Over the past decade, Manchester has steadily evolved to include a lot of businesses which bring in more revenue for the city. I love this town because it has everything I need and feels close to shops, the airport and there are numerous grocery stores. At times the traffic can ridiculous, especially during the holiday season, but I am very satisfied living here.

Manchester has been a very safe, affordable, and great place to raise a family. It's near everything you could need, the highway, the shops at Buckland hills, and there are many fast food choices to choose from. The public schools are decent, there have been a lot of changes lately that Im assuming will make things even better. Its literally near everything.
Manchester is a very diverse town with people from many different walks of life. It has a beautiful downtown with restaurants, art galleries, churches and locally owned stores.
I would like to see the town government rehabilitate abandoned stores and convert them to recreation centers for teens.
