Come along on the ‘Insider’ Field Trip to Tilton and Northfield

If you’re not from Tilton, what are some of things that come to mind when you think of that town? The Tanger Outlets? The slew of fast-food joints? The car dealerships? The big fireworks store? Nobody would blame you for associating these things with Tilton. After all, Exit 20 off Interstate 93 dumps you right into the heart of all that commercial stuff that makes up a good chunk of Tilton. But if you drive around a little more,...

Take a drive to Lochmere Country Club in Tilton and take in the beauty of the course

Among the many ways Tilton is similar to Concord is the presence of a golf course. Sure, Concord has two courses, but one is a members-only country club. In Tilton (technically the village of Lochmere, within Tilton), all they have is the Lochmere Golf and Country Club, and this club is open to the public. Lochmere is certainly a picturesque course, with all kinds of changes in elevation providing a variety of pleasant views from many...

Kettlehead Brewing Co. is a must-stop destination for any trip to Tilton

There are plenty of places to grab a beer and a bite to eat in Tilton. If you’re after Bud Light and Michelob Ultra, you can probably find endless supplies of those fine libations at the 99, Uno’s, Applebee’s and Chili’s, just to name a few. Those establishments also no doubt offer staple menu items like burgers, mac and cheese, salads and pasta. But if you’re in the mood for something a little more adventurous, something a little...

We tried a tuna burger and a Great North Tie Dyed at Onions Pub in Tilton

Over the course of our field trip, we had some hot wings at Kettlehead and some pulled pork potato skins at Tilt’n Diner, both of which were excellent. While they were good, neither dish was meant to be a full meal, so we knew we had to find a place to have an honest, sit-down lunch experience. We ended up in the quaint downtown center, where we found Onions Pub and Restaurant, which occupies the lower level of the Tilton Inn. The...

Tilt’n Diner has some tasty pulled pork potato skins

If there’s one truth in life, it’s that the skin is often the best part. Whether we’re talking turkey, fried chicken, grilled trout or anything else that has skin, there’s something about a thin, crispy outer layer that just hits the spot. This is rarely more true than with potatoes. While potatoes are pretty great in virtually any style of preparation, it’s hard to do better than loading up some skins with cheese, meat and whatever...

We had fun in Tilton and Northfield, but there were some things we missed

It was a whirlwind trip trough Tilton and Northfield, and what a trip it was. For as much fun as we had, there were a few things we didn’t have enough time to get around to. For instance, we wanted to check out Smoke N Barley, a country store that stocks all kinds of exotic craft beer, beer-brewing supplies and a wide range of tobacco products. We weren’t able to get in touch with an owner to show us around. We also had high hopes of...

Instagram: A long-exposure shot of Turee Pond in Bow at sunset

We’re pretty big fans of landscape/nature shots, and Instagram is loaded with all kinds of them. This shot here, by user @sheldonmckinley_, really grabbed our attention last week. The photographer, Sheldon McKinley, used a full 2-minute long exposure to capture the sunset over Turee Pond behind Bow High School, and the results speak for themselves. If there is a heaven, it has to look like this. Nice shot, @sheldonmckinley_! Have you...
