The railroad town of White River Junction has reinvented itself as a haven for artists and craftsmen. At the Tip Top Media and Arts Building, visit open studios and galleries displaying everything from stained glass to printmaking. Paint your own pottery at the Tip Top Pottery Studio or visit Venetian-style mask-maker and puppet-maker Gabriel Q. Eat lunch on the ground floor Tip Top Café, where the waitstaff skews toward middle age. At the Main Street Museum, puzzle over exhibits like “Objects With Orifices” and “Tangled Things.”
