I'm a resident of 20 years. What I like: the diversity of nature, wildlife is pretty safe (just watch for coyote), people do not care about your skin colour, sexuality, race, etc. The saco river is beautiful. It has plenty of amenities as far as buying basic necessities goes. There's lots of outdoor activities to do year round. Certain times of the year it's easy to get a job. What I do not like: most jobs pay terribly, housing is expensive, and the hidden crime. There's a lot of people on drugs (mostly heroine) and I've had many offer me drugs, ask where to buy, and if I sell them. If you make a friend and find out they're on drugs, end the friendship asap or you could find yourself in an unsafe situation. It's a major problem that the town likes to try and hide. The weather can also be pretty bad, very often dipping below zero in the winter and on rare occasion reaching high 90's, low 100's in the summer with a lot of humidity.

I absolutely adore the small town feel and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. The school system is amazing and everyone is very kind and welcoming. There can be limited job opportunities other then retail, a lot of the jobs are family owned businesses . There is a lot of local run businesses though which I absolutely adore, as well as local restaurants. The town is all about small businesses and helping one another.
Growing up in North Conway has been excellent for me. The town is very safe and there are many fun attractions to enjoy all year round. As I'm getting older, I'm realizing how North Conway lacks activities and nightlife for young adults like myself, but that has been the only drawback of living here. The skiing is excellent. Wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
