I would love to show you around Manchester but I will be on my Honeymoon.
(we just moved the dates)
I'm sure you can find good people to show you around Manchvegas.
Just so you know Manchester reminds me of the suburbs of northern New Jersey. It is going to have a town feel to anyone used to large cites. It does have good selection of ethnic food restaurants and ethnic grocery stores.
Parking is much easier than most cites. You will want a car in NH. Manchester is the only place you could get a way without a car. It is still hard.
Shopping is harder up here. They have most things up here. The only problem it is only one store has it in the whole state and it isn't near anywhere you need to go. Selection in stores tends to be smaller up here too. No sales tax is great and the internet has anything you can't find. Also since most things are sold by small local the customer service is friendly and some what slower than what you find in large cities. (The slowness drives my New Yorker sister nuts along with the lack of good pizza)
Manchester is by far the safest city I have lived in. (NYC, Jersey City, DC, Richmond VA) I say this living in the "worst" neighbourhood in Manchester.
Things to do and check out in NH while you are here.http://www.nhliving.com/events/oct.shtml
There are a bunch of fairs and festivals listed here. You will be in NH during the prettiest part of fall. It is also a busy tourist season.
The Deerfield fair is oldest in the country and a lot of fun.
The Warner fall foliage festival is in a really cute small town whithe the only real NYC style pizza I have found in this state. Charlie Macs is the pizza place in Warner.
October 10th and 11th is the gun show in Manchester. Second Amendment Sisters will have a table there. These are really interesting if you have never been to a gun show. It will be at the Raddison hotel on Elm Street in Manchester.
I would also recommend joining libertyladies.org This is ladies group here in NH. Good people who can also help with your visit to NH.
