Quality of Life

Elliot HospitalSet in northern New England, Manchester's prime location, inviting neighborhoods and natural scenery directly contribute to the quality of life we enjoy. Kayakers, skiers, bikers, hikers and outdoor enthusiasts find playgrounds not just within city limits, but statewide. Tax-free shopping and dining in our world-class restaurants are also favorite pursuits. Less than one hour from pristine beaches, beautiful mountains, sparkling lakes and bustling Boston, finding something to do is easy - it's deciding just what to do that's tough.

In Manchester, healthy living is a focus, as evidenced by the superb healthcare institutions providing cutting-edge service from within the city limits. In October 2017, Manchester-Nashua was ranked the 19th Happiest City in the United States by National Geographic Explorer. Men's Health designated Manchester as the 9th best city for men in its 2007 survey of the nation's top 100 cities. While in 2006, Morgan Quinto Press voted New Hampshire the Most Livable State and in 2005 named New Hampshire the second Healthiest State in the nation.

Manchester has tremendous healthcare options, including Catholic Medical Center and Elliot Hospital - large hospitals located within the City. Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center offers excellent healthcare as well, while a number of specialists and small practices provide superb care. Manchester was recently ranked (May 2017) as the sixth Best City in the Nation to Practice Medicine citing a low rate of malpractice suits, highest rate of employer-sponsored health insurance, and third most satisfied hospital patients in the nation. 

Manchester is a place where you can find your space. Your business, your family, your friends, your life - all finding space in a city where your business life and personal life strike that happy balance.
