3 Keys to Infinite Family Fun

The most memorable family summer vacations are packed with a healthy dose of fresh air, great food, thrilling rides, and—yep—rest. And in New Hampshire, you don’t have to go far to get everything you’re after and then some! Here are three keys to infinite family fun and unforgettable adventures in the Granite State.

Rest Up, Fuel Up

Nordic Village Resort, Jackson, NH

When packing in so much summer fun, your family’s going to need to get some solid sleep. Wake up at one of these New Hampshire family-friendly lodging options, or check out our Facebook fans’ favs: Red Jacket, Nordic Village and North Conway Grand Hotel. When it comes to getting fueled up for the day, our fans also recommend The Stairway Cafe in North Conway or Longhorn Palace Pancake House.

Adventure Time

Franconia, NH

We like to “Live Free” in New Hampshire. And there’s no more freeing feeling than ziplining above the treetops or hiking to breathtaking views. The smiles, thrills and memories—not to mention the sense of accomplishment—that come from these adventures will keep your family coming back for years.

Joy Rides

The Mount Washington Cog Railway

Looking to sit back and relax after that early morning excitement? Get an afternoon ticket to ride the The Mount Washington Cog Railway and Hobo Railroad. The views are truly one-of-a-kind so be sure to clear enough space on your camera or phone!

There’s nothing like a classic theme park filled with rides, coasters, characters and water fun to capture the kids’ imagination and top off a perfect summer day. Clark’s Trading Post, Storyland, Santa’s Village are just a few fun spots to hit in the White Mountains. Gunstock Mountain Resort and Funspot in the nearby Lakes Region are also options kids love.

The above recommendations are from the VisitNH Social Media Communities that provided their favorite New Hampshire hot spots.
