Hudson is a wonderful city to visit with cute locally-run shops, nice restaurants, and quite a few parks. Hudson has some of the highest-ranked public schools in the state! However (speaking as a resident), Hudson is not a very diverse city, has no night-life, and could use more stores/restaurants targeting families and kids.

I moved to Hudson a few years ago and love it! It is a very safe area and I feel comfortable biking at night. The downtown area is wonderful during the day, but dead at night time. If you live outside the main part of town; however, there are no sidewalks.
I love Hudson as a hometown! Though it does lack diversity and could benefit from a wider, more open worldview, plenty of residents are individuals who seek this same thing. Its school system is also phenomenal, and prepares students to face the world with a solid academic background.
