Hooksett is an incredibly safe, quiet town. I have always loved living in this town as it is very clean, safe, and only a fifteen minute drive away from well-loved places like the mall, the movies, grocery stores, and many others. Hooksett is only a forty minute drive from New Hampshire's beautiful coastline, a two hour drive away from the mountains, and a one hour drive from Boston. This town truly feels like home. Although Hooksett is a larger small town with about 10,000 residents, growing up here was fun as you were able to maintain the same friend group from kindergarten to high school graduation. As a current Boston University college student, I absolutely love coming back to this town during breaks.
