Visiting the Monadnock Region of NH?
Here's what you need to know!

The Monadnock Region of NH is attractive, peaceful and quiet. There are numerous parks and open spaces, covered bridges, and ample outdoor recreation, but very few 'destination' attractions, Mount Monadnock being a notable exception.

Located on the southwest side of the state, the area's commerce is derived principally from the presence of Keene State College, retail sales magnified by sales tax hating Vermonters and Bay Staters, and some agriculture & tourism.

The area has a credible and lively arts presence driven by the college and generous corporate sponsors. Lodging is easily had in Keene but sparse elsewhere. Restaurants can generally be found throughout the area but menus are disproportionately American comfort foods. Camping is abundant and reasonably priced, especially at state parks. The area hosts many hiking trails. The best spot to shop locally made merchandise is probably the Hanna Grimes Marketplace.

Aside from live performances or festival attendance, visits to the Cathedral of the Pines, Mt. Monadnock, or a drive to the summit of Pack Monadnock via Miller State Park are the best bets for cherished life long memories. If you are a flower enthusiast, enjoy walks, and tolerate mosquitoes well, you'll also delight in visiting Rhododendron State Park. And please, we are not kidding about the mosquitoes.
