May/June visit
« on: April 14, 2015, 03:09:10 pm »

We have finally arranged our schedule for a visit. Now the planning begins. We want to explore as much as possible so any must sees or dos? And suggestions in cool/unknown places to stay, eat, play? We will be there for about a month and hope to make it to Porcfest for a least a few days. 

Thanks in advanced for the help!

Hello Sarah,
Did you already visit? I am planning on visiting in August/September during a festival there and am really looking forward to going.  Just checking to see if you went already or not and where you went. :)

I recommend staying at PorcFest as much as possible.

If you are in Keene or Manchester on a Sunday other than PorcFest, stop by the weekly 6pm meetups.  Keene has a nice main street. Elm St, not far from where the Manchester Sunday meetup happens, is also nice.

There are cool things in that area.
The Weeks State Park fire tower is in Lancaster. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g46272-d116562-Reviews-Weeks_State_Park-Whitefield_New_Hampshire.html
Santa's Village is only a few miles away. http://www.santasvillage.com/

Littleton is south of Lancaster. It has Chutters - The World's Longest Candy Counter. The whole Littleton main street is cool.

Take the cog up Mt. Washington. http://www.thecog.com/

Laconia has two great family attractions right next to each other.
Funspot - Funspot is the largest arcade in the world, founded in 1952 by Bob Lawton who still works here every day. Funspot provides quality entertainment in an atmosphere right for the whole family and its array of fun is continually growing. Funspot offers over 600 games, including 300 classic arcade games, a 20 lane ten pin & candlepin bowling center, cash bingo, indoor mini-golf, a restaurant, a tavern and more!
Monkey Trunks - http://monkeytrunks.com/

Hooksett has IMAX http://cinemagicmovies.com/loc_Hookset.asp , an ice skating arena http://tri-townicearena.com/ , and a Bass Pro.

Nashua has a make your own soda or beer store, an indoor surfing and sky diving place, a decent arcade, a large mall, Whole Foods and a nice park trail in the urban part of the city.

If you are going to head to Boston for a couple days, you might want to stop off at these fun attractions in Salem, NH on the way.
American Stonehenge http://stonehengeusa.com/?redirect=false
Canobie Lake Park http://www.canobie.com/
There is also gambling in Salem. http://www.rockinghampark.com/

Beer tour the state. http://nhbeerbus.com/

If you are near the coast, drive up route 1A for a few hours. Stop to enjoy the water, have a lobster roll, or eat ice cream. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Hampshire_Route_1A

If you are into history, go to New Castle and check out the old forts. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Castle,_New_Hampshire
