Banish the Brrrrr… with heart-warming winter fun in Masiello Employment’s hometown of Keene, New Hampshire. Here in New England, winter seems to last about nine months out of the year, so we might as well embrace and enjoy it. Here’s a round-up of our favorite cold-weather activities in Keene:
- Stonewall Farm: This working dairy farm and educational center sells its wonderful wares at the on-site store. And that’s just the beginning. Surrounded by a vast campus with fields, pastures, and woodlands, the farm weaves a special kind of magic in winter with snowshoeing and sleigh rides.
- The 17th Annual Keene Ice and Snow Festival: A free, family-friendly event held in early February at Central Square in downtown Keene, it’s a winter wonderland with ice sculpture competitions, snowball fights, a big bonfire, and generous doses of hot cocoa.
- Granite Gorge Ski Area: Sure, you can ski here, but you can also participate in cosmic snow tubing on Saturday nights, which ups the standard tubing experience with the outrageous addition of disco balls, neon lights, and glow-bead necklaces.
- Cheshire Rail Trail: This 42-mile-long rail trail is thought to be the second longest in New Hampshire, running from Keene to Winchester. When the landscape turns wintery white, snowmobilers, mushers, and cross-country skiers transform this trail into their very own pretty playground.
- Keene Rotary Club’s Annual Winter Event: This charity event raises funds for children and youth programs, including the Club’s Jane’s Kids, which gives warm clothing to local school children; at the elegant reception, raffle winners are awarded large cash prizes, including the $5,000 grand prize.
