Finding things to do on a week night can be tricky, but it can be done!  Here are some ideas of what you can do on the spur of the moment or with a little planning.  

Listen to Live music

There are many live music venues in the Upper Valley.  Many have shows on Friday and Saturday, but Salt Hill, Skunk Hollow, the Windsor Station, the Skinny Pancake, and Canoe Club have music during the week.  You can see a calendar here, but not all music venues are listed.

Mini golf

I'm super bad a mini golf but I still like to play.  You can enjoy a game at Fore-U and grab and ice cream after.  I recommend pina colada or black cherry.

Go Shopping (or browsing)

I love to go to WRJ and wander through the shops and the shops in Quechee at the Quechee Village.  

Storrs Pond 

There's so much to do here: swim, hike, kayak, play sports, etc.  It's a great evening out.  Bring some friends, just yourself, your family, or a loved one.

CCBA and Aquatic center

Swim, take a class, do a work out.  Before kids, my husband and I liked to go to the gym together after work.  Both the CCBA and Aquatic Center are great places to do these things.

Escape Room 

Challenge yourself to escape in one of their themed rooms in an hour.  A great activity!


Another challenge is to try your hand at trivia.  I really enjoyed my experience at trivia night at Ramuntos.

Try your Hand at Painting

I love the Sip and paint experience.  I actually feel like I have a bit of artist in me when I'm done.

Enjoy the Water

Stay Cool and Refreshed: Spots for Walking, Swimming, Ice cream and More and Kayaking.

Family Movie Nights

There are a lot of free movie nights during the summer.  Feel like a kid again or take the family.

Outdoor Dining

I love outdoor dining!  Find a good spot and soak up summer.

Concerts in the Park

What a treat to have so many great free summmer concerts.  I grew up loving concerts in park and can't wait to go again.  Grab some dinner and enjoy.

Staying in 

Sometimes you want to do something different but stay home.  Rent a board game.
