|NEW HAMPSHIRE: MERRIMACK VALLEY/THE CAPITAL REGION
Centered around the Capital Region's three wonderful cities,
the Merrimack Valley is one of the most beautiful areas
in the world.
Boasting the best of modern life and old-time values,
the cities are beautiful examples the American way-of-life.
Nashua, which has the convenience of a big city and the
intimacy of a small town, has been named as the best place
to live in the United States in several annual polls. Concord,
one of the oldest cities in the country, is the State Capital
with a rich and diverse architecture and history. Manchester
was the largest textile producer in the world at the turn
of the 20th century and is an utterly perfect example of
mill-town culture in this country.
All of these towns are rich in history, culture, the arts
and entertainment (including the world-famous Rockingham
Park thoroughbred race track) and there is enough to keep
a visitor occupied for weeks. But to enjoy the "best
of both worlds", one need only to step outside the
city limits and you'll find some of the most picturesque
and untouched countryside in the country. The historic
Shaker Village, Bear Brook State Park and the areas many
lakes and forests make this a perfect place to experience
a peaceful time.
So if you'd like to "get away from it all" -
but not too far away - New Hampshire's Merrimack Valley
and The Capital Region is the place for you.
