Guide to Spring in Lincoln, NH: a Tourist Town's Quiet Season

Posted by Katelyn Michaud on Mar 21, 2018 4:26:26 PM

This blog post is part of “The Guide to Spring Activities In The White Mountains” blog series.

As the snow begins to melt, the rivers start flowing a bit higher and faster, the gardens and wildlife flowers begin to bloom, and the mud puddles are found in abundance around town. Despite the mud, Spring in the White Mountains is a beautiful time of year to visit. The winter crowds are packing up their skis until next year’s big snowfall and the summer crowds have yet to arrive making the area a perfect place to visit if you’re looking for a quiet escape to the mountains.
