Fall Adventures in NH

Filed under: Uncategorized — karenhammond @ 8:25 pm

If antiques call your name, consider a drive along New Hampshire’s Antique Alley, beginning at the Lee Traffic Circle. Along this 22-mile stretch, you’ll find a great assortment of antiques (and yes, occasionally some junque) .  I especially like T. Berries Antiques and Primitives, Parker-French Antique Center, and Parker-French West Antique Center, all in Northwood, but be sure to check out the many other antiques shops along the route. The nearby Deerfield Fair takes place from Sept. 9-Oct. 2.  It’s a great family event, with something to appeal to all ages. Here’s a link for information: www.deerfieldfair.com  Also in the area is the University of New Hampshire at Durham. There’s also something going on at the campus most of the time and if you’re traveling with a potential college student,  fall is an excellent time to introduce him or her to the college scene. The gorgeous campus will encourage any high school junior or senior to hit the books, and Thompson Hall (locally known as T-Hall) in the middle of campus  is beloved by antiques enthusiasts and architecture buffs. www.unh.edu

Happy traveling. The leaves will soon be turning and New England will once again glow brightly.
