-- The campaign trail can take presidential candidates to some pretty interesting places.
Along with all of the diners, town halls and colleges these presidential hopefuls visited, they also went to some pretty fun places.
Here’s a virtual tour:
No B.S. Backyard BBQ
Several Republican presidential candidates went to a series of barn parties in Rye hosted by former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown called “No B.S. Backyard BBQ.” In early November, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush tweeted the following picture of hot dogs while he was in attendance.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz stopped at “the largest arcade in the world, founded in 1952” by a man who still works there every day in Laconia, according to Funspot’s website.
Granite State voters met Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore at a target shooting practice in Belmont. Gilmore even gave shooting tips to reporters and the crowd in attendance at the Belmont Firearms and Range.
Hundreds went to see Carly Fiorina speak while also enjoying a glass of wine. Labelle Winery in Amherst hosted the event in early January.
