Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site

Once the home of sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this beautiful home and garden is now open to the public for free concerts and picnics.

Reviewed By McGone-agle - Hartford, Connecticut

Saint-Gaudens' sculptures are national treasures and this site of his summer home and sculpture studio houses many of his works in a garden setting. Individual sculptures can be found in public places in Boston, NYC, D.C., but his major works are all represented here in the bucolic landscape that inspired the artist. Operated by the National Parks Service, this historic site is worth a very long drive, and if you live or are visiting anywhere within an hour or two, be sure to put it on your 'to do' list.

Cornish-Windsor Covered Bridge

Reviewed By Ali921 - Edinburgh, Scotland

It's certainly not the most attractive but that is not why we visit it ! People have it on their list because it is the longest in the US. Unfortunately it covers quite a busy round so you don't get a chance to walk down or enjoy it in peace and quiet. Don't let that put you off. There is a very small parking area on the Cornish NH aspect.

Ascutney State Park

Reviewed By ctjustdoit - Connecticut

There are trails from the base of the mountain which if you are up to it are a challenge and awesome . The reward at the observation tower or west peak are worth your efforts . If you have less time or don't have the fitness to get all the way up, drive the auto road. It gets you with in 3/4 of a mile of the summit or 1/2 mile of west peak. These are still steep hikes over Boulder and rock fields (wear proper hiking boots) but you won't be hiking as long . But you still need the strength to climb steep trails with varied footing.

As nearly every Vermont State Park this o e is impeccably maintained .

North Country Smokehouse

In business for over seventy-five years, this smokehouse ships specialties all over the U.S.

Reviewed By BamTgg - East Hampton, Connecticut

While planning a trip to the Lake Sunapee area we also searched for 'smokehouses'. North Country Smokehouse was on our way.
The aroma of the smoking meat was wonderful when we arrived.
This is not a store, but a business which is open on weekdays. The product sheet, with prices, was on the counter to be filled out and within a few mimutes the order was ready They do also have an extensive online site for mail order.
Our favorite was the Maple Cured Center Cut Bacon--- delish !

Springfield Cinemas 3

Reviewed By Jeffery C

Customer service is the best. The owners take a lot of pride in the theater and it shows. Popcorn is always fresh. Tbe nacho chips are plentiful. First run movies and marathons too. Want to to do some gaming on a really big screen, you can do that here too. The staff is always friendly and have smiles on their faces. Even has an attached ice cream shop. Now if you coukd just get hot dog to go with ice cold soda.

Harpoon Brewery

Reviewed By smm628 - Glen Burnie, Maryland

This review is from the perspective of 2 non-beer-drinking adults visiting on a Saturday in November. We enjoyed the tour and found it very informative. We feel that beer drinkers would be pleased with the amount of tasting samples you were given for a $5 price tag.

When we entered the room, we were given safety glasses to put on, a souvenir glass and, once all attendees were in, our first free sample. We were given the first part of the tour in this fenced off area of the brewery, but then went out into the brewery itself at a few different stations for the middle of the tour. There were 3 tour guides who switched speaking at the different stations. Thought that was a great technique - kept it more animated than I think one person would have been. About mid-way through the tour, we were given a second sample. At the end, participants were allowed unlimited samples from the taps in the tour room.

Wilgus State Park

Reviewed By Lauralanglois - Hudson, New Hampshire

Memorial Day weekend, site 4, which is beautiful and right on the CT river.

Perfect spot for kayaking, hiking Mt Ascutney and exploring the Vermont countryside. Great launch pad to see Queechie, Woodstock, Harland, Claremont, etc. Ascutney state park is right down the street, and you can either hike from the bottom or drive to almost the top via the auto road and then hike the 1m hike around the top to the hang gliding spot.

There's a great canoe launch at Wilgus, but we will be driving to Windsor tomorrow to take a shuttle and kayak about 15m of the CT river tomorrow. :)

Campground is impeccable, bathrooms are super clean. shower was tiled beautifully but I was sorely disappointed by the lukewarm water. That won't keep me from coming back though LOL. Great place for sure

Escape Factory

An escape room is like an interactive, live-action puzzle. You and your team will be trapped in one of our themed rooms and provided with clues to complete your given mission within the allotted time period. We have some of the largest, most immersive escape rooms in New England. An attached restaurant, bar and function rooms await.

Reviewed By Kristina C

Check in at the bar. There isn’t a sign to make that clear. We walked in and were greeted immediately by the bartender, who went to get our escape room host. The escape room itself was fun and challenging, although as a person who isn’t really much of a game-player, I had a tough time getting started. The host provided crucial details from time to time to keep us moving in the right direction, and although we didn’t beat the game, we had a good time. The building is super cool.

Reviewed By ChickenLady1 - Boston, Massachusetts

Interesting place to visit. Man at desk was very knowledgeable and engaging with the visitors. Once we were inside the section past the front room, quite a few machines on display. Lathes, sewing machines, presses, etc. We spoke with a young man who was working there as an intern. He gave us a live demonstration of the machines in his area. Great job and savy young man!
