Merrimac is a small town with not a lot of crime. It is beside the Merrimack River. The schools in merrimac are average. However, Merrimac is expanding every year and new housing developments are being build. Merrimac is a nice town for families.
Very kind people, quiet, small town. Not much to do, but multiple athletic field, a small town market, a few restaurants. Short drives away are more restaurants, stores, movie theaters, and much more to do.
I have lived here all my life. Merrimac is a very quiet town with a close community of town members. There isn't much to Merrimac but it is in a good spot. You aren't too far from the beach, take a trip to Maine it's only 30 minutes, and so much more. Everything is out of town but never too far away.
Small town, great place to grow up. Good primary schools. Just a couple restaurants/shops. Quiet, but right off of 495.
Merrimac is a nice, pleasant town with low crime. It's not for everyone, but if you enjoy a pleasant, rural environment then Merrimac is a good town for you.
Small town suburb living. Community spirit with a town local government. Seated on 495 , 45 minutes to Boston, 40 Minutes to Maine. Great town to raise a family. 15 Minutes to the beaches, right along the coast. local businesses all help each other. Part of the Pentucket School District. a district serving three communities. West Newbury, Groveland, and Merrimac. My family has owned a small business in the town for over 100 years.
Merrimac is an extremely small town. One can gets involved in the community easily and there is a sense of family friendly where ever you go. I grew up here and I would not want to be anywhere else. There’s not much night life and if you want to go out it will be like 15 or 20 minutes which still is not that bad.
This is a great small town. There's hardly ever any crime, and the views are very nice. There are a lot of wooded areas, farms, cornfields and ponds. Along the Merrimack River is especially beautiful as well as Lake Attitash. It is also very affordable. There's a lot to do in neighboring Amesbury and Haverhill, and also in nearby Newburyport and Salem NH.
Small, quiet town. Great place to raise a family and relax near the river. Plenty of trails and woods to explore. Easy rides to all stores; only 15 minute rides to neighboring towns Amesbury and Haverhill with more lively nightlife, dining and entertainment. Quick and easy highway and main road access.
There is only a minor drug problem within the town, but the police are visible and are helpful when you need it. There are always cops on the road, watching for speeders.
This is a great town for children; the crime rate is low, and there are a couple elementary schools within town that have playgrounds. There are organized sports for younger children until they reach secondary school, in which junior varsity and varsity athletics are available. However, the town has a very minor drug problem, but then again most towns do these days.
This town is dominated by forest. Wherever there is a free patch of land, there are trees growing on it. There are also many small creeks and ponds, as well as the slightly larger Lake Attitash. There is a trail through one section of the woods and a soccer field, but those are as close as we get to having a park. It's kind of nice that way, though.
I'm only eighteen, so I really don't pay too much attention to the public services. So I guess that means that they aren't bad.
This winter has been unusually bad, but usually the weather is quite nice. It is a New England town, after all, so we have cold, snowy winters but also hot, sunny summers and everything in between. The autumn foliage is also quite nice.
I'm only eighteen, so I just have a minimum-wage, part-time position at a grocery store. This seems to be a decent area, though.
There are a few small cafes or coffee venues, but nothing really impressive. The neighboring towns do have some very nice options, though.
This is quite a small town, so there are no large stores, and very little variety in what stores are present. For example, there are an abundance of family-owned salons, garages, and cafes but no gas stations whatsoever. There are two convenience stores in the town center which stock a surprising amount of essentials, but in order to go grocery shopping one must drive to another town (the closest supermarkets are about a fifteen or twenty minute drive away).
