5 Things I Need to Try Now That I’m Living in New England
There are a lot of great reasons why I decided to work at the legendary WOKQ, but before I get into that, I moved here from the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia. But I lived in South Jersey.
One of the things I truly enjoy doing is spending time in nature. So if you're an outdoor person, then this is a great place to be. I was told there are 48 mountains in the state of New Hampshire alone.
You know what they say in real estate, location, location location! There are so many things to do here, but here are 5 things on the top of that list.
1. Catch a baseball game at Fenway
I always wanted to catch a baseball game at the legendary Fenway park. I mean, the green monster, c'mon! I still remember as a kid watching games on tv, you know, with Jim Rice, Fred Lynn, Carton Fisk. A lot of old stadiums have been torn down, but I've always wanted to visit some of the legendary sports venues.
2. Hike at Acadia National Park
Hiking is new to me, as I just got into it a few years ago. My wife, Shawn, is a huge outdoor person. She's the one that got me into it, and before I had any idea that I would be working in New Hampshire, I wanted to go camping/hiking in Acadia National Park! I hear it is beautiful (my wife and daughter wanna go as well), so we will be planing a trip there as soon I get some time off.
3. Ride the Mount Washington Cog Railway
I also wanna ride on the Mount Washington Cog Railway. You know, just to experience it. I really want to take advantage of living here, and do all the things that are popular in the area.
4. Drive the Kancamagus Highway and check out the view
I drive a Mini Cooper S, and let me tell you, it is a fun car to drive. That's the only reason I bought it. Not only is it a blast to drive in the city weaving in and out, but there are a lot of winding roads and open straight aways. Come fall, which I can't wait for because I love to drive, I wanna cruise the Kancamagus Highway along New Hampshire's Route 112. I heard it is one of the best well known fall foliage viewing places in the United States.
5. Visit the Isles of Shoals
So a friend of mine was showing me around, and we were driving on ocean boulevard, right on the seacoast, which is so awesome. Then he started telling me about the Isles of Shoals. I had never heard of it before, but there is so much history there. I cant wait to check it out.
What else should I add to the list?
