Compared to Highways, public routes has a lot of fun, as you can take a closer
look at sceneries and stop by places, whenever you like.
Route ? From Littleton to Lancaster
From off the town of Littleton to Whitefield, it is quiet and you can enjoy sceneries. It
is nice to drive up and down hills with windows opened. If you see bikers on the other
lane, you want to cast a hand sign for them as greeting. It is really an easygoing region.
In Whitefield, you may want to have a lunch at a local diner. People around here arealways
friendly. You have to still go up north to head to Lancaster. The route between Whitefield
and Lancaster is scenic. Literally you are driving up and down mountains. When you go down
the mountain, you will realize the beautiful landscape over the town of Lancaster.
Bypass 28 from Salem to Manchester
If you're in the town of Salem and to head to Manchester in north without driving on
highway, you will definitely come across the bypass 28. The road will get you out of the
town quickly and then you will find yourself in areas full of trees. You will have to go
up and down the hill and then get to a traffic circle. Do not get confused there and you
must keep on going straight uphill. If you see a church at an intersection on the right
hand side, you're now in Londonderry area. From this point and above, it can be a scenic
drive, as it is a straight raod that goes under arches of trees. Don't worry about gas.
When you are out of the arches, there is a gas station. You would have to drive a little
longer until you get to Manchester. You will drive under arches of trees again and go
downhill. When you see a tip of the lakes, you should know that you are almost there. Lake
is situated at the last sector of the route. This lake, enjoyed by many, is a popular lake
in Manchester throughout a year.
Route 3 from Nashua to Manchester
Just like Bypass 28 being a detour between Salem and Manchester rather than getting on the
highway, there is a detour between Nashua and Manchester. Route 3 can be used to travel
between Nashua and Manchester instead of the highway. It can be slow to travel but you
don't have to pay the toll so that in the long-run, it is buck-saving. After you leave
Nashua, you will pass by the beer factory, and then go through restaurants, plazas, houses
and buildings, which stand sparsely along the road. The town can go on several miles.
There is a little ice cream house on the left hand side, where President Bush stop by
before the campaign. You still have to head up north until you get to Bedford. You will
pass through little hills and woods and then finally you get to Bedford, which is adjacent
to Manchester. Make sure that you go over the bridge at the borderline of Bedford and get
onto Elm Street. If you go up north on Elm, you will get to the downtown Manchester.
Route 3 from Manchester to a Diner located around Veteran Cemetry near the
fork of Route 3 and 4.
First of all, this road trip does not really have scenic views. Rather, it is the road
trip to go through some of the main cities in NH. From Manchester, you must drive toward
Hooksett. Take right at the last intersection on north Elm street, go straight on Route 3.
After Daniel Webster, Route 3 which connects Manchester to Hooksett, you will be in
Hooksett. It is a nice town, where country-styled lifestyle can be found. You may want to
stop at 99 for dinner. From Hooksett, you will go up north toward Concord. You are on the
right track if you pass a hunting store, in Hooksett, on the left hand
side. In Suncook, you will go up a hill after a bridge and keep on going straight through
a town of Penbroke. There is a traffic light within a few miles just before you go down a
hill. You stay on the route, go down and up a hill and keep on going straight. When you
come down a hill next time, you will realize that you are getting to a city. It is the
city of Concord. You go under highway, and keep on going straight. You will go across the
city. Some intersection might look tricky but stay on the same route. As you get away from
the city, within a few miles, there is a jail on the left. You might pass some town but
keep on going. There is a fork in several miles ahead. You take the left route there to
remain on the route 3. After you pass the residential area then, you will get to a curved
T intersection. You will turn left to merge onto the route coming from behind. This is
still the route 3. After a few miles, you will get to another fork route. This time, take
right to remain on the same route. You should realize that the other one is the route 4.
This is a woody region. From the fork, it is not that far until you get to the diner
located around Veteran Cemetry. The diner is located on the left hand, adjacent to a
motel. It has an atmosphere of a log cabin and they serve good Sunday brunch.
