Manchester is the largest city in New Hampshire, and a great place for families. Whatever your favorite activities, you'll find it here. Head out to Jillian's Billiard Club to play pool, go bowling, or play arcade games. In the winter, take the family to McIntyre Ski Area.1 Not only is the skiing fantastic, but they offer lessons for people of all skill levels.. Perhaps an evening out is right for you. Catch a dinner theater show by Stage One Productions at the Chateau Restaurant. Verizon Wireless Arena and the John F. Kennedy Center host numerous larger venue sporting and entertainment events throughout the year. Your kids will thrive at schools like Manchester Memorial High and McLaughlin Elementary. If fine art is for you, check out the Chapel Art Center at Saint Anselm College. Head to the Red River Theater for classic or foreign language films, or check out Regal or Flagship Cinemas for Hollywood's latest offerings. You'll find lots to love about Manchester.
