Located on the southwestern edge of New Hampshire just above Massachusetts and east of Vermont, Cheshire County is a charming, old-world corridor to New England that makes an ideal landing spot for families looking for a quiet life that’s close to plenty of things to do.
You’ll find 23 quaint towns across the county’s 729 square miles. Both the Connecticut and Ashuelot rivers run right through it while Mt. Monadnock has been called the most hiked mountain in the world. Farms, parks, and other outdoor spots line the roads, providing an endless array of activities to enjoy. In the town of Keene, you’ll find all of the trapping of small-town America as well as plenty of cultural centers, restaurants, and family-friendly activities that you’ll want to explore.
