Merrimack County Reviews
Merrimack County is a family friendly place to live with great schools and close to mountains, lakes, and the ocean. Centrally located and only one hour to Boston, Portland, and Portsmouth.
Pleasant town. Nice houses. Friendly people. Many local businesses with good food and products. Near the Merrimack Outlets.
I have lived in Merrimack County my entire life. It is a great place to live. The businesses are small, but they are very well-maintained and family-friendly. There are many trails winding through Merrimack. My favorite is the Northern Rail Trail. It runs along NH into MA. The Merrimack River is wonderful for boating, fishing, and swimming. There are good job opportunities, depending on your occupation. Cost of living is definitely higher here than in other places in the U.S., but it is reasonable. There are great libraries and educational tourist spots, such as the Hannah Dustin Memorial and Daniel Webster's birthplace.
