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.

Quiant theater with an IMAX. As with a majority of movie theaters, the concessions are ridiculously priced. Tickets were decently priced; they even had military discount. I didn't view there IMAX screen, but the normal screened rooms were sufficient.

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.

Cowabunga's

Reviewed By Quilp32845 - NH

This place is definitely worth a visit if you've got young children and the price is not to be beaten: $12 per child with adults free. My granddaughter had a wonderful time and thoroughly exhausted her parents (while I watched). Bring a friend for your child if you can; they'll have a great time together.

Clough State Park

Reviewed By Mezasu - Merrimack, New Hampshire

Best of all, it's free! There were many people walking with their dogs and young children. First time visiting was honestly magical. We saw the small signs on the road for a dam and thought it would be neat to see. Did not expect something this large, clean, and beautiful. It made for an amazing stroll on a beautiful day. The parking lot is paved and clean and it is easy to walk around. Be prepared to meet and greet many dogs! It was an absolutely lovely day. Have plans to visit again very soon.

This, by far, is one of the best paint nights!! I've done them other places and nothing is as good as this. There were 7 of us who went as a girls group. It was so great to be able to pick whatever you wanted...MoreThank you Jodi for your review of The Canvas Roadshow! We appreciate you! Debbie (Kara and Carla, too)

Livingston Park

Reviewed By Tricia B - Manchester, New Hampshire

Good place to go walking. Fairly even area all the way around the pond. Both my senior mother and young grandchild enjoy going. There are bench placed around the pond in case you need to rest. Or if you just want to watch the ducks in the water. There is a play ground for all ages of children. There is also bathrooms. I grew up ice skating on the pond in the winter. Also brought my children when they were young to enjoy that past time also.
