Quick Stopover in New Hampshire

 In New Hampshire, United States of America

I was in Maine and the next New England state to visit was New Hampshire. Since it was already late when I left Maine, it was about 1500H and it took about almost an hour to get to New Hampshire. I only did a quick stopover in New Hampshire. I intentionally planned to visit Flume Gorge due to the fact that it was advertised beautifully in the web. But due to time constraints, I ended up visiting Manchester, New Hampshire instead.

I arrived in Manchester around 1600H and searched the internet for any sights that is open late. I found this park and just decided to take a peek. I was in Crystal Lake Park.

Crystal Lake Park in Manchester, New Hampshire

Crystal Lake Park is a recreation site with a natural pond for swimming, boating, fishing and picnicking with a playground. It is near Bodwell Road and Corning Road in south of Manchester. The lake is classified as a warmwater fishery with observed fishes such as smallmouth and largemouth basses, black crappie, brown bullhead, and chained pickerel.

I stayed in the Lake Park about 45 minutes and when I left, I was not contented of my brief stay in the state so, I ended up going to the mall. The mall was just about 10 minutes from the park. I got to the Mall of New Hampshire at 1925H.

The Mall of New Hampshire

The Mall of New Hampshire is a shopping mall located in the Lower South Willow neighborhood of Manchester. It has major anchoring stores like Macy’s, JCPenney, Old Navy, Sears and Best Buy. The mall has over 120 stores with large food court and is the third largest mall in the state. It was spacious and I got my souvenir made since I can’t go to the nearest souvenir shop.

My whole trip in New Hampshire was brief but I was still able to do some quick sightseeing even though I didn’t get to see the tourist attractions of the state. One of these days, I’ll be back and I will make sure to visit Flume Gorge and other beautiful spots of New Hampshire.
