New Hampshire | MONADNOCK REGION

Monadnock
Region

<<

Away from the hubbub of New Hampshire’s cities and
the quiet grandness of the Granite State’s North Country, rests the
Monadnock Region, dotted with stunning natural landscapes,
charming storefronts along quaint downtown streets and
clapboard churches that give artists ample reason to capture
its essence on canvas. In the span of just one day (with a little
advanced planning), you can climb one of the most popular
mountains in the world, shop ’til you drop for souvenirs both
old and new, take in a theatrical performance and – when
you’ve worked up an appetite – indulge in homemade
chocolate or cheese. The best part? No matter the time
of year, there are always plenty of chances to enjoy the
rich culture and activity in this part of the state – from a
round of golf in spring or concert at the Keene gazebo
in summer, to photographing covered bridges with
an autumn backdrop and strapping on snowshoes
and hitting the trails in winter. And fairs, festivals and special events round
out the Monadnock Region’s calendar with food, fun and good finds.

WORTH THE CLIMB!

The world’s third most-climbed mountain,
following Japan’s Mount Fuji and China’s Mount
Tai, is in the small town of Jaffrey. At 3,165 feet,
Mount Monadnock boasts more than 40 miles
of maintained foot trails and climbers can glimpse
every New England state from the summit.
Route 124, Jaffrey. www.nhstateparks.org

PLACE OF PEACE

If you’re longing for a little tranquility, look
no further than the Cathedral of the Pines
in Rindge. Stroll the grounds of this serene
gathering place, which features chapels,
outdoor sanctuaries and gardens, or take in a
panoramic view of Mount Monadnock.

KEEN ON KEENE

Mother and daughter love the Keene
gazebo. Located in the heart of the
Monadnock Region, the iconic structure
sits right in the middle of downtown Keene.
In fall, the gazebo is surrounded by jacko’-lanterns at the Pumpkin Festival. In the
winter, Christmas lights adorn the gazebo.
