Keene, New Hampshire.
Keene is located in the south west corner of New Hampshire.
While it is not a hot spot of tourist attractions, it is a beautiful little city with a lot to offer. This is a picture of Keene as it usually looks this time of year. After three weeks of rain and snow, and lower than average temperatures, we won't see this lovely view for another week or two.
The downtown area of Keene, Central Square pictured above, is a wonderful place to stroll, shop, and just relax and take in the views. For information on the city, and what to do, where to stay and dine, and area attractions,
If your planning on being in Keene in the fall, the world famous Pumpkin Festival,
takes place the third weekend in October.
If you are not afraid of crowds, this can be an amazing extravaganza.
If you want to attend this year, you are probably to late to get a room, as they book up from one year to the next.
I would recommend a visit to the beautifully refurbished Colonial Theatre while in Keene.

If your visit brings to Keene during the summer season and you are a baseball fan, don't miss the Swamp Bats.
A perennial power in the NECBL, they are a treat to watch.
Several former Swamp Bats are playing in the major leagues at this time.
Alumni Field, the home of Swamp Bats baseball is a beautiful setting on a warm summer evening to take in a game of baseball, the way it ought to be played.
