Family-friendly activities that will inspire you to create lasting memories and make the most of your journey.
WINTER IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
Winter is the perfect time to trek the family on a snowy adventure—and New Hampshire is just the place to do it!
Check out these five ideas that are sure to please the crowd!
Rent a Cabin in the Woods
There are a wide variety of places in New Hampshire. You can find outstanding luxury options that fit the whole family, budget options that bring the charm, or small cozy cabins that are perfect for a sweet family getaway.
Ice Castles are different yearly, but they always bring back popular activities, including snow tubing, ice slides, ice tunnels, and sleigh rides! Plus, the gorgeous castles themselves and the magical forest light walk. Here’s a tip: book a ticket for the late afternoon, shortly before sunset. That way, you’ll be able to appreciate the blue tones that you can only see during the daytime and the illuminated creations that are best at night.
Tubing or skiing
Snow tubing is an activity for the whole family. The White Mountains are home to most of New Hampshire’s top ski resorts. Loon Mountain and Bretton Woods are two family-friendly spots with far more than just skiing!
Cozy Up with Cocoa
There are several Specialty Chocolate shops & Cafés throughout the state.
Drive through a small town's winter wonderland
The White Mountains are magical (and well-documented as such). We especially love the area around Franconia, with towns like Sugar Hill and Littleton, looking beautiful on winter days. From there you can drive further north to more lovely small towns.
