Things get a little quiet here in New Hampshire during the spring, making it the perfect season for a serene couples getaway or a family vacation. There’s still plenty to do as the snow melts.

  3. Woodstock Inn Brewery

  4. Ziplining
    Soar through the trees on one of three different zipline tours offered by Alpine Adventures. The Treetop Canopy Tour is great for families and anyone trying out a zipline for the first time.
  5. Tram Ride
    Ride to the 4,080-foot summit of Cannon Mountain via the tram. On a clear day, you can see the stunning scenery of New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, New York, and Canada. Check the website for availability.
  6. Fire Tower
    Climbing On some of the highest peaks in New Hampshire, you can climb even higher than the summit – if there’s a fire tower. From the Loon Mountain Fire Tower, you can see the all of the White Mountains from this perch.
  7. Fishing
    When the lake waters thaw, hungry fish in the rivers, lakes, and streams of New Hampshire start biting. Trout thrive in the cold water of the White Mountains region.
  8. Mountain Biking
    The White Mountain National Forest offers mountain biking and is open year round. All trails and roads in the forest are open to mountain biking, except for the Appalachian Trail and designated wilderness areas.
  9. Hiking
    Hiking in the White Mountains in the spring can be a little muddy, a little snowy, or a bit of both. But the scenery is beautiful and spring air is invigorating. Be sure to bring an extra sweater or jacket since the weather can be unpredictable.
  10. See the Waterfalls
    The many waterfalls of the region are at their most impressive during the spring thanks to the snow melt. The Flume and Silver Cascades and Rocky Gorge and Lower Falls are fantastic and can be viewed without having to hike up off the road.
