Live, Work, Play

Downtown is the place that makes Nashua a memorable place, a distinctive place, a civic place, a historic place, an eternal place, and an authentically human place. Downtown Nashua is not only about visiting, shopping, and dining; it is most excitingly becoming recognized as a great place to live and work.


Here you can enjoy a walk along some recently refreshed sidewalks as part of the ongoing downtown streetscape improvement project, people-watch at a “hip” sidewalk café, visit retail shops where two or three generations of family business-owners will provide you with traditional personalized service.


You will dine at some of New Hampshire’s finest and most distinctive award winning restaurants, discover and wonder at world-class historic architecture, take a romantic stroll on the riverfront, take in a performance of Symphony New Hampshire or Nashua’s own Actor Singers and Peacock Players. You can attend worship services within some of New Hampshire’s great historic church buildings, check out the Farmer’s Market at the Main Street Bridge, attend wonderful Public Events such as the Downtown Nashua Winter Holiday Stroll and Taste of Downtown Nashua; and the list and experiences go on and on!


The combination of reinvestment in our traditional urban neighborhoods and the new and emerging riverfront condominiums and restored/reinvented industrial buildings of the historic center district, exhibit Downtown Nashua’s renaissance of downtown living and lifestyle.
