Slightly more sane politics, although that has been changing thanks to all the mass holes moving north.

People are generally more friendly.

Better drivers.


…..plus no sales tax and better roads, esp. the major highways.

Ultimately, my point was that if a town already has some/most of these services, then the taxes are less likely to go up by 25+% (as an example) in a single year, due to potential new large construction projects. Something to just keep an eye on when you're looking at towns.

Okay, I think I see what you're saying... you're comparing towns with their own services to towns without the services that suddenly create the new services? But in any case, they can and do hike up a ridiculous amount from year to year, regardless.

There are extreme disparities with total valuations of real estate on a town to town basis across the state. If spending increases in a low population town with a small tax base and a low total valuation of real estate- equalized tax rate can increase dramatically. As I've mentioned before, Moultonborough has the highest overall valuation of real estate of any town in the state with a sizable land area. By comparison, Concord, with a population over three times larger as a valuation rate at the town level that is only somewhat more. The tax rate difference between Moultonborough to Concord is $7.72 to $28.10 respectively per $1,000 assessed value by comparison.

"all the mass holes" That's nice. I always figure that anyone ignorant or prejudiced enough to label everyone from a certain state or region as terrible is probably an a-hole themselves.

A few of my neighbors moved here from Mass. years ago & they are among the most down to earth people you could meet. And fortunately, unlike you, almost all the people here on the NH Seacoast who are from NH don't seem to care where anyone else is from.....most people here seem equally friendly.....

No people of color. (2Milion in Mass...maybe 100k in NH.)

More isolation. Far fewer urban areas and less varied cuisine.

Fewer government regulations generally speaking.

Significantly colder in central NH than Southeastern MA (I say south eastern Ma because South Shore may not be exactly where you are, many towns south of Boston are ‘Metro South’).

Less traffic.

Septic systems and higher property tax

Not as many bleeding heart liberals.
