Situated about 50 miles or so north of Boston, the city of Manchester, New Hampshire sits along the Merrimack River. This city was once a thriving mill town. Now, it has become the largest convention, sports, entertainment, and arts & cultural destination in New Hampshire. You can find many opportunities to experience and explore the area from sports activities and concerts at the SNHU Arena, AA minor league baseball at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, or live performances at the historic Palace Theatre.
If you are looking for a museums, this vibrate city has the the Currier Museum of Art, the Millyard Museum and the SEE ScienceCenter. Each of these offer look back to Manchester’s past and into its future.
Manchester Downtown Hotel (formerly Raddison Hotel) and soon to be a Doubletree- This is a great option for ease of access to the main areas of the city.
Hilton Garden Inn-Downtown Manchester– a good secondary alternative that sits quietly off of Elm just behind Market Basket (the local grocery chain).
Things to Do:
This lively city offers many local events, activities, and even day trips to such towns and cities as Portsmouth, Nashua, the White Mountains, or Boston—just to name a few. Feel free to explore the following for some possible options:

The Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is the by far the easiest means of airport transportation to this gem of city in NH. It is a mere 15 minutes or so from downtown (depending on time of day) before you can begin your New England adventure.
