  • Ashuelot River

    The rapids here are amazing. The river almost sucked Sarah into it's depths. Actually it tried to eat Chris as well. There was an adorable little crazy man who stood on the rocks above the river and was watching us. No but it was really fun. The water was quite clean and refreshing.

Keene Restaurants

  • Gas, Food and Laundry

    We went through Princeton, and Troy NH. I was looking for a place to eat (and use the bathroom) but it was so rural that there wasn't anything. Finally when we got to Keene, I saw a Subway sign and we pulled in. It turned out to be a carry-out only, but there were bathrooms and we could also have done a wash if we had wanted to. :) as it was the...

  • Panini, Belgian Fries, and Lambic

    A relatively new Keene establishment, Fritz has quickly become one of our favorite lunch stops. The fries are wonderful, there is always a great selection of paninis if you feel the need for something a bit healthier, and the beer menu is unique. They have Stella Artois on tap and bottled Unibroues, Ommegang Abbey Ale, Hennepin, and Lindemans...


Keene Nightlife

  • Twenty One Bar and Grill: Greatful Dead drink

    by wah_keen Written Jun 29, 2006

    Sarah, Chris, and I went to Twenty One Bar and Grill and had a drink. The waitress was really great, very quick and friendly. I had a drink called a Grateful Dead. I have no idea what was in it but it was strong and made me quite drunken.

    Dress Code: casual

Keene Local Customs

  • If you are polite to the local...

    If you are polite to the local law enforcement, they will let you go on your way - as long as it is out of their way. My nitemare in New Hampshire ended with me catching my date in the act of....well it was pretty vulgar to see - and so I packed quickly to just leave. I was driving my car, threw my bags into the trunk where I happened upon the dates things - a CD collection worth about $500, really nice clothes, etc. Well, quite frankly I wasn't hauling it all back home with me - so I threw it all in the street, in the snow, making sure I cracked every CD as I tossed. And then the police came - some report of a crazed woman tossing garbage in the street. Here is where the politeness comes in - I simply explained that the items in the street didn't belong to me , that the owner could fetch them when he got his pants on and that I was leaving New Hampshire - never to return; the police very kindly wished me a safe trip home.

    by ranting Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: Not exactlty the tourist capital of the country, ya know. The only reason I was in Keene was because the guy I was dating wanted to go home for Christmas - so I tagged along to see New England, you know - a covered bridge or two. Ok - so the trees, nice. Fresh air, good. The people though - quite rude and unattracive actually. read on - it gets better.

    Fondest memory: One week in which I would find out the guy I was dating was a complete stranger, snow is only pretty for about 20 mintues, meeting new people is not a favored pastime among the locals - nor is courtesy. And the image of my date cheating on me - on the living room carpet no less, with the girl who is just 'his best friend' is burned into my retnas. I neeed never go back to New Hampshire - I've seen it all.
