A look at Concord's downtown and surrounding streets

Welcome to Concord



Hello friends – This LibGuide has been created for those of you who are new to the law school and Concord, and for those of you who may not know all there is to know about Concord. 

Concord is a small city, with areas of the city being separated by the Merrimack River.  Interstate 93 follows along the Merrimack within the city for a few exits.  If you’re driving into the city from Boston/Nashua/Manchester, you’ll find the downtown area, South End, North End and the West End of Concord to the left of the river.  On the right side of the Merrimack are the Heights and East Concord. 

In this part of the guide you'll find some day to day important stuff - grocery stores, walk-in care, parking info, but also give you website links and info on all things fun, i.e., good eats, Main Street, and unique shopping, getting to know Concord, etc. 

Some fun stuff...

There are attractions right in Concord that are worth the visit.  Just walking along our award-winning, re-designed Main Street is a treat, with its restaurants, shops, and entertainment options, you can sit, relax, and enjoy the view. 

In New Hampshire, grocery and convenience stores carry beer, wine, and mixers. Spirits are available at the NH State Liquor stores on Fort Eddy Road and on Loudon Road. Free parking is available in most shopping centers' parking lots.  There is no sales tax in New Hampshire. 

Sometimes parking can be tricky:  There are parking kiosks (PaybyPhone) located all along Main and surrounding streets.  You must pay for parking Monday – Saturday, until 7:00 p.m.  Sunday and some holidays, parking is free.   A few restaurants also require paid parking in their lots.  


This guide was originally created by Kathie Goodwin and updated periodically by the Law Library Staff.
