Food Scene
It's the most classic New England you're ever gonna get! Beautiful views of the brick mills across the street and the valley beyond, a quaint little front porch, local food and bits and bobs from local vendors all with a small eating area. We've been told that they've been voted "Best Breakfast Sandwich" in the US! We can't disagree. If you go in the morning you'll find the farmers stopping in for their morning coffee, while the lunch crowd and locals move in further in the day.

One of our favorites, Fireworks brings big-town sophistication to small town charm on Main Street in Keene! Their drink menu (and the atmosphere) is great, and their brick oven pizzas are delicious! Their gluten free menu isn't bad either!

A low key beach with clean water and very few boats! The beach area has swings, a volleyball court, a picnic table and is a short walk away from the center of Harrisville. For those with little ones, the entry to the lake is shallow, long and sandy--perfect for early swimmers or non swimmers!

Sightseeing
It's the widest Main Street in the US and its Elm-lined walkways and gazebo-laden Center Square are an iconic view, with a white church in the background. Walk up and down checking out the local shops and restaurants and see if you can find the "Parrish Shoes" mural that was a set piece from "Jumanji" (and which became a temporary memorial after Robin Williams' death)
