I think Hudson is a great town! There is tons to do for both for adults, children and families. There’s plenty of stores, restaurants, and family-friendly activities that can be found right in the center of town!

This town has a major reputation for bullying within the school system. I was bullied out of the school system in Elementary School and since then have come across so many others who have experienced the same, at all ages. If you are even slightly unique, whether that means nerdy, artistic, poor, etc. the students will crush any ounce of light inside you, because you do not fit their mold. Bullied at an especially young age, there are certain parts of myself that will always be broken because of the cruelty I experienced, and I am not alone. This has nothing to do with fitting in because the school system I selected into was filled with the same white, rich jocks and cheerleaders but no bullying EVER occurred. Hudson needs to address the bullying situation within their school system, because if I am still hearing of it, ten years after I left, something needs to be done.
I grew up in Hudson in the 60s and 70s and early 80s. We sure had some characters in town!! I have nothing bad to say about my hometown. The schools and employment served me well into my career. The police cut us breaks when we did stupid stuff. I have the fondest memories of friends and places. We used to be able to get from one end of town to the other on our mini-bikes by trails and backways without being seen!! The town and people molded me in so many ways into who I am today. Every so often I go back to Hudson to visit the old spots where great memories flood back. I just drive and walk around, and remember. In fact I'm coming back in June. The town hasn't changed too much, it's still well run and succeeding. With my AIr Force career I've lived all over the country and the world. I've never lived anyplace better than Hudson. One day I'd like to move back.
