Haverhill is an awesome city for young people and older folks to live and thrive in. It has a rich history going back into the industrial revolution, which is referenced through its historic mill buildings. There are many local businesses to support, including farms, grocers, beauty supply, vision/dental/medical centers and more. It's far enough out of Boston to see the seasons change year round in peace, with enough city life that you can find something fun to do most hours of the day. The downtown area is jam-packed with local flavor; from cozy cafes to boisterous pubs, there truly is something for everyone. There are also several middle and high schools to choose from, including a technical school in which students can learn a trade along side their traditional coursework. My husband and I have lived here for almost four years, and I went to school here as an adolescent. I would absolutely recommend the Haverhill experience to anyone!

I grew up in this beautiful city, all cities have their ups and downs but Haverhill is the best! The downtown area and its buildings stunning, lots of restaurants and cute shops to visit. The best thing about Haverhill is many historical spots you can visit like Winnekenni Castle.
Haverhill is an up and coming city. The downtown area consists mainly of renovated mill buildings. There is a vibrant downtown restaurant scene that boasts some of Massachusetts best dining establishments. There are a variety of lakes and parks, most notably Winnekenni, a large plot of land surrounding Lake Kenoza. Diversity is one of Haverhill's greatest assests, bringing an amazing variety to the culture. There are also quite the variety of small, personally owned farms that provide fresh local produce in the warmer months. Although there is still room for improvement, Haverhill has done an amazing job enhancing the city in the last few years.
