Besides being a major commercial hub in New Hampshire, the city of Manchester boasts some of New England's best art collections on display at the Currier Museum of Art. After looking at the museum's European galleries, take a tour of the nearby Zimmerman House, which was designed by the prominent architect Frank Lloyd Wright. You can transition from studying iconic architecture to cheering Manchester's minor league teams, at the Verizon Wireless Arena and Northeast Delta Dental Stadium.
Manchester is served by Manchester–Boston Regional Airport (MHT), which is located just off New Hampshire Route 28. As you ride through downtown Manchester along Canal Street, you'll see plenty of lodging options overlooking the Merrimack River. Book a room near the Mall of New Hampshire, if you want the convenience of staying in a major shopping district. The West Side neighborhood is an ideal choice for those who want some tranquility, far away from Manchester's commercial activity.
Just like other cities in the northeastern part of the United States, subzero temperatures are the norm during the winter. Mild days in the spring and summer bring the ideal conditions for walking on the Heritage Trail, and watching boats cruise along the Merrimack River. When you visit a seafood restaurant in Manchester, taste some New England clams and American lobster.
