Visit Southern New Hampshire's
Monadnock Region

mount monadnock video Grand Mount Monadnock stands sentinel over Southwest New Hampshire's glorious Monadnock Region... where the quaint towns and villages and white clapboard churches of quintessential New England can still be found. Just a short drive from Boston, Hartford and New York City you will find a warm welcome as you explore the peaceful valleys and rustic beauty on your vacation or holiday travels.

This may be New Hampshire's quiet corner, but there is always plenty to do. Visit in the Spring for maple sugaring, beautiful flowers and the beginning of golf season. Summertime will find you out hiking and biking or enjoying some of the many lakes and rivers by canoe or kayak. Relax on summer evenings with concerts on the town common, mouthwatering al fresco dining and more chocolate choices than you can imagine. The classic simplicity and quiet country charm of crossing a covered bridge as you travel the back roads highlights fall foliage time in New Hampshire. With cross-country and downhill skiing and many trails, you need only strap on your skis or snowshoes for a day of winter fun. Then snuggle up in the cozy comforts of many fine lodging opportunities.

Historic buildings, berry-picking, art galleries, music events, professional and community theater, hunting, fishing and so much more await you in the Monadnock Region. Close enough to enjoy for the day — but once you experience the Monadnock Region you will want to plan a stay.
