Visiting Manchester

Elm Street Taco Tour

Located in the heart of New England, Manchester, New Hampshire, is a spectacular combination of a vibrant urban center and the famed natural beauty and abundant recreational opportunities that abound throughout the Granite State. This city’s location is prime—Boston, the Atlantic Coast, and New Hampshire’s scenic White Mountain and Lakes Region are all within an hour’s reach, and thanks to our exceptional highway access and the first-class Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, Manchester is accessible from just about anywhere.

This city has fast become a first-rate entertainment hub in the Northeast, playing host to the hottest concerts, top acts, and biggest events. We’ve got anything from theatrical performances to highly-charged sporting events. The Palace Theatre and recently renovated Rex Theatre sit just blocks away from the SNHU Arena, while our riverfront professional baseball stadium overlooks a bustling and vibrant downtown. When one lives in Manchester they will certainly work hard, but undoubtedly have a lot of fun as well.

Manchester has a wide range of shopping and dining options available to them throughout the community. In recent years, Manchester has emerged as the premier dining and tax-free shopping destination north of Boston.

Manchester also has beautiful parks throughout the city, and Lake Massabesic, which is set in the heart of the city, offers boating, gorgeous picnicking locations, and hiking and biking trails. Visit Arms Park for a view of the breathtaking Merrimack River. In the winter, McIntyre Ski Area offers skiers and snowboarders snow-lined trails, while ice skating rinks are located on both the east and west side of the city. The Derryfield Country Club offers 18 holes of golf on expansive greens right in Manchester.
