New Hampshire: An Ideal Place To Retire

Dec 20, 2023 12:05PM ● By Virginia Dean
With its varied seasons and natural beauty–including the well-known kaleidoscope of fall colors–New Hampshire offers an attractive and surprising choice for any senior considering retirement. College towns like Dartmouth and Henniker make for pastoral smaller options, while seaside Hampton Beach and lakeside Wolfeboro provide access to boats and quaint coastal scenes to which many retirees are willing to move.

Inside the small state lies one of the most desirable towns in which to live. Hanover is well known as the hometown of Dartmouth College, one of the historic Ivy League universities, and its 10,300 residents have good reasons to welcome a potential retiree. The town offers active seniors a range of interesting places to visit, such as the Hopkins Center for the Arts, Nathan's Garden botanical site, and the historic Baker-Berry Library. Older people with health needs can seek aid at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center or settle into Kendal at Hanover, a 65-acre spread near the Connecticut River, for a planned community experience. If seniors are seeking quiet years in what is perhaps America's quintessential college town, Hanover is an exceptional option.
