Once upon a time, Area 52 housed an idyllic New England hamlet. Then something went horribly awry in the local lab?and those responsible rushed to cover up their hideous errors. But secrets can only remain buried for so long, and today the deranged denizens of Area 52 once again roam the countryside.
This is merely one of the terrifying scenes set by Haunted Acres, an annual event sprawling across 46 chill-filled acres. Other attractions include an eerie zipline that ferries passengers over the area's more dangerous denizens, and a maze that favors an energy saving "no light" lighting scheme. Guests can burn off some adrenaline by pureeing squash during the Pumpkin Smash event, or seek refuge within the Toxic Tavern, which houses a bonfire to keep dark-dwelling monsters and really scary logs away.
Sun Tan City’s trained tanning consultants help clients get bronzed via UV-free tanning booths and ergonomic tanning beds.

The highly trained staff at HLC Med harnesses futuristic technology and its own line of products for services that heal, rejuvenate, and beautify. In the guffawing face of father time, technicians roll up their sleeves and unholster their lasers, blasting away acne scarring, rosacea, or hyperpigmentation with the Radiancy SpectraClear system. A chilled-tip laser uproots party-crashing hair from any skin type, and a Q-switched KTP YAG laser sends sun spots packing. Custom chemical peels stimulate cell renewal and collagen production to fill out fine lines, and radio-frequency devices firm up skin and smooth out cellulite. The center also offers services for men, including laser treatments for razor bumps, back-hair removal, and a gentleman's facial that moisturizes faces more effectively than head-butting Poseidon.
Hoping to revive the culture of the neighborhood butcher shop, with its personalized service, attention to detail, and artful products, restaurant-industry veterans Justin Rosberg and Jason Parent took a gamble on their first New Hampshire butcher shop in 2003. Dubbed The Meat House, their store quickly earned a foodie following, spawning additional franchise locations across the country. Today, The Meat House’s many locations stock fine cheeses, prepared side dishes, other gourmet grocery items, and hundreds of wines alongside the usual selection of traditional and exotic meats. Butchers also explain how to prepare each hand-carved cut of meat, sharing recipes, best slicing practices, and cooking techniques for giving pork chops the flavor of justice.
At What a Crock!, chefs turn locally sourced ingredients into experimental and familiar made-from-scratch soups, stews, and chowders. Three signature options headline the menu, including creamy tomato and the chicken-based Doc in a Crock, and chowder. Five daily-rotated specialties join the signature selections on the Slurp side, and on the Sip side, What a Crock! maintains its locally sourced theme with milks, sodas, and waters tapped from nearby springs. For a crunch, the restaurant dishes out freshly prepped salads, such as our house "crock salad" and Caesar salad, in addition to the speciality salads offered throughout the week.
