The Most Family-Friendly Spot in New Hampshire is This Coastal City
New Hampshire's a great state to live in for a multitude of reasons.
Recent studies have not only identified New Hampshire as one of the best states for raising children, but also among the safest states and best places to find a job. The Granite State ranks high when it comes to education as well.
It's clear that if you're looking for a place to raise a family, New Hampshire's a prime contender. But among the 200+ towns in the state, which one is the most family-friendly? Thanks to TravelPulse, we now know.
The website recently posted a list of the most family-friendly spots in all 50 states. For our neighbors up in Maine, that title went to Bar Harbor, while Massachusetts' most family-friendly town is Bedford. But what about New Hampshire? Drum roll, please...
The most family-friendly spot in New Hampshire, according to the study, is none other than Portsmouth.
That verdict comes as no surprise to this writer, who loves spending time in the charming and historic city. There's so much to do in Portsmouth for folks of all ages, like exploring the town's many restaurants and shops, enjoying live entertainment and seasonal events, and of course, strolling through the beautiful Prescott Park. Here's some of what TravelPulse had to say about Portsmouth:
Portsmouth is a great seaport town near the border of Maine, not only great for tourism but for full-time family residents as well. A thriving downtown boasts cool shops and great restaurants that are welcoming for children. Prescott Park is a big family hangout destination.
We couldn't agree more. Congratulations to Portsmouth for receiving this well-deserved title.
