Day 8 – New England

Travelled through several states today in the New England area.

We visited New Hampshire, which s relatively small in size, however has some very pretty vistas and fun stores.

We visited the Millyard Museum today which provides insight into the development of the Manchester area of New Hampshire. The area had a strong link to manufacturing and developed several products over the life of the factories. The museum provided a great insight into the establishment of the area and how it changed over time.

We also visited Brattleboro in Vermont and the Twice Upon Time antique store. The store was lots of fun and had lots of individually arranged booths within the larger store, so there was lots of variety. Brattleboro has a very strong artist community and there are several co-operative artist stores which have affordable and interesting hand made arts and crafts for sale.

We then drove to Massachusetts and are staying in Boston for the next few days.
