Gorham is a great mountain resort town, with a clear focus on supporting enjoyment of all year-round outdoors activities the region offers. Don’t be surprised to see ATV’s motoring down the main streets, sometimes controlled by twitchy tourists. There are several restaurants and local shops to explore, along with lots of opportunities to get out and enjoy the forests, rivers, and woods.
The NER group dinner on Friday is the only fixed item on the trip schedule. Some of us will be visiting a different restaurant/pub each night around 6:30 (unless otherwise posted) for a highly rated inexpensive dinner. Nonna’s and Libby’s have limited seating, so think about trying one or the other on different evenings to spread out the customer load for these restaurants.
Folks are welcome to join in the “crawl” or make their own plans as desired. All restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel.
