I love this town. It's spread out, and has wonderful natural surroundings, but also the convenience of modern shopping. The cost of living is reasonable, the library is excellent, and it's been twice voted the "Most Livable City in America"!

I would like to see more community service, to make Nashua a healthy non-polluted environment! Nashua is a small town and everyone is friendly, I just wish schools were a little more advanced with education. Also there is a drug problem in Nashua that needs to come to an end for the community's well being.
Boring town, not much to do for 15-20 yos.. downtown area is for 21+ bc of all the pubs. Don't know why anyone would want to study here, unless those who are instate. This place is has tons of places for hire so there is always jobs. Very diverse place considering NH is 94% white! Gas prices are pretty good here. We are close to boston so there something to do for the younger people, the bus ride round trip is 21$ with a school id. id say the health care providers are decent but the price is a lot unless u have a good insurance.
