A small town tucked in the valley of the Green Mountains, where big, undiscovered experiences await. Where you can sip, savor, and shop. Where you can unplug, restore, and recharge. With world-class recreational activities and premiere cultural events at your fingertips, we don't blame if you never want to go home.
Stay at our boutique hotels, charming inns, and cottages. Browse our designer outlets and independent boutiques. Walk our marble sidewalks. Dip into New England history. Get to know the people and personalities that make Manchester unique. We're driving distance from New York City and Boston, and we're real nice people.
With the requisite white church steeple and seasonal aroma of smoky firewood in the air, this little mountain town has all the charm and outdoorsy appeal of a weekend escape. Even the sidewalks, made of marble mined from Vermont quarries, remind you that you’re a long way from Route 128. And you can follow them to a surprising bonus: dozens of outlet stores and artisan shops to help you tackle your holiday gift list. - Jon Gorey | Boston Globe Magazine
