Merrimack Valley

Home to vibrant cities and idyllic villages, Merrimack Valley boasts some of the best historical scenic drives in New Hampshire. Stretching along the banks of one of New England's larger waterways, Manchester was once home to the world's biggest textile mill now turned into a thriving arts and dining hub. New Hampshire's capital Concord attracts art lovers and theatergoers with must-see performances and a walkable historical center. For outdoor experiences, visit Nashua with its huge city park and cross-country skiing area. Budding astronomers should add America's Stonehenge--presumably the oldest man-made stone structure in the U.S.--to their Merrimack Valley itinerary. When using our United States trip itinerary planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
