Manchester Connecticut: Shops, Beer and Grub!

I actually like Manchester. It's definitely a working-class community; however, the city is undergoing some renovations which is really bringing some curb appeal to the downtown area. One of the best areas in Manchester is the Buckland Hill Mall Center. They have all of your common stores like JCPenney, American Eagle, Footlocker, Bath and Body Works, and many more. There’s also the Funny Bone comedy club if you’re looking for a good laugh. There’s not a ton to do as far as nightlife, but you can fill your time with a selection of breweries, restaurants, and the new talk-of-the-town Dave & Buster’s. If you have more expensive taste, you may want to wonder east two miles into the adjacent town, South Windsor, and visit the upscale outdoor mall, Evergreen Walk. Airbnb is growing in popularity in Manchester, so if you’re thinking of dropping by to give it a try, you can find exceptional rates that will rival any nearby motel or hotel.
