Portland and Manchester, NH, might compete in 2008 over the Red Sox affiliation
Portland and Manchester, NH, might compete in 2008 over the Red Sox affiliation with the Portland Sea Dogs. Manchester has experienced strong growth, has the low-fare airline Southwest Airlines (although Portland just landed jetBlue), is half Portland's distance to Boston, larger in size, has the new Verizon Wireless Arena, and is in a tax-free state. Although Manchester has grown beyond its mill-town legacy, it doesn't have Portland's natural amenities, like Casco Bay and the coast.
