Manchester Airport - Great Alternative to Logan!
If you are heading to New England, you may want to consider flying into Manchester's airport versus Logan in Boston. The Manchester Airport is smaller, newer, and has much less congestion than you will find at Logan. I've flown into both and if I were going to New Hampshire...

The New England Sampler: Local crafts and reasonable prices
The Sampler is a quiet little shop just off Elm St. The store is simple and straightforward - almost dull - but the most desireable of local wares are carried, and priced right.
The usual suspects are available: maple syrup, pancake mix, postcards, and the like. However, I...

If some one sends you to canal stree to view the beautiful canal, you will only see a street which replaces the canal, hence canal street. What a terrible decision it was to fill a canal to make a street.

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Wow. Mosquitos and black flies in New Hampshire are thick. The beautiful green countryside hides armies of bloodsuckers. Definitely carry bug spray(or Avon Skin So Soft - local secret, keeps most bugs away). If you stay in central Manchester, the abundant pavement provides relief, but any forays outside Manchester at night will be thick with buzzing little predators.
