Hillsborough County Reviews

Hillsborough County is great for families, there are a lot of outdoor, as well as indoor activities. It is also close to the Massachusetts border, which is nice. It is also a short drive up North for sking and such, just a great location overall.
Property taxes are very high in most areas, this makes homeownership too expensive for many. Many of our public schools do need attention.

Great community based activities for families! We go to concerts on the lawn weekly and they are on different days for different towns. Our town offers childcare for school age children that is income based and has a very affordable day summer camp that is very active.
Nice place to live, near beach, mountains and Massachusetts. Good schools and nice people. Lots of job opportunities, as well as volunteer work. There could be more nightlife for teens and adults, but Boston is fairly close.
