Really good seafood! My fav is the clams. And if you like ice cream, this is a double hitter for you! Eat and have your dessert when you leave or just stop by for some quick treat!

The place to get pizza with a bar. Ask for George (the bartender) and tell him we sent you. He's a great guy to talk to! This is a long time establishment in town that changed buildings and has expanded.

This place has been here as long as I can remember (which is a long time!). Situated overlooking the Contoocook, it is warm and inviting. I love the view!! It is an old building with lots of beautiful wood. Expect uneven, creaking floors with just is a testament to its age. They cover just about everything including events and live music.

The caboose! Another all time favorite I have been going to for a gazillion years. I haven't gone of late unfortunately however I hear they close for renos and recently reopened. This place is delightful! The food was always generous, hot and reasonably prices. They used to do all their breads too ( I hope they still do!). Check it out and let me know what you think!

A farm to table restaurant located in Colby Inn. This restaurant changed names a while back in case you have been to Colby before. Added perk? Grab some 'goat food' upon leaving and go feed the goats in the barn!

A college town with a small town feel! Some great restaurants including the Grazing Room, Daniels and the Intervale Pancake House. Henniker is known as the only Henniker on earth (there is a little research for you!) and descendents of George Washington too. It's been called the North Conway of the South! Check out their summer concert series and their Farmers market. There are shops to check out like The Old #6 Book Depot and Quilted Thread. Visit the covered bridge and the Henniker Brewing Co. Of course there is Pat's Peak for events and skiing too!! Close by is the Deering Wildlife Sanctuary as well.

Just a cool place to visit! Lots to see and do. There is Bowling Acres which is a 10 lane candlepin bowling experience with an arcade and grill. There are several State Parks including Temple Mountain, Miller and Edward MacDowell for picnicking, hiking, boating and more. Lots of neat shops for antiquing and boutiquing too! Check out Ava Marie Chocolates, Monadnock Oil & Vinegars for specialty items. Peterborough Basket is the rival to Longaberger and offer a wide variety of baskets, liners and protectors. There is the Peterborough Players, a Community Theater and Sharon Arts. Hungry? Lots of restaurants including the vintage Peterborough Diner! You can pretty much walk around most of this town. It's darling!

Once home to a dozen stone arch bridges, there are now only 5 remaining in Hillsborough. Each of these bridges are in place with the original stones and held together without the use of any mortar/cement. A lovely drive can let you see all of them, very near to each other on Gleason Falls Road, Beard Road and Jones Rd. A wonderful place to picnic, with waterfalls and an old swimming hole is nearby. Historic and beautifully constructed, these bridges offer excellent photographic opportunities (and perhaps a dip in the old swimming hole on a scorching summer day)
