Frigid winters, black flies in summer - not much else
a very nice town
like what I've said, Nashua is one of the main routes of the seasonal fall foliage tours from boston as it has some amazing flame and golden leafs with different shades during autumn. you will have a 15 minute stop along the city at one of the areas with many trees with autumn leaves.more
This is one of the Private Parks along Nashua with views of the lake and is one of the favorite of Tour guides for a stopover while on a fall foliage tour of New Hampshire as to have contrasting views of the flame and gold colored autumn leaves with the lake as a back drop. you have at least a 15 minute photo and video stop here before going to...more

When I lived in Nashua, NH, I made at least 8 or 10 trips up into the White Mountains, mostly to show off my beautiful new state to friends and family. My favorite time of year is fall when the leaves are changing and the weather is still nice, just avoid the busy weekends. Kancamagus Scenic Byway is a favorite drive for many leaf peepers. I always...more

It started with a sugar shack along a rural road, and has grown into a popular country restaurant serving down home breakfasts and lunches.

No no no! This is a Brewery/restaurant. This place is very much centrally located with outdoor seating..perfect spot to drink beer (maybe) but the food is not remarkable. If you're already in Main Street, walk further and you'll find Surf or Michael Timothy's restaurant OR turn around, walk a little and you'll find San Francisco kitchen. Across the...more
Great seafood in Nashua area. Outdoor seating is available on warm season. Wait staff are well trained and knows their menu really well. On weekends, they have a pianist for entertainment giving the restaurant a "lounge" ambiance. Sesame Seared Tuna - oh lala it's above and beyond description. Try it!more
By NH standards, this place is pretty decent. If you are a martini lover, visit this place. About $8 per glass and they have a good list of martinis. I am not a drinker but I come here for the ambiance. They renovated this place to give us the NYC feel. If you are the designated driver, well that's too bad but try to enjoy their dessert. It's a...more
Martha's has a wonderful variety of food from standard burgers and steaks, to seafood, Cajun food, and Mexican. Their prices are a little higher than average, so be prepared to spend a little. Appetizers include hot wings, chicken fingers, and quesadillas along with some tapas items ranging from $7 to $10. They have a good selection of burgers,...more
Tupelo Music Hall is a great small venue for for live music in Londonderry, New Hampshire, which is just a short ride from Nashua. They serve food and the venue is BYOB, which is nice. I saw The Stompers play here to a packed house. The bookings seem to be geared toward the over 40 crowd, but that may change over time. Check the website for the...more
Boston Billiards might be a little off the beaten path in Nashua, but it is a great pool hall in a comfortable environment. This was our favorite place to spend an evening playing pool at one of their numerous tables.They also have a large menu that includes a variety of snacks and meals. Their appetizers range in price from $5 to $15 for items...more
Michael Timothy's is a trendy restaurant, but it was also our spot for a fancy night out on the town in one of the fanciest places in Nashua. They boast live music Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, with no cover charge. This is a place where you don't want to wear blue jeans and a ratty T-shirt... try Penuche's for that! The bar area where...more
I left my vehicle overnight at the exit 8 commuter lot in Nashua and took the Boston Express bus to Logan Airport for a trip. When I got back someone had cut the catalytic converter, oxygen sensor and pipes out from under the vehicle. If you have to do this park at the exit 6 lot near the station. They don't want overnight parking there but it is...more
Nashua Municipal Airport is a very active General Aviation airport. Most of the presidential candidates fly in and out of here on occasion during their campaigning. Operations in and out of Nashua include training, charter, corporate, military, and recreational flight operations. You can learn to fly here and Daniel Webster College is affiliated...more
The Manchester Airport is only about 25 minutes from downtown Nashua. Cars and taxis are about the only way to get there. Southwest flies to and from Manchester so the low-cost options are available. United, US Airways, Delta, Northwest and Continental also fly to Manchester.If your destination is in northern New England, this is certainly a better...more
This is a men's and women's clothing store. Has shoes, jeans, outdoor gear, some trendy stuff. All at a discount.Bob's usually has great sale coupons and is a great place to buy hats and gloves during the christmas season. Some real bargains, and away from the traffic near the mall.more
I left my vehicle overnight at the exit 8 commuter lot in Nashua and took the Boston Express bus to Logan Airport for a trip. When I got back someone had cut the catalytic converter, oxygen sensor and pipes out from under the vehicle. If you have to do this park at the exit 6 lot near the station. They don't want overnight parking there but it is better lit and more visible.
Hat, scarf, mittens and other warm gear for winter.
Bug spray, shorts, and t-shirts for the spring and summer. Always have a sweatshirt handy, as New England weather is unpredictable, and it can get chilly even in summer. Pretty much any american style clothing goes. Might get stared at if you walk around with cowboy boots and hat, though.
Mine Falls Park is a large park located in the city limits. It has miles of trails along the river and canal. Parking can be found off of exits 5 and 6 on Route 3. When I lived in Nashua I loved to run here on Saturday and Sunday. A loop around the entire park is about 6 miles, but there are a total of 20 miles of trails, allowing you to vary your route every time you run.
The park was dedicated in 1969 and has 235 acres of gently rolling hills and relatively flat trails. The park also has 16 acres of sports facilities containing 6 soccer fields, a lighted baseball field, and 7 general purpose athletic fields.
The canal itself was built in 1825 to provide hydro power to the downtown Nashua textile mills. The western end of the park is anchored by the gatehouse that was built in 1886. The downtown end of the park to the east is accessible via Pine Street which takes you to the cove, a large pond being preserved in it natural, undisturbed state for wildlife.
Additionally, a small hydroelectric dam was constructed near the gatehouse in 1984. This produces 10 million kilowatt hours of clean power per year for the city. Unfortunately, this dam and its pump house have spoiled some of the best views of the falls.

Favorite thing: Take a few side trips. There are some things to see in Nashua. But not much. Take a drive to Milford to go to a real-live drive-in. Pick up The Telegraph ( http://www.nashuatelegraph.com/ ) to see which double-features are showing throughout the summer. The Wilton Town Hall theater occaionally plays arty flicks, which you won't find anywhere else close to Nashua. If you want fresh veggies, to go apple picking, or to pet goats, go to Wilson Farm in Hudson. If you are going to stay in Nashua, you might as well shop. Everything is tax free. Just stay away from the Pheasant Lane Mall around Xmas time. It's a zoo.
