/Top 10 Unique Things to Do in and Around Keene This Month

It’s winter in New England, which means the days are short and the temps are low. If you’re not careful, it can also mean you come down with a severe case of cabin fever.

To get you out of the house and feeling good, we at Masiello Employment assembled a list of some uniquely fun winter activities in (and within 20 miles of) our lovely hometown of Keene, New Hampshire, and all within the month of February:
