NH ranked US's 3rd best state to live in


We don't think it's new information that New Hampshire is a great place to live.

Just ask those who work at Time Magazine and ranked Bedford No. 21 on the “Best U.S. cities and towns to live in” list.

Don't want to take our word for it?

Another report yet again shined a light on how great of a place New Hampshire is to live.

According to 24/7 Wallet, of all 50 states, the Granite State is the third best place to live in America.

Although New Hampshire has one of the lowest concentrations of restaurants, bars and hotels in the country, it has some of the best income, unemployment rates and life expectancy rates in the states.

New Hampshire has the lowest poverty rate in the country at 9.2 percent compared to the national poverty rate at more than 15 percent.

New Hampshire also exceeds the national average life expectancy by more than two years. The life expectancy for babies born in N.H. is 80 years old.

Massachusetts and Connecticut take the top spots with the first and second best places to live.
