Currier Museum of Art

Reviewed By PhDRN

The contextual components explaining Saint Gaudens work both visually and through interpretive signage were fabulous. The full bust studies of Shaw and some of the soldiers were worth the visit alone- if you, like I, love the Bronze relief of Shaw and the 52nd Massachusetts Regiment, this section of the exhibit is worth the visit alone.

Visitors are able to get close to the exhibited sculptures and examine the stunning work. Plaster casts juxtaposed with bronze castings allows for some comparison of the intricacies of the work. Sketches, scale drawings with measurements, and a displayed sculpted wood/metal, and semi precious stone panel from JJ Astor's home also illustrates the depth of Saint Gauden's abilities.

Letters to Saint Gaudens from President Theodore Roosevelt are fascinating and funny.

Saint Gauden's Historical Site in Cornish NH is one of our favorite places- the bronze relief of the 52nd Regiment there and in Boston always makes me weep- and we have seen a lot of Saint Gauden's work in context (i.e. NYC) so we could have been bored. Not at all....The Currier's display is a not to be missed exhibit.

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.

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.

Mines Falls is a lovely "Green Space" in Nashua. There are walk and bike paths that take you through wooded areas and along a small river / canal. There are also softball fields for outdoor sporting activities.

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!

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.

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

Palace Theatre

Reviewed By donfisher12 - Nashville, Tennessee

We have seen several plays and shows at the palace Theatre this past year. The theater has a rich history, modeled after the palace theater in NYC. This turn of the century theater has the old time charm and is fully renovated. The architecture is amazing, sound and lighting is great and the seats are comfortable for a 2 hour show. There are concessions and drinks available. Only draw back is one restroom each for men and women, so the lines can get long. Great place to see theater, I highly recommend this place to see a play, dance or show at! Great mix of talented acts are scheduled each month. Tickets usually run around $40-$50 per seat.

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.

Spooky World

Reviewed By Alex G

Awful!! Don't waste your time and money!

1.) Opening weekend 2016 was awful! Parking/getting there was a NIGHTMARE, and were unaware that you need to pay to park. We waited in like for 45min when we printed what I thought was the tickets online, but no its just a voucher to show you paid online, that didn't get us in the park any faster.

2.) We arrived at 7pm, and it was a mod scene, the whole place wasn't very organized or easy to navigate, once in the door we were herded to the first area where there were just lines of people, (not a huge deal) so we waited....and waited and waited.....and at 8:45 (not kidding) we were at the beginning of the line, and went through the first (haunted area), very very disappointed (not to give away anything) but it was very understaffed and 70% of the scary things in that area was a prop, not even a real person, and there were plenty of duplicates of the same prop, I wasn't very impressed. That area lasted about 4 min from beginning to end and that was far from worth it..oh yeah and at two different points when walking through that haunt we were stopped and a line formed inside of the haunt leaving everyone wondering why we stopped. Again not impressed. And after that we realized one of the 5 haunted areas was closed...which made the lines even worse! All of the lines were longer! then the first one we waited in. It was ridiculous and I have been to many haunted places in New England and this one was by far the worst in regards to entertaining and how organized the whole place was. I do not in anyway recommend this place. Understaffed. Overuse of props..and stupid expensive. Take it or leave it. This place isn't worth it...Check out another one in Salem NH (won't name names but you'll find it, way better, SF)
