Take Route 3 (Everett Turnpike) to Exit 7E, “Nashua/Downtown.” Bear right off the exit (it’s the only direction to go) and go straight through a set of lights. Stay straight. You will drive up a hill and then down to another light (next to a cemetery on the left). Keep staying straight. You will pass another light with a school and a baseball stadium on your left. Stay straight. Once you pass a blinking light near a fire station on the left, you will be very close to downtown. Stay to the right and bear right into downtown at the light. Stay in the left-hand lane. At the third set of lights in downtown, take a left onto Temple Street (there is a big, brick building called the Landmark Building with blue awnings on the corner of Main Street and Temple Street on the left).
