Nice stroll down Maine Street to the Square. Cute shops, coffee spots, and restaurants. Plenty of meter parking along the street on both sides. Tree lined and ending at the square with a band stand. Nice to be out and about on a summer evening....More

My husband and I really enjoyed walking through Keene. The architecture is beautiful. Even though most of the shops were closed when we arrived to town, window shopping was great. One more plus, there are so many restaurants to choose from.

Keene's central square and main street is quaint, however, it is a very beautiful place to spend the day shopping or experiencing great restaurants and local stores!

We spent some time in March at an AB&B that was in walking distance of Central Square. We ate at several restaurants, shopped at numerous specialty stores, and in general just enjoyed the area.

I will second the comments made by Wombat 27. The Keene Main Street and in particular the view of the UCC Church steeple looking through the trees during Fall foliage is a sight to remember. In summertime concerts are held... More
