Get Away, Sight-see, and Relax in Southern New Hampshire.

June, 2011 (Photos from Early Spring)

If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, I suggest you take a trip and stay a while in Southern (/Southwestern) New Hampshire. In this region there is plenty of inspiring scenery and interesting villages, hamlets, cities and towns to explore. Also, there are plenty of enjoyable day trips over fun-to-drive scenic routes in the area - check out some of the wineries, farm stores, and water-ways along the way. I also suggest you have lunch and go for a walk in downtown Manchester and/or Keene. Reasonable rates for lodging accommodations are often to be had during off-season at several of the many ski resorts. The people in this region are friendly, open, and appear to welcome tourists. If you have time, you can also make an excursion to Northern Massachusetts or across the Connecticut River to Vermont. Again, Southern New Hampshire is an enjoyable place to spend some time in a serene and low-hassle environment.
