2. Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad Turkey Dinner Train
I like trains. I’ve been on many scenic train rides, so I knew what to expect on the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad. Or so I thought. My experience “riding the rails” on this Meredith, NH railroad greatly exceeded my expectations.

3. Magical Menemsha in Chilmark
Of the many magical and enlightening experiences that I have had at Menemsha, a fishing village that sits on Chilmark Harbor of Martha's Vineyard island, one of them stands out in my memory. I had arrived at the island by boat to be wed on the beach of Menemsha at sunset. The harbor here is renown

9. Drive Up Mount Washington
Hot and humid? The top of Mount Washington will cool you off. And yes, you can drive there!

10. Boating & Pets New England Style
Here in New England, we take our boating, and our pets very seriously. Many of us see no reason not to combine the two.
