Have five days to spend in the Monadnock Region? Lucky you! Let us help you make the most of your time here. Our first recommendation is to consider splitting up your stay, maybe a few nights at a local farm or a cozy inn, and then spend a few nights in of one of our more bustling downtown areas, like Keene or Peterborough. Day 1: Getting Settled After a few hours of driving (the Monadnock Region is 2 hours from Boston and 3 from New York), it’s always nice to stretch those legs. The region is home to all kinds of trails, from casual walks to more intense climbs. For your first day, we recommend an easy stroll, maybe on the Cheshire Rail Trail a nice walk around Cranberry Bog in Peterborough or one of the shorter trails of the Harris Center in Hancock. Now that the car is parked and you’ve gotten in some steps, how about a great cup of coffee and maybe a sweet treat? Brewbakers, Prime Roast Coffee, Fire Dog Bakery, Kristin’s Cafe, Burdick’s Chocolate Shop and Cafe, Twelve Pine, Barn & Thistle all have something to help you get you through until dinner.
