Setting & Lifestyle
New Salisbury is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, New Salisbury’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, New Salisbury is worth considering.
One downside of living in New Salisbury, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 31.53 minutes every day commuting to work.
New Salisbury is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of New Salisbury isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 100.00% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.
As is often the case in a small town, New Salisbury doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
