The capital of New Hampshire is Concord. Here, you will find the State House, where liberty lovers in office go to do their best to scale back the state and let freedom reign supreme. In fact, the gold dome of the State House can be seen from many different places in and around Concord and serves as a beacon of liberty for the residents of NH.
With its quaint, picturesque downtown area lined with "mom & pop" small businesses, New Hampshire's capital has something for everyone. There are bakeries, restaurants, bars, breweries, coffee shops, brunch spots, a popular bagle place, a consignment store, multiple home and furniture shops, ann excellent cooking store, bookstores, a grocery co-op, an independent movie theater, multiple ice cream and sweet shops, a performing arts theater, and there's even a hidden speakeasy... if you know where to find it.
Saturday mornings really come alive in Concord with the weekly Farmers Market where you can find everything from local wine to homemade doughnuts. The market features dozens of stalls across multiple blocks and will surely be a regular part of your Saturday routine.
After the Farmers Market and some brunch, head over to Area 23, our local Free Stater owned brew bar and have yourself a hazy NEIPA and a bowl of bacon. Stay while for some live music, a round of pool, or a friendly board game. Be sure to check the FSP Calendar for regular Free State meetups and events.
Concord is well situated in the center of the state with convenient access to other liberty community centers, liberty meetups, and regular FSP events. You're about an hour from anywhere in the state wether it be the Seacoast, the Communist Republic of Keene, the beautiful Lakes Region, or Costco!
