A Perfect Day in Crawford Notch, New Hampshire

A Perfect Day in Crawford Notch, New Hampshire

If you have only one day to spend in Crawford Notch State Park, then it can be a pretty tricky feat figuring out what you will do with it. In the course of a five minute conversation with any of the locals, we were told at least seven things that we just could not miss. There are beautiful waterfalls and stunning views galore and, quite frankly, you don’t have to work very hard to enjoy many of them. So here is our guide to the perfect day in Crawford Notch. Bring a couple of changes of clothes for everyone, because you are going to get wet.... Read More

Campground Review: Twin Mountain KOA, New Hampshire

Campground Review: Twin Mountain KOA, New Hampshire

After spending six nights at the Woodstock/Lincoln KOA in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and thoroughly exploring Franconia Notch, we were just not ready to leave the Granite State.  For every family friendly activity or outdoor adventure that we completed, we heard of three more that we wanted to try. So we did what we have done so often before.  We pulled out the KOA Catalog and looked for a suitable place to spontaneously extend our family vacation.  The Twin Mountain KOA seemed to fit the bill perfectly.  It was less than an hour...

Christmas Tunes and Yule Log Flumes:Santa’s Village, Jefferson NH

Christmas Tunes and Yule Log Flumes:Santa’s Village, Jefferson NH

The White Mountains of New Hampshire are filled with family friendly outdoor adventure options.  During our ten days there we hiked, biked, kayaked, zip-lined, and swam.  But we also enjoyed two great theme parks.  Our morning at Clark’s Trading Post was filled with fun, and our two afternoons at Santa’s Village were even better.  Both parks were clean, reasonably priced, and filled with a wide variety of rides that kept everyone entertained, including mom and dad. I was initially suspicious of the whole Christmas in Summer... Read More

The Kancamagus Highway, White Mountain National Forest

The Kancamagus Highway, White Mountain National Forest

The Kancamagus Highway, better known as the Kanc, is a 34.5 mile stretch of road that runs through the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire. We had heard from some folks that it was a lovely drive, but honestly it wasn’t at the top of our list of things to do while staying near Lincoln. Scenic car rides can be a tricky proposition with three young kids. We can experience heaven on earth if all three decide to fall asleep and let us peacefully gaze out at the magnificent landscape. Or we might endure a nightmare with a... Read More

Blaster Boats and Old Goats: Clark’s Trading Post, Lincoln NH

Blaster Boats and Old Goats: Clark’s Trading Post, Lincoln NH

During our ten days of hiking, swimming, and kayaking in the White Mountains of New Hampshire we found it surprisingly easy to avoid crowds.  In fact, our family often found itself alone while exploring lakes, rivers, and trails.  These places were not off the beaten path. Sometimes they were just off the interstate.  So if your family wants to experience outdoor adventure without suffocating summer crowds, then this might be the place for you. But the White Mountains are also filled with family-friendly attractions and amusement parks.... Read More
