If you picture a typical New England downtown district in your mind, then Central Square in Keene is what you would envision. You can find almost anything you can think of along Main Street... restaurants, coffee shops, clothing (mens and women) stores, bike shops, hand-made...More

This part of town with shops and restaurants is very pretty. Many cool shops and places to eat. A beautiful park with a statue and flowers at one end of town.

Keene is such a lovely town, and while it is actually a small city, it feels so much more like a town, and Central Square is the focal point of that beauty, in all seasons. The gazebo, the church, restaurants, coffee shops, all right within...More

Except for events like the Christmas Tree Lighting, for which traffic is excluded, this is an awful place to sing (I have done this several times) and even highly amplified music is difficult to hear when trucks and motorcycles are only 15' away. Central Square...More

We had no idea how nice downtown Keene was--shops, restaurants, bars, old buildings, churches--it's a very pleasant place to stroll, shop, eat and drink.

Keene's Downtown is a great place to see the square, check out the church, unique restaurants, chocolate maker, theater, coffee shops, clothing shops, and local goods shops. Close by is the Farmer's Market (Tue and Sat, in season) and the Coop. Supposedly, Main Street is...More

A great walk-around within beautiful Keene. Quaint shops, shaded sidewalks, beautiful gardens, and friendly natives. If you have an hour to spare, you couldn't find a better place to spend it.
