We had hoped to have a chance to tour the state house and appreciate the downtown area, but there was a community run and the crowds were huge. It looks like a beautiful area, but we could not see all that we had hoped we would.

As the oldest continuously used legislative building in the US, this charming building house a wealth of history. In the clerks office are dioramas of the Revolutionary War, and a bulletin board full of presidential campaign stickers, buttons and photos. Every presidential candidate that wants to run in New Hampshire must come to this office in person to register, so... More

It's beautiful. Sense of historic feel and walking distance around shops and foodies! Concord has and is updating streets which is looking very clean and a more enjoyable place ☺️

We just passed by Concord on our way back to Montreal form a trip to Boston, and the square, which houses the NH State House, the NH Library and two other such buildings is simply amazing. Now I just read that we could have visited them if not being Labor Day. I guess it will be for next time.

The state house is nice to visit if you are in Concord anyway, but it should not be THE reason to visit Concord. All employees were very friendly, but there just isn't much to see unless you are an avid fan of the State of New Hampshire.

This stately building is a nice place to see up close. After seeing it in the distance for years from the highway, we stopped by to take a closer look and walk the grounds. Concord is a nice little town with a great Main St... really kept up nicely. The Chamber of Commerce should be proud. The State House is... More

Not a lot to say. It is a state house at one of the founding states in the nation. It is a nice building but I would have hoped for more historical content at such a place-and in such a state.
