Small New England cities or really big towns

Jump to last reply

Most people travel to New England for quaint. I like quaint. But when work takes me from tiny hamlet to teeny village over the course of the summer, I need my city breaks, too, mostly on the weekends
I like Portland Maine a lot. Ditto Portsmouth NH. Burlington VT was OK (the city was just OK, but I loved the Shelburne Museum. I wanted to like Manchester NH but it seemed so dead on the weekend. Brattleboro & Bennington VT were also OK. I expect to return to some places, and explore some new ones
So what other small cities or large towns in Vermont, Maine or New Hampshire should I add to my list? I' m looking for a place with some kind of walkable downtown, and if it's longer than 2 blocks, even better ;) Good inexpensive Asian or Indian restaurants, Museums are great. I only need to spend 48 hours or less at a time so smaller places could work for me

On my short list for the past couple of years are Montpelier VT, Middlebury VT,Concord NH Keene NH. I was in Hanover NH but only to see the Hood Museum. Any votes for or against these places? Anything in Augusta Maine? Williamstown MA and North Adams Ma, might be just a little out of my way this time . Other suggestions would be most welcome!
