I love that Hudson is a small town with a close-knit community. The dog park at Benson's is one of my all time favorite places. I think that Hudson does a great job regarding it's volunteer opportunities and their is never a lack of volunteers! However, I wish that Hudson would have more restaurants and cafe's open later at night. It is a very family-friendly community and is close to many cities where there are more activities.

I lived in Hudson, New Hampshire growing up and I really enjoyed my childhood there. Hudson is a very safe place with a welcoming community. I did not attend the public schools in Hudson but I have heard good things about the school system. I had many neighborhood friends growing up and the community was nice to us all. There are many parks and forest walks all through the town. Benson Park being one of them, years ago it was a zoo but got shut down and the town transformed it into a park and nature walk with all the previous structures still standing. There are also many job opportunities in Hudson, I currently work in Hudson at Market Basket, but there are many other employment opportunities.
Nice, quiet and friendly town. Some schools are walking distance from homes. The local high school is wonderful. Very nice, quaint cafes and diners. Enjoy!
