Nashua is a city located in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire. The second-largest city in the state, Nashua is home to over 86,400 residents and sits roughly 20 miles or so south of Manchester, the largest New Hampshire city. Nashua is a part of the Manchester, New Hampshire Metropolitan Area, mainly due to its proximity, and is widely considered to be one of the best places in all of New England to live. In fact, Nashua is considered such a great city it was actually named by CNN’s Money Magazine as the “Best Place to Live in America” twice, both in 1987 and 1997 – the only city to have been awarded the honor twice – and has annually placed within the top 10 on the annual list.
Located on the border of Massachusetts today, when it was first established – back in 1655, under the name Dunstable – it spanned both territories. Once the boundaries were established for the two British colonies, Dunstable was split in two; the two halves continue to survive to this day, with the New Hampshire portion now named Nashua and the Massachusetts portion currently named Tyngsborough. Nashua became a center of industry in New England during the 18th and 19th centuries, primarily based around textiles. When deindustrialization began to sweep the United States during the latter half of the 20th century, Nashua was hit hard; however, economic foresight and decent overall economic planning has kept the city afloat, and has made the switch to a more diverse and retail-based economy.
Nashua is known for its warm, humid summers and cold, snowy winters. During the summer months, average highs usually reach into the low 80’s during the day, with overnight lows dropping down into the mid-to-upper 50’s. During the winter months, however, temperatures drop drastically; average highs usually only reach into the mid-30’s, while overnight lows tend to fall into the low teens and even into the single digits. Nashua is interesting in that it sees more annual snowfall per year than precipitation – in other words, it snows so much between December and March that there’s more snow than rainfall all year long. That’s impressive – and also more dangerous for car shippers, as snow is generally bad for what they do.
