CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE
Concord was named and founded in the spirit of conflict resolution, and refers to the desire for harmony between the feuding towns of Bow and Rumford. In the 18th century, when the two towns were founded, New Hampshire and Massachusetts were a little bit hazy on their official state boundaries, so when Bow and Rumford were founded on the border between the two states, conflicting land grants from the two states created some confusion about what land belonged to which town. Eventually, New Hampshire carved a bit of land out of the town of Bow, creating a new parish town called Concord to promote peace and harmony.
New Hampshire State House: Other state capitols are much grander but this one is old and beautifully proportioned. It is the opposite of grandiose and ostentatious. Be sure to stroll over to the John P. Hale statue on the grounds. Beautifully kept state house. Friendly staff make a nice tour of the place. Just a wonderful place to bring young folks to learn how our Govt works, and sometimes doesn’t. Staff are always great even with the challenges of today’s world they are super, and the building is steeped with thought provoking icons of our country’s beginning. Nice job NH would expect nothing less from the Live Free State! Tours are offered and it features the Hall of Flags – very old flags on display. The statehouse is in the heart of downtown Concord, nearby the NH Museum, NH State Library, and many other great historic buildings. Great dining and shopping can round out a day in downtown.
Red River Theatres: They show a wide variety of films. They have the best popcorn which you can enjoy with a glass of wine or a beer or other refreshing drinks. Red River Theatres is a non-profit theater located in downtown Concord, NH. There are 2 theaters showing first rate movies, most of them new productions. Very comfortable fairly steep seating, allowing a good view of the screen instead of heads in the next row. Tickets can be purchased on line which is nice for popular movies. Nice food concession. A nice change to the typical Movie chain experience.
Carter Hill Orchard: If you want to disconnect from Wi-Fi and spend some face time “old school” with your loved ones. Carter Hill is the place for you! Not only can you pick your own seasonal fruit you have a gazebo to sit in while the kids play in the GIGANTIC play area. The store is open and airy with excellent customer service. Great parking as well. Pick you own apples in a beautiful setting with views over the entire area. Also has a nice store with apples, produce, yummy pies. Also great hiking trails are located at the back of the property (the West End Trails). The store also sells hot cinnamon donuts, fudge and homemade pies. They also have a large playground for the little kids.
Susan N. McLane Audubon Center and Silk Farm Wildlife Sanctuary: The center has several interesting and informative things to do. The main building has some exhibits, a classroom and a nice gift shop. The gift shop has a lot of nice things tied to nature including books, t-shirts, cards, souvenirs, etc. The website has a calendar of events that you can explore. In another building, you can see birds of prey including an eagle, owl, hawk and more. There are picnic areas and hiking trails-nice for a sunny day when the ground isn’t soaked and there is a trail guide on their website. They also have directions on how to get there on their website which is helpful. Staff are informative and it is a nice peaceful place to be.
Kimball-Jenkins Estate: Free and open to the public art galleries located in a historic mansion and carriage house. Frequent public events, art shows, lectures which are offered at no charge.
Pierce Manse: The Manse is the only home ever owned by Franklin Pierce, 14th President of the United States. Fortunately, the house was moved from downtown Concord to this more park-like setting. A small visitor center offers a video and exhibit about Pierce. An informative guided tour provides history about the house and the Pierce family–their triumphs and tragedies.
President Franklin Pierce Tomb: The graveyard is interesting for the early gravestones, some dating back to the 1700’s.
McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center: An awesome time is to be had here. Admission is very reasonable, and the planetarium show ‘The Little Star That Could” is fun for children. The show teaches about difference in star colors and tells the story of a little ‘average’ star that is born and how he seeks to find a name and planets. Some of the characters were a little weird for adults but the kids learn something. The exhibits were cute and the kids had a good time. This might be even better for a little older age group that could read some of the signs, but there were still plenty of things for the kids to be excited about seeing since they have an interest in outer space. The display about The Challenger, and what happened is well done. It is a small museum and they currently have an experimental fighter jet that has as like the one Alan Shepard tested before being selected to be an astronaut. Very cool!
Manchester Municipal Airport (MHT) is the service airport to Concord. Fly from Orlando, rent a car and you will be on your way to Concord. Give TravelKatz a call and we will giv your vacation our special touch. 352-277-2700.
