Family Fun at White Mountains, NH

New Hampshire’s White Mountains are one of the most unique places to visit in the United States. If you’re searching for travel information to entertain the entire family outside of the common vacation brochure, check out the vast array of family-friendly attractions you can engage in at the White Mountains.

Clark’s Trading Post and The White Mountain Central RR. Enjoy a train ride through the mountains, watch trained bears perform entertaining tricks, tackle the Old Man Climbing Tower, and visit the five museums on Victorian Main Street. Clark’s Trading Post is the best of the best when it comes to high mountain theme parks. Children and parents alike will love the Chinese acrobats and the always-entertaining shows centered around the famed Wolfman Lore. Grab ice cream, purchase candy or hop on the railroad. There’s always something to do!

• Flume Gorge. Your average vacation brochure won’t include this travel information: Flume Gorge is located 800 feet below Liberty Mountain, and is easily one of the most scenic spots in New Hampshire. Treat yourself and your children to a self guided two-mile hike through the natural chasm. The views are spectacular, the waterfalls are breathtaking and the memories are priceless.

Attitash Mountain Resort. There’s nothing quite as thrilling as experiencing the rush of Attitash’s 4,300-foot roller coaster, built right into the side of the mountain. It’s also the home of the biggest Alpine Slide in North America. But if roller coasters and slides aren’t your thing, you can always check out the mountain biking attractions or take a dip in the Mountain Resort pool and spa. During the winter months grab season passes and enjoy the many skiing activities for the entire family.

Cannon Aerial Tramway. This tramway is one of the most impressive in the world. You’ll be lifted high above the scenic skyline and taken through the beautiful White Mountains, all the way into Vermont and even as a far as Canada. There’s no matching the gorgeous views you’ll experience from within the aerial tram. You can also visit the New England Ski Museum or check out Echo Lake when you reach the summit, which is the starting point of the aerial tramway.
