Visit Nashua - Best of Nashua

Nashua is a city in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, United States. As of the 2010 census, Nashua had a total population of 86,494, making it the second largest city in the state (and in the three northern New England states) after Manchester. Built around the now-departed textile industry, in recent decades it has been swept up in southern New Hampshire's economic expansion as part of the Boston region. Nashua was twice named "Best Place to Live in America" in annual surveys by Money magazine. It is the only city to get the No. 1 ranking on two occasions—in 1987 and 1997.


Once a textile industry hub, today the Nashua tourism is cashing in on its gorgeous locales and natural characteristics. Credited not once, but twice with the title of “Best Place to Live in America”, let’s take a look at what it is like to visit Nashua.

The Mine Falls Park sprawling cross a whopping 325 acres is a popular hiking destination, full of gorgeous trails. Then there is the Greeley Park, a public park sprawling across an area of 125 acres. It lies in the heart of Nashua and often holds entertaining, live performances. The SkyVenture is the perfect place for all the adventure junkies to hang out. Essentially an indoor sky-diving arena, this place also offers the opportunity to surf and rock-climb! The Holman Stadium, IncrediBREW, Graffiti Paintbar, and the New Hampshire Holocaust Memorial are some more worthwhile attractions.
