D Acres of New Hampshire: A Refreshing Weekend Getaway

D Acres of New Hampshire is not an ordinary hostel; it's a non-profit organic farm and homestead, as well as a summer camp and educational center.

Hostels usually consist of dorm rooms separating male and females, a basic kitchen, and a social area. D Acres has an assortment of rooms. Only one is a dorm room, which sleeps three, allowing for a little more privacy than typical dorms that sleep six to twelve.

Everybody has their own idea of a great vacation, I guess. For my daughter Sarah and me, this year at least, it had to include a lot of theatre. She's an aspiring actress and I'm an aspiring playwright.

So we headed up to New Hampshire to enjoy great summer stock theatre performances in the splendor of the White Mountains. Read more...

A Mystery in Stone: Who Built America’s Stonehenge and Why?

It is obvious it was used for astronomical purposes. Stones mark the solar and lunar cycles. But there is far more to America’s Stonehenge than just telling time.

Its date of construction is arguably anywhere from several hundred years ago to 2000 B.C., and why it was built is a guess. Yet the mystery has many physical clues and anybody who wanders through the ruins can offer a possible solution. Read more...

Concord, New Hampshire: A Capital Destination

“Are you headed up North or are you going down South?” asked the waitress at dinner on our first night.

“Actually, we’re here in Concord for the weekend,” I replied.

Her eyes lit up and she told us that she was happy we had come. So were we.

Having grown up in Massachusetts my boyfriend Ty and I had no excuse as to why we had never visited the nearby capital of New Hampshire, and when I was invited to the opening of the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center we jumped at the chance. Read more...
