Come grab a taste of New Hampshire's rich and sugary history
Tapping into one of New Hampshire best treasures, come visit Fuller’s Maple Sugarhouse to see how maple tree sap becomes the best syrup in the world. Their new sugarhouse incorporates maple production and syrup making all in one location, making it easy to see the whole process. Definitely make sure to bring home a bottle of syrup, as well as some of the maple sugar candy, my personal favorite. $2.96-$67.50; 877-788-2719. (photo courtesy of jmd41280)
