When people hear Concord many automatically think of Concord Massachusetts, but how about the charming capital of New Hampshire? Concord (pronounced Con-CURD by the locals), New Hampshire is full of history on its Main Street. Among buildings of significance is the New Hampshire State House, the oldest capitol in the U.S. where legislature meets in its original chambers.

Concord is full of local pride and the spirit of small town life supporting their local businesses. It’s a great spot for foodies with excellent restaurants, bakeries, candy and ice cream.

It is a great place for the arts lovers with the Capitol Center of the Arts and the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen. For space and science lovers there is the fun and interactive McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center.

Concord’s central location also makes it the perfect place to stay to explore other surrounding towns in New Hampshire like Warner or Henniker.
