Love this place, such a strong, loving, and diverse community. Everyone is so kind and welcoming. The schools are great, there are tons of local restaurants, and the annual Thanksgiving Day Race is something you definitely want to be a part of!

Fairly large, diverse community with various resources, stores, restaurants, and activities. Manchester provides residents with great access to schools, stores, health care, and has multiple highway access points. I highly recommend Manchester for anyone. Great community to live in with your family, or by yourself. There are great options available for housing as well.
Manchester is a safe and inclusive community of all demographics. Resources are made available to everyone who seeks them and there is always live public entertainment during the summer! The schools are wonderful and everything is pretty close by.
