There is a sports store in town where you can rent bikes and kayaks. There is a supermarket, drugstore, hardware store, and a NH State liquor store in town, plus many more interesting shops.
During the summer, the New London Barn Playhouse offers wonderful summer stock musicals and plays for all ages. It has been doing so for over 75 years! See their website for details.
