The Haverhill, MA is beautiful in the summers and cold in the winters. I lived there for about a year when my job transferred me to the area 2010. For people that are relocating, they will need to get a good idea of the housing the area. The best way to do this is to look up real estate agents that know the area well so that they can find something that will work for them. Trying to find housing by themselves may prove to be time consuming and costly.

The Haverhill, MA community is wonderful. People are interested in getting to know each other, and they are all concerned about safety. They also love that there is plenty of great shopping near to them so that they don't have to go far when they need things for themselves.

There are attractions in the area that many people enjoy. Winnekenni Castle and the Kimball Farm Corn Maze are great places to see. The area is also not far from the coast. If people want to travel further, they will be able to enjoy a variety of wonderful things to do.

The nightlife in Haverhill, MA is good for people that like entertainment. These two places bring a lot of people, the Chit Chat and RG's Pub. For dining in the area, they will find a great selection of diners and restaurants. There is something for everyone in the area to eat and enjoy some time out and try different kinds of foods. Two of the best places are Olivia's and Wang's Table. Many people go out for lunch and dinner in the area with friends and family members.

The first thing you notice in this town is that white, straight, middle-age men with money are embraced. Everyone else faces a shakedown and condescending attitudes. All of the so-called civic leaders actually live out of town. They all play one upsmanship and seem to be jealous of one another. City officials have been indicted and convicted (Google Haverhill Public Works Flaherty.) The high school lost accreditation because they didn't want to fix up the building because they hate minority students. Finally, it has been fixed up after huge sums of money passed through greased palms. It is just a disgrace.

I have been living in Haverhill MA my entire life and the one thing I cannot stand about this place is the crime. It seems that crime is slightly high here. The community is not a tight knit community and the people seem to always have their guard up here.

I do like the fact that there are some great restaurants in Haverhill. There are actually a lot of places to eat out at along route 110. My favorite place to eat at is Maria's Family Restaurant.

The nightlife is kind of lame though. There are hardly any good clubs or bars to go to in Haverhill. I prefer going to <a href="http://www.areavibes.com/lowell-ma/city-guide/" title="Lowell City Guide">Lowell</a> when I want to hit the clubs. The only decent bar in Haverhill is the Chit Chat bar over on Washington street, which is a pretty crappy part of the city.

There's not many attractions around Haverhill but in the winter time I enjoy going snowboarding at Ski Bradford which is located within a few miles of the city center. The shopping scene is very lame here too and there really are no malls or high-end shops located here. It would be nice if there was a section where many shops are but there isn't.

Haverhill, Massachusetts is truly a cool place to live. I love this city and all it has to offer. It is more affordable to live here, than other parts of Massachusetts such as <a href="http://www.areavibes.com/boston-ma/city-guide/" title="Boston City Guide">Boston</a>. One of my favorite parts of living in this city is that there is always something to do.

There are so many restaurants to choose from in this city. There are also many great boutiques to shop at in Haverhill. I adore this city for these reasons. Overall, I could never see myself moving to another state or another city for that matter. This city has the best of everything.

I also love the people of Haverhill, MA. They are kind and are willing to give you the shirt off of their back.
