New Hampshire's largest city is definitely not lacking in amenities and entertainment! Up and down Elm Street, South Willow, South River, and many other places, the streets are lined with bars, restaurants, clubs, and shops, with incredible variety to keep anyone interested. From the regular big name shows and sporting events at the SNHU arena to the dozens of fine shops and food options at the Mall of New Hampshire, classic and contemporary titles showing at the Palace Theater to summertime farmers' markets in several locations, Manchester has something for everyone.

I like Manchester because it is the city that I have lived in nearly all of my life. Manchester has diverse weather and has many opportunities for recreational sports. Manchester has a variety of neighborhoods, businesses, organizations, and churches. As far as diversity is concerned, Manchester has many people from all over the world, including Asia, Africa, and South and Central America. Safety depends on the region and the time of day. Manchester has many parks and playgrounds of different sizes spread throughout the city. There are many schools and colleges in the city. Overall, I enjoy living in Manchester.
The crime rate in Manchester, NH is high, that is the only down fall in this City. I grew up on the outside of Manchester, almost in Londonderry & Litchfield which allowed me to be close to the city, but also enjoy the quiet suburb neighborhood. There are numerous of Parks in Manchester, NH, the night life is fun, and there are many activities, and places for both big and small families to go have fun. Manchester NH has 4 great weather seasons, the cost of living is cheap compared to surrounding towns, and the education children and young adults receive is great.
