Though this may just look like a convenience store, Big Dave has won many awards for his homemade bagels. Not only do they have all types of creative breakfast sandwiches, they serve lunch as well. They also have gluten free wraps! Covid- you can’t order inside but they have an app you order from and then just go pick it up. You can pre-order and pick the time you want.

This place is VERY popular for Breakfast- we tend to avoid it because of the tourist crowds, but they do go for a reason! Have gluten-free options. COVID- double check hours, they are still open at limited capacity.

Lunch pick! Want to know what’s way better than Chipotle? This place! Similar concept but homemade and more original. Great & fast when you’re starving after a hike or skiing. The line can get long so go on their website and order ahead for pick-up. Add on the pickled onions & ask for a side of their dressing, you will thank us later.

The pictures don’t reflect why we go here- we actually go to their market for breakfast or lunch! Go early and get FRESH AND HOT apple cider donuts. Also have apple fritters, sandwiches, bakery items. Cute market too with made on-site frozen items, local ciders, etc.

You may not think to get Italian while you’re here, but this place is a must stop! Amazing Gluten Free options! Pro tip- they get crazy busy on the weekend nights (and most nights honestly)- so go right when they open or towards the end of the night. If not, you may be waiting an hour or two for a table. COVID- recently added online ordering for take-out but it’s closed many nights, so your best bet is to make a reservation for a table from their website. They book out a couple weeks in advance normally.

Since this place has opened it has been SLAMMED! People love this place, not just for the beer but for the BBQ/ food, too. Covid- in winter seating is limited so you may wait in line. In warmer months they have a HUGE outdoor seating area. If you get take-out be sure to ask about the beer selection and take some home!

Great local place for groceries, and they have a deli/cafe where you can get awesome breakfast & lunch to eat there or to go. Awesome smoothies, and freshly made juices. Specializing in gluten free, vegan, and all around healthy food. A little pricey but worth it if you want the healthiest of foods. COVID- double check their hours for the deli- not open everyday

Sightseeing
Popular spots to see, especially for first-timers. Bring $5 bills for parking/fees (only at some places). Keep in mind peak seasons and plan ahead (go on off times like really early in the morning, or get tickets far in advanced especially for the Cog or Tubing).
Great short and flat walk, maybe 15 minutes total. You end at beautiful waterfalls on rocks where you can sit on picnic tables or lounge around on the rocks. Bring $5 cash to park! Covid- this place gets SLAMMED with cars lined up down the road to get in. Get their SUPER early to avoid the crowds.

A short 10 minute walk to arrive at this amazing waterfall. After parking, go down & to the left under the bridge, then an immediate right. Note- it’s an easy walk, but steep, with lots of stairs, and gets slippery during Spring/Fall.

Tickets sell out VERY quickly, and they’re only open in January and February so get your tickets quick. Note- this is about a 1 hr and 15 min drive from our place. The fastest way a GPS will say to go is over the Kangamangus Highway but this is closed in the winter, so please go the 93 route instead!

Hiking & Trails
Please keep in mind the level of difficulty is hard for us to determine, as everyone has a different skill set. We recommend using the app “AllTrails” to look up the trails before going, which will give you a more in-depth description of the difficulty, and what to be prepared with.
This is behind our townhouse in the backyard :) just go to the middle of the backyard and there is a path straight to the back woods. Super easy and flat! There’s multiple trails back there. Pro tip- download the app “Trailforks” and it has all the trails back there. It’s virtual so you can see where you are at on the trails. This picture was taken from the end of the “Railroad” trail

Great for beginners (that are fine walking up hill for 30-45 min) and great views on top. Make sure to wear proper shoes there’s a lot of pebbles towards the top. When you get to the fork it will say black cap summit to the left, BUT go to the right and it will loop around to the summit with much better views and an easier, less rocky path.

Intermediate level hike with great views on top. A lot of beginners try this, you can do it if you’re a beginner but only if you are in good walking shape. Many boulders if you take the right trail so just be aware and where proper footwear.

This trail is SUPER popular with tourists. Tallest waterfall in NH. Beginners try it but keep in mind it’s straight up hill for over an hour. We saw a lot of people give up halfway when we did it. You won’t have views from the top just the waterfall. The water level is dependent on the season and how much water we’ve had in the area. Spring will have the best water flow from the melted snow. If you love waterfalls it’s great- we actually like more of a view so felt this wasn’t worth the hike. But it is popular!
