The Matchup: Gas Station Dollar Candy Bar or Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory

The Matchup: Romantic iPod Mix or Live Music at the Stone Mountain Art Center
And the winner is…Stone Mountain Art Center!
We love the romantic mix. Really, we do. We love the thought that goes into creating it and the emotions that are evoked from each title on the track. But, the Stone Mountain Arts Center offers an entire experience that will create a brand new soundtrack for your romantic memories. You must check it out!
A Romantic Stroll
The Matchup: Down Main Street or Down the Trail
And the winner is…Down Main Street!
This was a well-fought battle, indeed. Not much beats the feeling of being out on the trail enjoying all of what New Hampshire’s unique natural environments have to offer. But the extra gear, the sweat, and the occasional bug all helped the casual walk down Main Street edge out and win this battle by a mere fractions. Besides, you’ll find the romantic opportunities on Main Street to be endless.
