Gilmanton was a very welcoming town! We drove down the main drag and first spotted the sign in front of the G-Mart that welcomed us. We went inside the cute little grocery/convenience store and were able to stop and talk to Chuck and Bonnie for a few minutes. They treated us to a pop while we got to know them. As we got into the car and continued driving, we spotted ANOTHER sign in front of the G-Stop Bar for us! We went inside where we met Shelly, the owner. It was a very nice place, and next time we will definitely stay longer!
