Zimmerman House

To view this home, you must go through the Currier Museum of Art to schedule a tour. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Zimmerman House in 1950 and his influence is noticeable in all areas of the house. From the exposed brick to the rows of bookshelves and built in furniture, this is a fine example of Wright's work. Don't forget to take a peek at the mailbox, Wright even designed that too! Please note that children under seven years of age are not permitted on the tour of Zimmerman House.

Bedrock Gardens

For a journey like no other, take a walk through Bedrock Gardens. Started in 1987, this 20-acre (eight-hectare) garden allows visitors to travel on a journey through the gardens. Famed for its landscape design, horticulture and art, there is so much for visitors to do during the couple of hours it takes to cover the garden. The owners have thoughtfully sketched out a journey to follow with starting points, places to go and things to do along the way. With various specimens of flora, fountains, sculptures, wildlife, pond, and even woodland trails, this magical place will definitely take your breath away. The garden is currently privately owned and is only open to the public four days a year.

Bear Brook State Park

One of the largest in New Hampshire, this sprawling state park boasts a vivid tapestry of bogs, marshes and drapes of charming, forested expanses. A wonderland for hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians, this 10,000-acre (4046-hectare) park is delightfully cleaved by winding, crisscrossing trails. Home to campgrounds (of which the Bear Brook Camp is part of the National Register of Historic Places) and spaces for archery, the park is traversed by a meandering stream called Bear Brook. The park also harbors a stunning museum ensemble which includes the New Hampshire Antique Snowmobile Museum, Old Allenstown Meeting House, and the Richard Diehl Civilian Conservation Corps Museum. This expanse of wooded wilderness is the crown jewel of New Hampshire.

SEE Science Center

How often do children sit in a science classroom, bored by what their teachers are explaining? Much too often! This will never happen at the SEE Science Center where exhibits, demonstrations, and displays help children and adults understand the world around us. Robots, gyroscopes, lights, electricity - all can be experienced at the Center. One of the most popular exhibits combines history with science and fun. The largest permanent LEGO minifigure structure in the entire world resides in the SEE Science Center. It depicts the Amoskeag Millyard at the height of its power as the largest producer of textiles in the world. The scale, 55:1 matches the scale of the LEGO people to make the exhibit as accurate as possible.

SNHU Arena

The home field arena for both the Manchester Monarchs and the Manchester Wolves, the SNHU Arena is a great place to watch both professional hockey and American football. Other events, like the American Idols Live! Tour and bands like My Chemical Romance have been known to grace the venue as well. Ticket sales are available both at the Arena and online. 10,000 seats are available for a hockey game, and one of the largest political events in New Hampshire, a rally for Barack Obama. Colleges, such as the University of New Hampshire and Dartmouth men's hockey teams play in the arena, as do well known teams such as the Boston Celtics. For both sports and music, the SNHU Arena is the place to be.

Amoskeag Falls

Ensconced amid lush greenery from all four sides, the Amoskeag Falls gracefully cascades over the Merrimack River's western banks. Jewel-blue waters dropping from a height of 50 feet (15 meters) and shimmering in the sunlight make for a captivating sight. Teeming with diverse marine life such as migratory sturgeon, salmon, and alewife, Amoskeag Falls is an angler's paradise. One of the main reasons why Manchester is the megapolis that world knows today, the surging waters of the falls lured the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company to start their hydropower plant in 1807 near it, attracting settlers from all over the United Kingdom to its lands.
