Authentic Isaan Thai food in a surprising setting. This is real-deal! but for the best experience, eat at off hours, like 3 pm. Otherwise expect long waits and possible compromise in attention to detail. Can be AMAZING if you hit the sweet spot, but is never disappointing if you are prepared to wait.

Upstairs is an upscale restaurant, downstairs is a cool pub with great cocktails, and a slightly limited version of the upstairs menu. Pricy but worth it, especially for the free pool and shuffleboard.

Drinks & Nightlife
Great place to grab a pint, only a few doors down from the house! Excellent rotating list of local (and not so local) craft beers. Food can be hit or miss but usually they have a good burger, and those fried pickles or cheese curds go great with a cold beer! Pool table.

Deep in the National Forest, 3 mile trail up to the ridgeline is easy at first but gets quite steeper further up. At summit, follow long trail north 1/2 mile to summit of Mt. Roosevelt or south 3/4 mile to summit of Mt. Wilson, nice views from both.

One of New England's finest ski resorts. Something for everyone: gentle, well groomed cruisers, classic ungroomed steeps, epic tree skiing. Lift- serviced mountain biking and disc golf in the summer.
