FYI - I left the midwest (Illinois) several decades ago to move to NH - not far from the mASS. border - so this isn’t exactly what you asked but as a transplanted mid-Westerner, I can offer some perspective - (Why am I still here? Trapped by economics and the the state of the market. We survived living here but none of my kids live within 1000 miles of NE.
Do NOT expect a warm greeting from neighbors here - they don’t like people from ‘flyover’ country. Making real friends is hard - making acquaintances is really easy. You and your kids (even ones born after you arrive) are considered interlopers and ‘foreign’ but not exotic (if you are European or from the British Isles - you’re okay) - expect repeated, casual insults about the slow thinking, slow talking, ignorant people from the Midwest, south and everyone not an atheist or Unitarian - Congregationalists are tolerated and in some towns even among the favored.
Don’t be surprised if your local Democrat committee-man/person is a proud Communist or has dedicated Communists as parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. If you hunt or shoot - you can get away with it in some of NH but many will be leery of your extremist views.
Many people do live in NH and commute to jobs in mASS. It does save some in taxes but if you earn your money in mASS. you pay taxes there andNH just elected another Democrat Governor and turned the state legislature over to the Dems - the Dem majority are ALL in favor of an income tax, sin taxes, any kind of taxes - so that advantage may not last long.)
Lots of transplants and fugitives from mASS. taxes - the common name for transplants and invaders (tourists or relocatees or tax-evading spenders) for our ‘neighbors’ from the south is MASSholes. It fits.
Thanks for that reminder...two DEMOCRAT Congresswomen (Kuster and Che-Porter), and DEMOCRAT Maggie (pronounce it right) Hassan as Governor (three far, far, far left moonbats)...and NY'ers and Mass people consider NH a refuge??? There's another clue re: Massachusetts.
