"Charming colonial street"

Water Street - Exeter, NH
The centre of this small town, Water Street is popular with students, parents, and tourists alike, although the somewhat over-the-top "Ye Olde" feel may isolate some locals, Filled with charming craft shops and refurbished eighteenth- and nineteenth-century buildings, this street is extraordinarily picturesque. Stop by popular eatery The Baker's Peel for a fresh-from-the-over breakfast, indulge in delicious sandwiches alongside students at The Green Bean, or spend hours on the free wireless at "bakery." If nature's by your thing, head down to the banks of the lake, and enjoy a glimpse of the Academy's famous crew team practicing by the boathouse. For a swank romantic meal out, the Inn by the Water is a gourmet's paradise with stunning river views, although for a more affordable shot at the same view, Penang Tokoyo has a more laid-back (largely studenty) atmosphere. Nightlife is largely limited to the Ioka, a renovated music hall that is now a combined cinema-events hall.
