Fun Things to Do in Manchester
Manchester is the largest city in the Granite state, the tenth largest in northern New England and has been voted one of the top places to live in the United States. This is both a family-friendly place to visit and offers a great night life and dining scene. Here are just a few of our favorites:
Take me out to the ballgame! Yes, that's right, Manchester is home to the Fisher Cats minor-league baseball team. All of their home games are played at Delta Dental Stadium in downtown Manchester. The games offer a tremendous amount of family entertainment, food, prizes, and some nights even a firework show that will make you feel like it's the Fourth of July. It is a fun and affordable way to see a professional baseball game without the cost and drive time of going into Boston. For the home games schedule, visit www.NHFisherCats.com
Manchester City Parks: The city of Manchester takes great pride in the abundance of green space and all of their beautiful parks, fields, Derryfield golf course and trails. Residents and visitors can enjoy a variety of recreational opportunities throughout the city. Take time to see and experience new activities like disc golf, history squares, or the rail trail that now connects the city of Manchester to Goffstown. The skies the limit in Manchester, NH!
