Penuche's Ale House
Penuche's Ale House is Nashua's last real dive bar. That pretty much says it all. It's the sole occupant of a small building that could be a setting for a scene from the Lord of the Rings or some other damn hobbit movie. Inside is rustic to say the least...It does have a...

Exit 8 commuter lot is not secure.
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.

Mine Falls Park
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.
