New Hampshire Day Trips

by

Staying in Lincoln and want to get out and explore?  There’s so much to see and do in the White Mountain Region.  With everything just a short drive from the centrally located town of Lincoln, you’re bound to find something fun and exciting!

North Conway, NH – In the summer, take the Kancamagus Highway from Lincoln right into North Conway.  Play a round of mini-golf at Pirate’s Cove or ride the water slides at Banana Village.  Take a ride on the North Conway Scenic Railway.  Outlet shopping, though, is the big draw to N. Conway. With all of the big name stores in the two mega complexes, it’s a shopper’s delight!  And it’s tax free!

Ben and Jerry’s – Waterbury, VT – Take a factory tour of this icon of ice cream!  Just an hour and a half drive from Lincoln, this fun factory tour has some great facts about one of New England’s most beloved ice cream makers!  At the end of the tour, enjoy a free sample of the flavor of the day!

Mt. Washington – Home of the World’s Worst Weather, Mt. Washington is a great day trip for those who want to experience New England’s wild weather!  If your car meets the qualifications (and it’s the right time of year), you can drive up the Mt. Washington auto road.  If you want to just sit back and relax, then take a trip on the Mt. Washington Cog Railway.  They recently purchased some bio-diesel engines so they have less of an impact on the environment!

The New Hampshire Lakes Region – South of the White Mountains is the New Hampshire Lakes Region.  Take a drive around Squam Lake, made famous by the Katharine Hepburn and Henry Fonda movie “On Golden Pond.”  Tour the Castle in the Clouds, the Historic Lucknow Estate, located in Moultonborough.  Learn about the life, ideals and values of the Shakers when you visit the Canterbury Shaker Village in Canterbury.

This is just a sampling of what you can discover in the White Mountains of New Hampshire!  Plan your trip today and let us know what you discover!
