Escape Indoors for Rainy Day Fun in New Hampshire
Here in New England, we have a saying: If you don’t like the weather—wait five minutes. But on those occasional days when the forecast calls for gloomy skies and rain all day, it’s wise to have a backup in case that beach day or family hiking trip gets rained out. Here are six indoor activities to keep on your radar that the whole family will love!
Fun Spot, Weirs Beach
Children's Museum of New Hampshire, Dover
Head to the seacoast for a visit to New Hampshire’s most visited educational and cultural institution! The one-of-a-kind, hands-on exhibits are specially curated to engage not only the kids, but the whole family.
Impress the family with a visit to Funspot, the largest arcade in the world! With three floors, over 600 games, bowling, indoor mini golf, cash bingo, a tavern, and even a trove of vintage classic arcade games—there’s truly something for everyone.
Kahuna Laguna, North Conway
Explore an indoor tropical oasis at Kahuna Laguna—New Hampshire’s largest indoor waterpark. Voted amongst the Top Ten Indoor Water Parks in the Nation by USA Today, you’re sure to be impressed by this 40,000 square-foot paradise. Dip your toes in the wave pool, fly down waterslides, or just let the kids run wild!
SEE Science Center, Manchester
The SEE center is fun for the whole family—with hands-on exhibits exploring topics like earth, space, and biology. Plus, be sure to check out the LEGO® Millyard Project...it's the largest permanent LEGO® installation at minifigure scale in the world!
Save the day with a visit to SkyVenture, where action-packed indoor fun is the name of the game. Feeling brave? Why not try indoor skydiving! Or give it a go on the SurfStream, where you can challenge simulated waves indoors. And there’s plenty more where that came from… including boogie boarding, a Fishpipe ride, rock climbing walls, and so much more.
