Beer and Wine Tastings in The White Mountains

Posted by Katelyn Michaud on Apr 18, 2018 12:38:24 PM

The weather in the White Mountains in the spring can be unpredictable. Somedays it’s 70 degrees and sunny and other days it feels just like winter again. It's fun to spend your days outside hiking, biking, and exploring the best of Lincoln.

However, you should have some rainy-day alternatives planned just in case Mother Nature decides that the mountains need a little more rain for the flowers to bloom in time for summer. Here are some fun indoor things to do in the White Mountains!

On the Look Out for Moose in the White Mountains

Posted by Katelyn Michaud on Apr 18, 2018 11:49:46 AM

Moose, as funny as they may look, are one of the most majestic animals in North America. Commonly found in New England, Alaska, and Canada, moose are the largest species of the deer family with the average male weighing about 805 pounds. While you can find moose throughout all the New England states, northern New Hampshire is one of the best places to spot them in the wild.

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.

Hearty New Englanders like to joke that we have five seasons – Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring, and Mud Season. 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.

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.
