LaBelle Winery

Reviewed By glitterqueen1975 - Tiverton, Rhode Island

Fantastic winery with a great ambiance. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. LaBelle is pretty big into fruit wines from dry to sweet. No matter your palette, LaBelle will put a smile on your face! The dessert wines are remarkable

Monson Center

Reviewed By David F - Southern New Hampshire

Old 1700 ghost town somewhat hidden on the town lines of Milford/Hollis. We have lived in the area since the mid-1070s and never knew it was nearby. Went today and the stone walls and open fields were spectacular. Hard to believe that it was almost lost to homesites. Luckily it was taken over by the town and the Society for NH Forets.Great old home cellars all market with whose home it was. Really nice spot for a long, quiet dog walk. I also found out that handicapped visitors are the only ones allowed to drive into the center rather than walk in. Once in though a walk is necessary for all

Town Hall Theatre

Reviewed By FootTourist

The Wilton Town Hall Theater dates back to the days of vaudeville and silent film. In fact they still regularly showcase the best of the silent era. Basically it is a City Arts Cinema programming in the scenic hills of NH. The programmer rips your ticket and welcomes your input. A historic treasure not to be missed. I travel several times a year from south eastern Massachusetts to experience this venue and it is always worth the trip.

Mont Vernon General Store

Reviewed By BartMilford_NH - Milford, NH

We often cycle by this store and it's great that it's open again. They have a more upscale selection that if it were closer I'd use for take out. Very nice that they have a portapotty outside.

Reviewed By Arch L

This is our fav farm! My son loves the cows, rabbits, chickens and goats. He enjoys feeding them. We love the beautiful flowers and the produce. It's such a great effort to support the local farms even though they may be a bit more pricey. We love the huge weeping willows and apple trees. It's a great place to visit.

Tee Off at Mel's

Batting cages, go-karts, miniature golf, driving range, arcade & diner.

Reviewed By NHmama23 - Nashua, New Hampshire

Stopped in and had a blast today. We had a Groupon so that saved us quite a bit. Mini golf was fantastic. The course was fun and they keep it up well. Batting cages are on, ours was not working properly but after a while the teenager working them realized and tried to fix it. Go carts were also lots of fun. They do have ice cream. It's Giffords. Great quality but really overpriced. We packed our own lunch and saved a few bucks there. This place is worth checking out.

Reviewed By edfc - Connecticut

This outlet is arranged as 2 long strips of stores with a food court area in the center. There is a good selection of stores but the prices don't seem to be any less than any other store. It is located just off Route 3 and parking is good even on a large holiday shopping weekend.
