The Monadnocks and Merrimack Valley Travel Guide


Keene is the largest city in the state's southwest corner. Its rapidly gentrifying main street, with several engaging boutiques and cafés, 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.
