Pittsford (town), New York

Right in the heart of the Green Mountains, this former iron-mining town today is the quintessential Vermont getaway, complete with a white steeple church, antique shops and cozy country inns. Don't miss the outlet stores and wonderful eateries.

Manchester is New Hampshire's largest city, located about an hour's drive north of Boston. Elm Street is the main downtown area, with plenty of restaurants and several parks, as well as an arena.

Known as the Queen City, Manchester is the largest that New Hampshire had to offer. Although there isn't a lot here, you will find some decent restaurants and fun events if you're willing to look around.
