Manchester, New Hampshire
Only one hour north of Boston, this New Hampshire location was once a mill town. Manchester still retains much of its original architecture, though many of the historical, brown-brick buildings have now been repurposed as upscale restaurants and bars. The west side of Merrimack River gives a great view of the beautiful townscape, while the Currier Museum of Art is a must-see, with a great collection of art works on display and special exhibitions throughout the year. The museum also organizes a tour to Zimmerman House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The Gyro Spot on Elm Street is a perfect stop after a day of sightseeing in the town, serving fantastic Greek wraps and spanakopita.
