The city has been named 2nd tax friendliest city, best place to live and start a business, and one of America's Cheapest Places to Live. Photo of Manch Mills courtesy of Wikipedia and Mikespenard.
There are many different neighborhoods to live in, as well as some choices of active adult communities in the surrounding area. Median selling price of a home in late 2013 was about $180,000 (City-data.com).
Manchester has great shopping with a number of outlet malls capitalizing on New Hampshire's lack of sales tax. It offers a somewhat urban environment that offers ready access to the outdoor recreation and beauty of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. It has won numerous "best cities" awards, most having to do with low costs and tax-friendliness.
