Porcupine Real Estate clients Mike & Debbie had been entertaining the idea of moving to the Free State for a few years.  Mike's best friend & Army buddy, Jess Edwards, had been sending him information on the Free State Project and reasons why they should make the move.

After reading more about the FSP and talking with Jess, Mike & Debbie decided to move from their home in California. Mike created a list of the top five reasons for their move: 

1. Leaving the Nanny State behind - As much as they enjoyed the California weather, the state seemed determined to continue reducing individual liberty and stealing from everyone to advance leftist agendas and projects, from ludicrous handgun legislation to regulating the amount of dust from farming.

2. Taxes - Since New Hampshire has neither income nor sales tax, Mike & Debbie will save around 15 cents on every dollar. With being retired, this is a big savings.

3. Family - The couple's children & grandchildren live in Virginia and Maryland, so moving closer to them was appealing.

4. People - The people in the FSP really want to make a difference, and the political activism was energizing to Mike & Debbie. They liked the forums for information on how they can advance individual liberty and have enjoyed the friendliness of the people in the movement. 

5. Friends - Moving closer to Mike's best friend was icing on the cake!

Mike & Debbie found a house in Manchester, only 7 miles from Jess & his wife. They love the area because of the variety of shopping and things to do, and they like that it's small enough to not have big city problems, such as traffic. 

Welcome home, Mike & Debbie.

Sometimes, it can be hard to figure out where to go with your kids for an educational experience. However, in Manchester, there are plenty of options! Here are our favorite museums and learning centers for you and your children:

SEE Science Center - There’s a reasonable entrance fee of $9, and with that, you can access all the hands-on science-centered activities, including a moonwalk exhibit, and a LEGO replica of Manchester’s millyard, along with many other fun activities.

- Currier Museum of Art - This museum is fun for all ages - there is a wide variety of art, from European to modern to New Hampshire-based art. They have new exhibitions every few months, including a Mount Washington exhibit and an Artist Studios in New Hampshire exhibit. Kids will love to try to sketch what they see, and there are plenty of programs for everyone, including storytime and art classes.

- Amoskeag Fishways - If your child loves marine life, you might want to plan a visit to the Amoskeag Fishways. The center offers plenty of learning opportunities, including exhibits about the Merrimack River and an interactive watershed exhibit. There are also a variety of programs for all age groups, including several homeschool programs, and family fun nights where you can learn about owls and dissect an owl pellet.

Aviation Museum of New Hampshire - Just outside of Manchester lies this great museum. Kids will have a chance to sit in cockpits and use a flight simulator. Aviator buffs and kids alike will have a blast!
