Monadnock State Park is home to regionally famous, 3,165-foot Mount Monadnock. Under two hours from Boston and about one hour from Nashua, NH, Monadnock is the world's second most climbed mountain, after Mount Fuji. The park contains 40 miles of trails, many leading to the mountain's peak.
As you approach the top of Monadnock, the thick woods gradually give way to an alpine environment, then finally a bare rocky peak. In the winter, it can be 40 degrees and sunny at the bottom, but windy, icy and frigid at the top, so dress appropriately.
On a clear day you can see 100 miles in each direction, into all six New England states!
Admission is $3.

Jasper's is owned by a man named Jeff, who is passionate about wine..actually, passionate about anything he talks about. He makes his own wine and also sells kits and is eager to share his knowledge with you. They also have a great selection of hard to find beers and even coffee's roasted right in NH. It's good to see an independant business man so completely knowledgable and passionate about his work. Rumor has it Jeff has grape stomping parties every September.

The Nashua Pride baseball team plays in the independant leagues and is comprised of young kids, wanna-bes, and has-beens. They combine to form a hard playing & fun-to-watch team that has been entertaining Nashua since 1998.
They play at historic Holman Stadium that was built in the 1940s, and was greatly remodeled in 1998. Holman stadium was also the home field of black catcher Roy Campanella and black pitcher Don Newcombe when they were still minor leaguers in a newly-desegregated sport.
I took my parents to a game on 2 July 2002, on what had to have been the hottest day of the year. Just sitting in the stands we were sweating. I think the temp hovered about 100 degrees Farenheit that day!

The Saturday after Thanksgiving has become the day that Nashuans gather to celebrate the start of the December holiday season. Main Street is closed off and decked out in lights, street vendors, and ice sculptures.
The main event is the stroll to the lighting of the Christmas tree. Everyone in the crowd takes a candles and strolls up Main Street toward the tree. It is quite an impressive spectacle.
After the stroll you can stop at the local establishments and enjoy local entertainers. You can typically hear a barbershop quartet, listen to a storyteller, catch a comedy routine, see a magic show, watch a dance performance, or catch a short play.
It's good, wholesome, community fun. Something that's hard to come by these days.

Sled at Roby park. If you are staying with friends or family, and there is more than two inches of snow on the ground, have them take you to Roby park to go sledding. Great for kids! I recommend a snow-tube or saucer. The hill is lighted at night, so don't skip it just because you think it is too late! Some of the better sledding takes place at night, actually, when the snow starts to get icy.
Free fun! If you come from somewhere without snow, this is something you should try. It's more reckless than going snow-tubing at a mountain. :)
