Goffstown is an overall small, safe town full of friendly people. The community participates in many town events like the Pumpkin Regatta in October and Old Home Day in July. I enjoy how easy it is to connect the town together and spend time. The school district is very successful with high scoring tests and advanced sports teams. The middle school is actually a member of the New England League of Middle Schools Spotlight School! I am very comfortable with Goffstown as a whole and enjoy living there as a resident.

Goffstown is a cute little town. It is quite rural, mostly woods and suburban-type neighborhoods. But it does have a more "commercial" road with your basic box stores, and also a small village that has that quintessential New England charm: a bridge, rail-trail running by it, an old library, couple small churches & post office, and a BRILLIANT coffee, flower, and gift shop called Apotheca. Overall, not much to do in Goffstown but it's incredibly safe and the community is tight-knit.
Goffstown is a very friendly place. It is family-friendly and a lovely, safe and quiet town. Everything is within a close range, there are cute shops and boutiques, their library is well kept and nice, and overall walking around town is great! I love living here and pretty much everything about it.
