I moved to Tilton originally as a temporary living situation. I've grown to like living here. It's pretty quiet but the other residents are generally pretty friendly. Law enforcement is very professional but also approachable. Rent varies but is usually pretty affordable, especially if you work at one of the nearby factories where pay is very good. I would recommend looking into Tilton if you're looking for a good place to live. We're also right off the highway so it's easy to travel to Plymouth, Concord, and Manchester. Route 140 also runs in Tilton, making travel to the Seacoast region easy as well.

I really love downtown Tilton. It is very rustic and beautiful. Not too far from downtown, there is the Tanger Outlets, Applebee's, Hobby Lobby, and many other big stores that makes it convenient! I don't personally have any experience in the Winnisquam school district, but from my friends that have gone there or have children attending schools there, I am hearing fantastic things!
The area was nice and the stores on the main street were interesting to visit. It has slowly degraded though as time went on as stores left the area and more smoke shops opened up. The schools are nice enough though the students left something to be desired. I adore the music program at Winnisquam Regional High School and all the concerts that went on.
