New Hampshire Travel Guide

Take ski lessons at this family-friendly mountain resort.

Stroll the gardens this historic estate of stone walls, a Colonial Revival mansion, and rushing brooks on Lake Sunapee that adjoins 675 acres of protected forest.

Annabelle’s owner, retired doctor Lewis Palosky, thinks of himself as “an artist, not a businessman,” and his credo is evident in the thick—difficult to pierce with a spoon—and intensely flavorful ice cream. Black raspberry, a New England staple, pops on the palate.

Whirl on the Crazy Barn and other rides.

The outdoor chapel sits on a bluff and overlooks Mount Monadnock. There's a beautiful altar made of stones donated from every state in the nation.

Hikers love the 1,000-plus network of trails that crisscross this 800,000-acre forest. Its 100-plus waterfalls are stunning any time of year.

This once-fading New Hampshire family ski mountain has linked with Eastern Mountain Sports to create an extraordinary outdoor adventure playground.

The once-haunted inn is now closed, taken over by the nearby Enfield Shaker Museum. Beginning in April, visitors can tour the Great Stone Dwelling in search of ghosts.

Bike the 12-mile Around the Mountain Trail, which runs from Brown Mountain past Eagle Lake.

Set atop an elongated ridge overlooking the Connecticut River, this 450-acre property is as prized for its gorgeous grounds as it is for its apples. The views, wooded surroundings, and sweeping manicured lawns have made it a popular spot for weddings.

Hike the boardwalks at The Flume gorge inside the park

The living-museum aims to make history real: costumed docents explain what life was like in Portsmouth from the late 17th to the mid-20th centuries, and on certain summer days, kids can participate in "Archaeology Camp," daylong archaeological digs on the grounds.

Cast for bass on this pond, north of Keene (hike there from the trailhead on E. Surrey Rd.).
