Mack's Apples

Reviewed By MeganZopf - Fitzwilliam, New Hampshire

I stopped by to get some apples and fresh vegetables a couple of days ago. I was more interested in the vegetable than the apples, however my daughter did buy apples and pie. I bought some green peppers and I decided to buy a homemade chicken pot pie that was frozen. I was told by one of the employees they were delicious so I took her word. I bought the one that had peas and carrots because some do not. It is labeled as Aristocrat Chicken Pot Pie White Meat With Peas and Carrots. Let me tell you it is about as close to homemade as you can get! It was a perfect meal and delicious! I'll make a trip back before the season is over to buy a couple more. I am sorry this review is more about the pie than apple picking. I have picked apples there in previous years though. The homemade pie my daughter bought was also delicious. It had the crumb top verses crust but it was good. This was also frozen and had to be cooked. I recommend stopping by before the season is over!

We toured the brewery and spent time at the horse stables. Very knowledgeable staff and the horses are a must see! The gift shop has a lot of really neat things also. Time well spent. Glad we took the time to visit.

Benson Park

Reviewed By Lauralanglois - Hudson, New Hampshire

Best local place to go cross country running. With just enough trails to get 5m in and enough variety to keep you from getting bored, Bensons is a winner! Lots of different terrain, from woods to field, to marshland, it's a fantastic place to walk,
Picnic, fish or just explore.

High 5 Ballooning

Reviewed By tripman539 - Boston, Massachusetts

Excellent adventure from start to finish. When you take a flight with High 5 Ballooning, you will quickly get the impression that Tony Sica [owner and pilot] runs his business with one question in mind; “If a were a client, what would define the perfect flight experience for me? As it is with most things in life, it is the small things, the little details that matter, from a clearly enthusiastic pilot, to having the balloon chasers taking photographs from the ground along the way, to the nice picnic at the end in a nice, scenic area.

As a person who has flown in balloons many times over the years in different locales and varied conditions, Tony is at the top of the list. He will work with you to make your flight experience a memorable one. From my experience, there are two kinds of people who provide a good or service: Those who do their job and those who do their job well. Tony certainly fits the latter category and is the consummate professional from start to finish. Thanks, Tony <and Chase Crew>!

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.

Canobie Lake Park

Canobie Lake Park in Salem, New Hampshire has over 85 Rides, Games, Live Entertainment and Attractions, including our wild roller coaster, UNTAMED!

Reviewed By John D - Manchester, New Hampshire

Canobie is a nice example of an old fashioned park. It’s popular with locals and even crowded at times. Once you’ve seen Disney, six flags, or Universal, it’s tough to go but it’s cute; quaint really. It has boat rides on the lake and a tiny train running through the park. It has water rides and a decent coaster.

Moonlight Meadery

Reviewed By bellamh - Lunenburg, Massachusetts

My wife and I stopped by today for the tour and tasting, and it was fantastic. The owner took us on the tour, and the passion he has for the business really showed. He was very knowledgeable, and kept it interesting.

The tour included a tasting, we were able to sample seven different meads, which were delicious! He explained the flavors of all the varieties he had, and you got to choose which ones you wanted to try. We also got a keepsake glass, and if we come back with the glasses, we get a free tasting, which is great! We'll definitely be back!

Robert Frost Farm State Historic Site

Farm where Frost lived, raised his children and wrote.

Reviewed By NewHampshiretraveler - Exeter, NH

Very simple "museum". The house where Robert Frost is now alongside a busy road. The barn hosts the "museum" which is really just a spot to watch some videos on RF and look at some family portraits and tools. Inside, a plain, white clapboard house...that shows some of the artifacts of the early 1900s when the family lived there. They had relocated to England then Franconia...and the property was a "junk yard" for decades, until the park service took it over and restored the property to its original appearance. You can do this in less than an a hour. A good stop for teachers, history buffs and readers of literature and poetry.

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.
