Top 10 Things to do in Derry, United States

December 23, 2017 Terina Blouin

Derry is a town in Rockingham County, New Hampshire, United States. The population was 33,109 at the 2010 census. Although it is a town and not a city, Derry is the fourth most-populous community in the state. The town's nickname, "Spacetown", derives from the fact that Derry is the birthplace of Alan Shepard, the first astronaut from the United States in space. Derry was also for a time the home of the poet Robert Frost and his family.

Canobie Lake Park

Canobie Lake Park in Salem, New Hampshire has over 85 Rides, Games, Live Entertainment and Attractions, including our wild roller coaster, UNTAMED!

Reviewed By John D - Manchester, New Hampshire

Canobie is a nice example of an old fashioned park. It’s popular with locals and even crowded at times. Once you’ve seen Disney, six flags, or Universal, it’s tough to go but it’s cute; quaint really. It has boat rides on the lake and a tiny train running through the park. It has water rides and a decent coaster.

High 5 Ballooning

Reviewed By tripman539 - Boston, Massachusetts

Excellent adventure from start to finish. When you take a flight with High 5 Ballooning, you will quickly get the impression that Tony Sica [owner and pilot] runs his business with one question in mind; “If a were a client, what would define the perfect flight experience for me? As it is with most things in life, it is the small things, the little details that matter, from a clearly enthusiastic pilot, to having the balloon chasers taking photographs from the ground along the way, to the nice picnic at the end in a nice, scenic area.

As a person who has flown in balloons many times over the years in different locales and varied conditions, Tony is at the top of the list. He will work with you to make your flight experience a memorable one. From my experience, there are two kinds of people who provide a good or service: Those who do their job and those who do their job well. Tony certainly fits the latter category and is the consummate professional from start to finish. Thanks, Tony <and Chase Crew>!

Mack's Apples

Reviewed By MeganZopf - Fitzwilliam, New Hampshire

I stopped by to get some apples and fresh vegetables a couple of days ago. I was more interested in the vegetable than the apples, however my daughter did buy apples and pie. I bought some green peppers and I decided to buy a homemade chicken pot pie that was frozen. I was told by one of the employees they were delicious so I took her word. I bought the one that had peas and carrots because some do not. It is labeled as Aristocrat Chicken Pot Pie White Meat With Peas and Carrots. Let me tell you it is about as close to homemade as you can get! It was a perfect meal and delicious! I'll make a trip back before the season is over to buy a couple more. I am sorry this review is more about the pie than apple picking. I have picked apples there in previous years though. The homemade pie my daughter bought was also delicious. It had the crumb top verses crust but it was good. This was also frozen and had to be cooked. I recommend stopping by before the season is over!

Benson Park

Reviewed By Lauralanglois - Hudson, New Hampshire

Best local place to go cross country running. With just enough trails to get 5m in and enough variety to keep you from getting bored, Bensons is a winner! Lots of different terrain, from woods to field, to marshland, it's a fantastic place to walk,
Picnic, fish or just explore.

Robert Frost Farm State Historic Site

Farm where Frost lived, raised his children and wrote.

Reviewed By NewHampshiretraveler - Exeter, NH

Very simple "museum". The house where Robert Frost is now alongside a busy road. The barn hosts the "museum" which is really just a spot to watch some videos on RF and look at some family portraits and tools. Inside, a plain, white clapboard house...that shows some of the artifacts of the early 1900s when the family lived there. They had relocated to England then Franconia...and the property was a "junk yard" for decades, until the park service took it over and restored the property to its original appearance. You can do this in less than an a hour. A good stop for teachers, history buffs and readers of literature and poetry.

Moonlight Meadery

Reviewed By bellamh - Lunenburg, Massachusetts

My wife and I stopped by today for the tour and tasting, and it was fantastic. The owner took us on the tour, and the passion he has for the business really showed. He was very knowledgeable, and kept it interesting.

The tour included a tasting, we were able to sample seven different meads, which were delicious! He explained the flavors of all the varieties he had, and you got to choose which ones you wanted to try. We also got a keepsake glass, and if we come back with the glasses, we get a free tasting, which is great! We'll definitely be back!

Stockbridge Theater

Reviewed By Pegglebear - Derry, New Hampshire

Don't miss the student performed plays. You would swear the students were professional actors and actresses. This year I saw the Diary of Anne Frank, and it was great. The theatre is nicely maintained, and there are plenty of clean bathroom stalls in the bathrooms.

Pipe Dream Brewery

Reviewed By tacostuff - New Hampshire

I like Pipe Dreams a lot. The vibe is cool, there is outdoor seating, and the beer and food is pretty good too. I highly recommend it on those points. That being said, last time I visited, there were about 12 dogs in the place. As I'm trying to enjoy my beer, various dogs were licking my legs, and at one point, almost pushing me off the bar stool as it tried to get to some popcorn I dropped. Some of the dogs even ended up fighting. I acknowledge that I may not like dogs as much as some, but my last visit was over the top (especially for those who are allergic to dogs). I hate to say it, but having this many dogs around will stop me from coming in the future.

Reviewed By beachdoll_11 - Canterbury

We arrived in a blizzard and were a bit concerned about whether or not our driver would be on time. When we landed we received a friendly text message from our driver letting us know he was there and waiting and where he could be located. He even had hot coffee and tea and water waiting for us! He drove us to our location impeccably through an ice storm (great driver). Well-groomed and quite personable. Will definitely use again!
