Lakes Region: Gunstock, Winni Playhouse, Funspot among the region’s entertainment destinations

A wise man once said, “If it’s not fun, why do it?” That’s kind of the whole philosophy of the Insider. While there’s always some big news out there – this candidate said this, the school board meeting went like this, this person was arrested for this or that – we prefer to stick to stuff people actually want to hear about, like riding mountain coasters, playing arcade games and watching live performances. For this Field Trip issue,...

Lakes Region: No shortage of places to grab a bite or a pint

As everyone knows, the Insider has always been a big proponent of eating, especially on a Field Trip. Luckily, the Lakes Region has more than enough options to choose from on this front. While there are plenty of big, fancy restaurants to choose from – most of which are probably great – we’re always on the lookout for places that are a little different and might have something unique about them. We found a few places that fit the...

Lakes Region: Local business shopping is all the rage around here

When it comes to shopping, many people like to support small, local businesses over the billion-dollar multinational corporations. The Lakes Region has plenty of small businesses to support.

Morecello is a blackberry...

The Yogi: Vegas – the yoga training capital of the world

For the Insider Call it a midlife crisis. I was staring up into a dark February sky. It was one of those all-day Nor’easters in New Hampshire, and I had just finished clearing a foot and a half of fresh snow from the long, steep driveway that leads to my home. The snowblower idled next to me. I was laying there, at the bottom of the driveway, wondering how I was going to get up. I was fairly fit, in my early 40s, and in pain. It was...

Making Good Health Simple: Snacking – how to do it right, while staying healthy

Snacking. It’s a legit thing. Possibly even a lifestyle. You see, I can not live without snacks. I have them in the center console of my car, the pocket of every bag I carry, and a dedicated drawer in my office.

Snacking is something different for everyone (example: if you ask my son, he’d say a cheeseburger is a snack). Your...
