My husband and I really enjoyed walking through Keene. The architecture is beautiful. Even though most of the shops were closed when we arrived to town, window shopping was great. One more plus, there are so many restaurants to choose from.

Gorgeous typical New England town square. I swear to you, I kept looking for Doc and the DeLorean! It has the clock tower, the statue, the bandstand; all that's missing is the malt shop. Great restaurants and cool shops line both sides of the street....More

Keene's central square and main street is quaint, however, it is a very beautiful place to spend the day shopping or experiencing great restaurants and local stores!

We spent some time in March at an AB&B that was in walking distance of Central Square. We ate at several restaurants, shopped at numerous specialty stores, and in general just enjoyed the area.

This is small city ambience right out of the movie studios. A beautiful tree shaded square, iron fencing, floers in summer, with benches for sitting and watching the world go by. At the top of the square is a large white steepled church, with small...More

The Monadnock Region is real hidden jewel if you enjoy experiencing New England at it's very best. Central Square Is part of the experience. Really too many things to see to mention and suggest you check out the region on the web.

so, before the square was a bit of a mess. There were people smoking salvia and basically it was a hang out. The store owners were a bit upset (wonderful stores here) and yet it was all legal. Now it is a New England tradition...More
