Merrimack Valley

Vacation time should be about expanding your boundaries and exploring new possibilities. Home to the cities of Manchester, Nashua, and our state’s capital, Concord, the Merrimack Valley is perhaps made up of the New Hampshire’s most vibrant cities.
The Capital Center for the Arts in Concord, is one of the finest arts centers in the state, and regularly hosts epic, must-see performances. The McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center will satisfy the curiosity of any budding astronomer. While you’re here, be sure to take a tour of the historic State House.
In fact, you’ll find rich history all over this region. At 4,000 years old, the oldest man-made construction in the United States, America’s Stonehenge is an archaeological and astronomical experience you won’t want to miss. Situated on 105-acres of woodlands, this structure determines solar and lunar events throughout the year.
Although a small city, Nashua, also known as “Gate City,” has endless outdoor experiences, with its cross-country skiing area and a 325-acre city park.  For a family filled day of fun, bring the whole gang to the picturesque Canobie Lake Park in Salem.
The Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, with its convenient location and easy access, makes traveling to and from New Hampshire a breeze.
