The Monadnocks and Merrimack Valley: Places to Explore



Keene is the largest city in the state's southwest corner. Its rapidly gentrifying main street, with several engaging boutiques and caf├ęs, is America's widest (132 feet). Each year, on the Saturday before Halloween, locals use the street to hold a Pumpkin Festival, where the small town competes with big cities such as Boston for the most jack-o'-lanterns in one place at one time.
