Everything good about New England... foliage, friendly welcomes, crafts, maple syrup, the great outdoors

Not bad as a stop off point or a base for the surrounding area.
Local football good enough to play on Sunday
This "tongue in cheek" comment will probably only be understood by Americans, so let me explain....Sunday is generally the day in the fall that PROFESSIONAL football (the NFL) plays its games. When a college or high school player is very very good, it's often said "he'll...
Be a leaf peeper....
One of THE biggest tourist draws to New Hampshire and New England is the annual fall foliage explosion of colors. Huge dollars are made in the tourist industry, catering to what the locals call "the peepers", as in "leaf peepers". These are folks who slide into the area to...

Moat Mountain Smoking House & Brewing Co.: what a BBQ!
Breathtaking BBQ in a simple but friendly ambience, very kind and attentive service, outstanding beers, as they brew by theirself. The choice of beers is really huge and BBQ was great. Moreover, the waiter suggested us to order just one portion because it was enough for both...
Red Parka Steakhouse & Pub: "Good food & good times" is their motto.
After our day on the train we picked a place to go to eat that would be close to the condo and would be a short drive afterward. So looking thru the restaurant guide, we picked the Red Parka in Glen which was right down the street from Bartlett. We made a good choice. We...

If you enjoy a good cup of coffee, you'll have zero problem finding solutions in North Conway. Let me recommend highly the place we stopped during our little shopping adventure - the Met Coffeehouse. Located on the main road through town, and just abeam the Kankamagus Scenic...
The Ghoullog: Fight or flight at the Ghoullog
On a cold night around Halloween time be sure to get your blood going into the world of the deathly horror of Ghoullog. It is a maze of rooms where all kinds of creatures, dead and alive, try to scare the living wits out of you. But stay strong and they will back off and you...

Snow, Snow, Snow!
Well, let's just say that it snows alot in New Hampshire. Please be prepared at all times to drive in snow. And remember even if you have 4 Wheel Drive, that doesnt mean you have 4 Wheel Stop! So be careful driving in snow.
Go and shop in New Hempshire!
In New Hempshire, no taxes are to be paid on clothes until 176 usd, since it is considered "first necessity" item. Please note that, on North Conway main street, you can find a plenty of outlets, many of them similar to Freeport's and Kittery's ones. But you do not have to...
The Handcrafters' Barn: Lots of local crafts
There are many shops in and around North Conway that feature local craftsmen and artists' work. One of the most-well stocked would be the Handcrafters' Barn, just a bit south of North Conway village center. The barn is - in fact - one building with a basement, ground floor...
White Birch Books: A well-regarded (by the industry) indy bookstore
Primarily in my life, I've been a healthcare professional. However, my post-retirement occupations have tended more towards the publishing industry. For approximately one year, I was marketing director for an up and coming independent publishing house, Behler Publications....
The Bavarian Chocolate Haus: Eines gutes Platz für Schokolade
Excellent homemade chocolate - the food of the Gods.There's a nice little chocolate candies shop at the southern edge of North Conway. It's called the Bavarian Chocolate Haus, and from the moment you clear the door and hear the alpine music and smell the chocolates, you'll...
Zeb's General Store: "Moose Products" to Maple Syrup
Zeb's - much in the same way as the North Conway 5 and 10 cent store - is a blast from the past. In days gone by, small villages became small towns when they could boast a good "General Store" within their midst. A general store was a place that sold most of the essentials...
Real Yankees do Say "Ayuh"
Yea, some people do actually say "Ayuh" - Ive been known to say it myself from time to time.Please dont tease us New Hampshire-ites because of the way we talk! I know it's tempting though!ha ha ha
Route 16 Outlets
Oh ya, the outlets along Route 16 can be considered a tourist trap as well. It's certainly a pain to drive thru in stop & go traffic all the way thru town!
Park and walk from store to store along the way. Stop & eat while your at it, LOL.
The summit of Mount Washington
This July day began with sunny skies and a temperature of above 80 degrees. At the summit, the temperature registered somewhere in the 40s and light rain fell. When you hear that the conditions on Mount Washington can change dramatically, believe it.
This was supposed to be a shortcut and an easier way down. But the entire mountain is covered in those dreaded rocks. I know this is the granite state, but is it too much to ask for to find a dirt trail?Again, I am kidding. This little segue lead to a cool area within the...
