Top Ways to Get Your Kids to Put down Their Phones This Summer

Posted by Christa Peoples on Jul 3, 2017 9:00:00 AM

If you are headed on a family vacation with teens, one of your top concerns is probably how to get them to disconnect from their phones and reconnect with their surroundings. There is no doubt that we live in a busy world jumping from activity to activity, and with the scope of information accessible at our fingertips, it is growing harder and harder to put the computer away and schedule an hour or two just to take walk, commune with our thoughts, or have an uninterrupted conversation with a loved one.

Celebrate the Red, White and Blue with a New Hampshire 4th of July

Posted by Christa Peoples on Jun 16, 2017 3:08:51 PM

Four score and seven years ago…

Well, these days, it would be more accurate to say two centuries, two score and one year ago, our Founding Fathers signed a Declaration of Independence from colonial rule and effectively established a new nation: our home, the United States of America.

The 4th of July is an important holiday to celebrate the birth of our country, with its amber waves of grain, and- our favorite- purple mountain majesties. And as a national holiday that falls right at the beginning of summer, the 4th of July has a grand tradition of neighborhood picnics and family barbeques, swimming in nearby lakes and rivers, and laying out on a blanket in the grass to wait for dusk to fall so the local fireworks display can begin.

Plan Your Next Excursion: Hiking in the White Mountains

Posted by Christa Peoples on Jun 6, 2017 3:34:22 PM

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.
