I lived in Northwood since I was born. It is such a great small town with a half hour distance to either Concord or Portsmouth or Rochester. It is right in the middle. It's perfect! The Elementary School is not the greatest but the high school, Coe-Brown Northwood Academy, is one of the best in the state for education.

The town is nice and fairly quiet during the other seasons. During the summer however it picks up, which can be good. At least there are local beaches that only residents have access to, so we can avoid the tourists if we want. The local market can be a great place to meet new people from all over, giving the sleepy town some form of excitement.
The lakes, local shops and people are amazing.
