Spring Into Fun in Hooksett
The wonderful thing about Hooksett is that this small town is centrally located for easy access to so many other communities and attractions in southern New Hampshire. And as Spring blooms, there are plenty of ways to spend your days and evenings. We’ve put together a list of some ideas for you to check out.
There’s a boutique winery right in our own backyard. Visit Copper Beech Winery for tastings and to learn more about the winemaking process in New Hampshire. Copper Beech even offers a wine club.
Chuckster’s Ice Cream and Miniature Golf is home of the world’s longest mini golf hole and they promise the best experience possible. It’s a fun outing for young families and friends normally reserved for when you go on vacation and stop for mini golf as tourists. In Hooksett, you can play any time you want!
Do love shopping local? Even better, buying local food for your own personal farm to table home cooked meals? Johnson Golden Harvest is a farmers’ market unlike any other. Produce, meats, dairy, baked goods, and other New Hampshire made products from farms around the state are for sale year-round in Hooksett.
When you want a taste of the great outdoors, head to Massabesic Lake. It’s the source of drinking water for the city of Manchester, and while no swimming or water skiing is allowed, sailing, fishing and kayaking are. There’s also a popular dog-friendly trail.
Another option for our canine friends in Hooksett is the dog park. It’s become a great place for dog owners to get to know each other and even make dog park play dates.
Just to the north of Hooksett, in Allenstown, is Bear Brook State Park. It encompasses so much of what we love about New Hampshire — opportunities for camping, a day at the beach, hiking, biking, fishing, and so much more, just minutes away from home.
Hooksett is only 15 minutes from Charmingfare Farm, a local petting zoo and attraction for special seasonal events all year long. Children love the hay rides and sleigh rides. Looking for a place to hold a family or workplace function? Charmingfare has some ideas on how to throw a party right on site. And if you’ve ever wanted to be a part of a CSA program, Charmingfare has popular vegetable and livestock shares.
A place to learn about some old New England history isn’t far from Hooksett, either. Canterbury Shaker Village is an interactive indoor and outdoor museum, which preserves the traditions of the Canterbury Shakers. The Village is a National Historic Landmark where you can integrate education with fun for people of all ages.
When traditional amusement parks seem out of budget and too far away, give Candia Springs Adventure Park a try. The zipline courses and waterpark attractions can be just what the family is looking for on a warm spring day.
If music is more your speed, then you’ll want to watch the entertainment calendar for Tupelo Music Hall, another short drive from Hooksett in the town of Derry. It’s an intimate, relaxed venue that brings national names to its stage. You can even grab dinner there before the show.
