I grew up in the town of Raymond. I've watched this small town grow. There are plenty of restaurants to check out, even the famous Tuckaway Tavern. If you're feeling bored you can always head down to the towns bowling alley! The people here are super welcoming and always willing to help if you have problems.

This is not the town you want to move to in Southern NH. There are very poor job prospects in NH and this area is far to long a commute to Boston market. Furthermore, the schools in Raymond are atrocious. We took our child out of the public school because her learning was so stunted. The community also does not intend to invest in better schooling. When given the choice of a new Elementary school - which is in great need of replacement or expansion - the town chose to vote in favor of a new police station instead (needless to say there is little real crime in Raymond and from my experience the Police are more of a problem in giving out speeding and traffic related tickets than in addressing the ongoing drug problem in the area).
I have been living in Raymond for a little over 2 years now. It’s a quiet town and everyone is really friendly. Every day when I’m driving through my neighborhood, people wave and say hi. Even though I don’t know any of them. That speaks volumes abou this nice little place. They have a small downtown area where they hold ost of their summertime festivities. My family and I have always enjoyed ourselves when we go.

It is right next to the highway which is also a huge plus.
