form of illicit drug use in the past year, 12.7% of New Hampshire’s population 12 and older reports the same, the ninth-highest rate in the United States.

Yes I probably think "New England" is much different than Penn or Upstate NY. Good to know that the things that it so charming to me, spill over to other areAs.

I've read a little bit about that and most of the comments I've seen are
people saying that the drug problem is definitely there, it's just blown out of proportion. Most people say they see the statistics but don't actually notice a difference in their communities. Not to say drug addiction isn't a serious problem In NH... And that's something that would really bother me since I come from a family of addicts, some recovered and some died. Thanks for that info.

Any chance you can find a comparison with CA?

Yeah you couldn't be more wrong, haha.

New England does a good job convincing everyone out there that they're the only ones that have fall foliage, history, small towns, and charm, but that's all over the East Coast.


If I told you this was New England, you wouldn't know the difference. (It's Upstate NY).

If you simply Google Upstate NY and go to images, you will see.

It's kind of annoying that everyone equates New England with fall foliage and charm, but that's probably because I grew up near the Adirondacks. New England isn't a big deal to me at all. We have the same stuff.
