Up here in the mountains of New Hampshire, we experience a few quiet times of year. These, we feel, are well-earned after the bustling months of summer and fall, when our streets and attractions are brimming with visitors from around the world, and the adventure of a cold, snowy winter, when outdoor enthusiasts make the trek up Interstate 93 to visit our alpine ski areas and snowmobiling trails.
The most magical time of the year is approaching, and we all know what that means: decorating the Christmas tree, holiday parties, gift exchanges, eggnog for some and hot apple cider for others, horse-drawn wagon rides and sled-dog tours!
Right now is the perfect time to start planning a pre-holiday getaway with your family. Kick off the holiday season with a few days of time spent together on some of the most memorable holiday traditions. These activities are things you can do just once... but we think it's pretty likely you will want to repeat them for years to come.
What better way to get in the holiday spirit than to head out as a family, and work together to find and cut the perfect Christmas tree for your home? It’s time for the holidays in the mountains!
We had so much fun last year with our first annual White Mountains Crush wine festival, and we are THRILLED to announce the return of the event on Saturday, October 21, 2017. Mark your calendar – it’s two weekends after Columbus Day!
Apple picking, cider donuts, pumpkin-head scarecrows, oh my! It’s time to break out your extra-long scarves, set the timer on that apple pie in the oven, and check out our list of Must-Do Fall Activities in the White Mountains!
The sun is getting warmer, flowers are blooming, and summer is approaching: It’s time to plan your next outdoor adventure in the White Mountains!
It’s important to remember that, although beautiful and moderately trafficked, the White Mountains can be dangerous for inexperienced and unprepared hikers. Even if you are a regular hiker at state and national parks near your home, trekking up and around mountains presents its own unique set of challenges.
Luckily, there are nearly endless amounts of resources to help you prepare for and plan your next adventure to go hiking in Lincoln NH, whether a quick outing with small children, a more-intense day-hike with friends, or an overnight backpacking excursion with fellow adventure enthusiasts.
