# of Reasons to Move to Manchester, New Hampshire
« on: April 20, 2009, 12:05:05 pm »

It's been discussed that it would be good idea for each particular City/Area in New Hampshire to have a list (100+?) of reasons why you should move there. 

As this is a big job for one, I thought it would be a good idea to start some different City threads and then Unleash everyone who knows, to be free to put up their Reasons to move to Manchester (in this case), and when we get a good list for each one, then they can be condensed and typed up, one after the other.

So if you know any Good reasons to Move to Manchester, New Hampshire, please speak up so we can help make it easier for those moving here to figure out which area fits them best.

For me, those are reasons to stay away from Manch. The main effect the Verizon arena has is to make parking horrible, especially around the Taproom.

I think horrible is an overstatement.  Parking around Taproom (which is on Elm Street - the entertainment part of downtown) is better than at the entertainment district of any city of major size I've even parked at (Boston, Nashville, Atlanta, New Orleans, Memphis, Kansas City).

The Arena is fantastic for activism because it brings so many people together.  Depending on the event, the Arena is a great place to hand out flyers.

Like Ron, I prefer the country, on the water, but I certainly appreciate everything that big cities have to offer.  Besides, we're going to need those 10,000 seats for the Liberty Forum in a couple years!

I prefer the country but I do love Manch. All the reasons above are true for me. Great restaurants and I love the renovated mills. There is a lot of character to Manchester. It's a great city to live in. There aren't ENOUGH 24 hour places, but one store that is going to 24 hours starting in May is the Dunkin' Donuts on Candia Road.
 There hasn't been a 24 Dunkin' Donuts for along time. :)

I am planning a move back to New Hampshire and will probably be moving to Manchester.   I went to school at Saint Anselm College but I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY so I need a city environment to live in.  Don't get me wrong, I love the country, but for FSPers moving from other big cities, Manch is a must.  I can't imagine any other city in NH offering the feel of a city.  Maybe I'm wrong.

Is Strangebrew still around?  That should be added to the list.  ;D

The statement of intent is your affirmation that you want to move to NH and work towards a free society.  It makes you a participant in the Free State Project (and remember, once we reach 20,000 participants, it triggers a whole lot of people to move).

You can join at this link or at the various links on the front page.  After that, you move to NH and then after that, you let us know (or log in and change your address yourself) so we can add you to the "mover counter" letting others know you've moved.  Feel free to ask any questions.
