      Living in Somersworth, NH is just, simply put, average. Besides our education which is super awful according to the test scores from the schools in our area, the great choice of restaurants, coffee shops, and other amenities in our area, and the cost of living which is way too high considering what you get in return.

      So, what are the negatives besides high cost of living and horrible education in the area? P.S. if you’re looking to raise a family and care about the kind of education your children get, I recommend researching other locations in the NH area. Crime is just average, it could be worse and it could be better. Employment is just “eh,” meaning that there are opportunities but you have to be on the lookout in case you ever need it. Housing options are just below average and weather is just above. Of course we get a good amount of snow and ice in the winter time, but our summers may be even hotter than you’d expect.
