Seeing the NH Sights: Claremont

Sunday, September 15, 2013

Claremont is a paradise of second-hand, consignment, and antique shops. Today I counted 13 shops while driving through the downtown area. While eating lunch,

I was told of a few others. On Saturday mornings. Yard sales are abundant. Pleasant St is a great place to start with Nanaís Collectables and Pleasant Street Used Furniture & Antiques.. Violetís Book Exchange is a great place to find used books.

Our favorite place to eat in Claremont is the Common Man Inn and Restaurant, located in the Monadnock Mill. The menu prices are reasonable and the food is wonderful! The menu has enough variety to accommodate different diets and tastes. The staff is very helpful too. You can learn more about The Common Man at

    I'll second your recommendation for the Common Man Restaurant. Good food, fair prices. No reservations, so, especially on weekend nights, plan to either come early or be willing to wait for a table (or eat at the bar).

    Lovely pictures. Lots of small towns have had to reinvent their downtowns with the advent of shopping malls. I love it when they do it successfully. We live in a college town with an overabundance of restaurants but there are still a few nice shops. We had several independent coffee shops, one was really great with twice weekly poetry readings and local bands but sadly it shut down when a Starbucks moved in across the street. And the sad thing is that there is a Starbucks within walking distance to that one. I like to support local businesses but getting harder all the time with all the national chains moving in. Even all the malls are full of national chains.

You live in a lovely picturesque area. Thanks for sharing your pics!!
