Nashua, New Hampshire is a beautiful city that is rich in history, culture, and art. It’s full of fun things to do and see, with something to suit everyone’s tastes. Whether you’re looking for family-friendly activities or just want to relax with some quiet time alone—Nashua has it all! Here are 30 of our favorite places to visit in Nashua:
1. Mine Falls Park
Mine Falls is a great place to go for a walk or have a picnic, and it has many amenities to keep you entertained. There is a playground, dog park, pond, waterfall, and walking trail. The park also has a children’s garden that kids can explore while they’re there!
SkyVenture New Hampshire is a flight simulator attraction. Here, you can fly a plane, helicopter, or jet in any number of scenarios that range from the realistic to the adventurous. You’ll be able to experience the thrill of flying without leaving the ground at this unique location! It’s also a great place to take kids—they’ll love being able to control their aircraft and get their hands on some fun toys.
It makes sense that SkyVenture would be located in Nashua since it’s close enough to Boston but still far enough away from major cities like Manchester and Concord where there are other similar attractions (and traffic). A visit here will help you learn more about aviation while still feeling like you’re having fun—what could be better than that?
3. Greeley Park
Greeley Park is a popular park in Nashua. It has a pond, playground, and tennis courts. The park also has a basketball court and a walking trail that goes around Greeley Pond.

The stadium was built in 1939 and is home to the Nashua Silver Knights, a professional independent baseball team that plays in the National Futures League. The Silver Knights have been around since 1999, but their roots go back even further, they were originally founded in 1946 as members of the New England League and played under that name until 1983.
The 5,000-seat stadium is open to the public on most days of the week year-round and offers plenty of food options inside its gates at concession stands located throughout the facility. In addition to baseball games and other sporting events being held there regularly throughout the season (May–August), Holman Stadium also hosts concerts from time to time—this past summer saw performances by classic rock band Foreigner as well as country music star Darius Rucker!

20. The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd
If you’re looking for a place to worship, or just want to visit a beautiful church, the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd is a great option. It offers services every Sunday at 10:00 am and 6:00 pm (though there are also special events that may change this schedule). The building itself is rather nondescript if you’re used to gothic cathedrals or ornate temples. Instead, it’s a plain white building with arched windows and doors across its front face. The door is usually unlocked but you should check in case there has been an unusual amount of vandalism lately as police patrols have increased recently due to some high-profile crimes nearby that have been attributed to one young man in particular who hasn’t yet been caught by authorities despite being identified by several witnesses at both scenes where these violent incidents occurred.
Inside are wooden pews arranged around an altar where clergy performs their rituals during services; most members prefer sitting towards the front because they like seeing all the action happening right up close when something exciting happens during services such as communion time where everyone stands up together while singing hymns together loudly before going back sitting down again once song finishes playing on large speakers installed throughout the entire room so everyone hears the same song whether they sit near back wall or far side corner!
21. Whole Foods Market
Whole Foods Market is a chain of supermarkets that features organically grown foods, fresh produce and meat, bulk foods, and vitamins. Whole Foods also serves as a grocery store for those who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet.
