As the pandemic continues to unfold, the Monadnock Travel Council is closely monitoring CDC, state, and local guidelines to keep our travelers and residents healthy and safe. Through conscientiousness and creativity, New Hampshire has been quite successful in maintaining low virus numbers, as the NH COVID-19 website indicates.

The Monadnock Region Remains a Safe Destination

While businesses and activities may look slightly different due to COVID-19 you will find a wide variety of things to do that allow for social distancing. 

For instance, you can take a drive and travel back in time through the area’s historic covered bridges. Dine outdoors beneath twinkling lights, enjoying the culinary flair this region is known for. Soak in some live music at a local park or the brand-new Drive-In Live venue. Or simply hit the trails and enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds you here.

No matter what flavor of fun and relaxation you choose, the safety of residents and visitors is our highest priority. We encourage all travelers to read the latest tips and guidelines (see below) before planning your next adventure in Southwest New Hampshire.
