We are certain that you are very excited about your relocation and cannot wait to experience Manchester in all its glory. You probably did your best to make it a good experience, from hiring quality movers in southern NH to organizing all the details, and after all of that has passed, you will finally be able to meet the new city you will call home. Now, if you really want to experience your new surroundings properly, you must get to know Manchester and know where to start. This is something that we will be helping you out with.

What is the first thing you should do after you move to Manchester?

Once your household movers leave the last box in your new home, you will have a long list of things to do. We recommend that you handle that list before you continue with our guide on getting to know Manchester. Here is what you should think about handling right away:

  • Clean the entire house or hire someone to clean it for you
  • Unpack right now and leave as minimal boxes as possible for later ( which is easier if professionals packed for you properly)
  • Make sure that you have done everything you were legally required to do when changing an address
  • Call your loved ones to inform them that the move went great and that you are settling in

Once you have managed to get this list off of your back, you can continue with your plan to get to know the city.

Always start with taking a walk through the neighborhood

Logically, you cannot know everything right away and you have to start small. The first and best thing to do is get out of your home and take a stroll through the neighborhood. See where everything is. Try to memorize the path to the nearest stores, parks, and similar. You should know the area closest to you. Even memorize the houses because, chances are, your new friends and neighbors live inside of them. You can even stop by and say hi. Maybe someone is home and they have time to show you around. It sounds exactly like in the movies but people do tend to do things like that.

Meeting new people is crucial when you move into a new neighborhood, town, or city. They are the people who will tell you if your car is being towed and if your dog was spotted somewhere besides your yard. Leaving a good and positive impression is always recommended.

You can always do some research online for popular places

If you know nothing about Manchester, maybe starting online is not a bad idea. You can research some popular attractions and places you can go to. They are a part of your new home and you should get familiar with them. You have to start somewhere and tourist attractions are not as bad as you think. Manchester is a beautiful city and there is a lot for you to see. Even people who have lived here for quite some time end up learning and seeing something new. Once you choose amongst the moving companies Manchester NH, talk to your movers. They surely know some nice places that they can recommend to you. After all, they handle newcomers every day.
