Everett Turnpike - US Route 3 Points of Interest
Interesting palaces to see as you are travel through!

Traveling the Everett Turnpike (US Route 3 in NH)? If your schedule isn't too tight, consider a 1-4 hour stop at any of these points of interest. Selected by their variety and proximity to the Everett Turnpike, some are educational, some are fun, some are 'classic' NH, and some are simply unusual, but all are worthy of a little time. Some are seasonal, most have fees, and schedules change so please do check their web sites prior to visiting.

Green indicates the travel time from the highway in minutes, and Blue indicates the amount of visit time we recommend you should plan.

Example: (10 - 90) would indicate the attraction is 10 minutes from the highway (including parking) in normal traffic, and plan on spending 90 minutes for a reasonable visit.

If you want to venture further afield, get a complete list of NH attractions here.

A special note about Nashua: Because of its proximity to sales taxing Massachusetts, Nashua is a favored haven for the retail community. We believe that 90% of all national retailers have a presence in, or nearby Nashua, making it a great shopping destination. There is a major mall, numerous strip malls and shopping centers, and many stand alone big box stores. Shopping highlights are posted in green under appropriate exits.

Everett Turnpike (US Route 3)    (Nashua, Merrimack, Bedford, Manchester Area)

Massachusetts Exit 36 - Middlesex Road / Daniel Webster Highway - Pheasant Lane Mall

Pheasant Lane Mall (5 - You tell us!) - Straddling NH/MA, this sales tax free mall contains 135 shops and restaurants. Two levels of pure retail therapy.

Exit 1 (NH) - Spit Brook Road / Daniel Webster Highway, Nashua

The Daniel Webster Highway (US Route 3) is concentrated retail for about a mile. Anchored by the Pheasant Lane Mall there are super-sized grocery, home improvement and many national brand stores.
Fun World (10 - 2+ Hours) - An oversized arcade, with excellent staffing, several rides, a super-sized 3-story indoor playground, and a VERY reasonable snack bar, makes this a great spot for your kids to blow off some steam.

SkyVenture (10 - 90 Minutes) - Indoor skydiving and surfing. Not for families on a serious budget, this place is amazing. View their site and videos, and call ahead for possible reservations and more information, pricing, etc.

Exit 4 - E. Dunstable Road, Nashua

Taking E. Dunstable Road northeast will intersect with Main Street, the southern end of Main Street's effective retail corridor, mostly mom and pops.

Exit 5B - Ledge Street, Nashua

Caution: Exit 5B is off of Exit 5 and is accessible to north bound traffic only.
Mine Falls Park (10 - 30 Minutes to 2 Hours) - Ball fields, fishing, and an attractive canal walk with occasional picnic tables. Good spot to see waterfowl and turtles. Bicycle friendly. Portable toilets on ball field. SEASONAL

Exit 6 - Broad Street, Nashua

West of the exit is a large-ish shopping center with a handful of abutting stand alone restaurants, including Denny's, open 24 hours. Be sure to see the back side of the shopping center for even more shopping opportunities.
Chunky's Cinema Pub (5 - 2+ Hours) - A multi-screen theater with table-side seating on reclining tall-backed chairs. Chunky's features pub food and great desserts, mostly around $8-15 a plate. Arrive a minimum of 45 minutes before show time for good seating (1 hour for blockbusters).

National Fish Hatchery (3 - 1 Hour) - The facility supports Atlantic salmon and American shad restoration in the Merrimack and other rivers, and produces millions of fry annually. Visiting hours are 8:00am to 4:00pm daily, reservations recommended, 603-595-0891.

Exit 7 - Route 101A / Amherst Street, Nashua

Route 101A NW begins another heavy retail area, about 4 miles of sometimes concentrated, sometimes disbursed shopping centers, big box stores and mom and pops. Route 101A SE (Amherst Street) will bring you back to Main Street, a healthy retail area, mostly small mom and pops.
Leda Lanes (5 - 1+ Hours) - Open 9am midnight 7 days a week for candlepin bowling, plus Leda's Lighthouse, a completely separate glow bowling area that the kids will enjoy.

 Joey's Diner (15 - 1 Hour) - A MUST SEE... Be transported back into the 50's. Authentic 50's seating, memorabilia and music. We believe it to be the best 50's period restaurant in New England. Good food as well.

Exit 10 - Industrial Drive, Merrimack

Anheuser-Busch Brewery Tours (10 - 1+ Hours) - Enjoy seeing how the famous brand is brewed and packaged and learn about their world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales when you visit the Clydesdale Hamlet.
