Hopkinton is a great town to live in and grow up in. For a kid, it really encourages you to enjoy the simple life and spend time outdoors. I love walking, running, and biking the neighborhoods. There are no bad parts of town as far as I know. Getting involved in sports is common, great library, and great hiking trails. Right off the highway to ski mountains and Vermont. Not too far from Manchester, Portsmouth, and Boston. It is nice living right near Concord.

I recently moved to New England. Although the cold weather is terrible I feel that the cute little New England charm is definitely worth living here. Everyone is like family even when living acres away. Not to mention no billboards so you can really take in the beautiful New Hampshire mountains.
A beautiful small town full of wonderful people. There is plenty to do, from apple picking to handmade sign painting. Hopkinton harbors a strong sense of community, as everyone seems to know everyone. The school district is also very good.
