Hi all,

I'm looking for any experience or observations any of you might have or have had, with the towns of (East) Wakefield and/or Wentworth (yes, opposite sides of the state). Good and/or bad and why you think so. Anything such as friendly or nosy or stand-off-ish, touristy or just locals, or crummy cell phone reception or bad roads, anything at all that someone who lives here might know that a 2-day visitor would not and internet searching won't uncover.

Thanks!

Maybe there is more to that observation than meets the eye. Something to think about, thanks.

Wakefield is substantially larger part of the "Seven Lakes" area and is closer to populated areas of the Seacoast. Wentworth is more isolated other than being close to Plymouth. Wakefield gets a larger summer influx of residents, winter population is less.

Wentworth is a tad isolated but does have NH Route 25 (east/west). Also Route 18 (north/south).

Dartmouth Hitchcock Hospital is about 45 min - 1 hour away in Lebanon.

1.5 - 2.0 hours north is Magog, Quebec. Sherbrooke a little further. If you like to go shopping in Canada.

Wakefield (specifically, East Wakefield, if that matters) and Wentworth on the opposite side of the state near Vermont, northwest of Plymouth. Two completely different areas I'm interested in and looking for insider info for either or both, any comments and observations welcome.

Well, I have experience with both. East Wakefield is a place I remember fondly from my youth as my grandparents had a small camp on Province lake. I do t really know what that area has to offer now but I'd ha e to guess it would be better than Wentwort. ��

I live a half hour south of Wentwort and work in that town quite frequently. It is very rural and pretty economically depressed. Warren, its neighbors, even more so. It has part time police coverage and on call fire service. Town office is not open every day.
