Kancamagus Highway

Highway 112, or the Kanc, runs from Center Conway to North Woodstock, just south of Franconia Notch. Passing through the White Mountain National Forest, it is considered one of the most scenic highways in the U.S. and offers a number of interesting stopping off points.

NOthing compares to the Kangamagus Highway. It has everything that draws the interest of the adventurer: covered bridge, waterfalls, historic sites, lots of hiking trails for beginners to experts. Its especially impressive in the winter when the snow is settled in the woods and along the trails. The Swift River is perfect for the amateur or professional photographer; especially at Lower Falls and Rocky Gorge. If you're daring you can stop along the way and get great shots of the river wit its clean water and interesting falls. Don't miss the Colbath House with its classic barn and simple cemetery. Stop for the historic markers if the history bug has bit you..

I would highly recommend King Pine to anyone visiting the Madison area in the winter/early spring months. The facilities for tubing are fab and there are three different runs so if it is busy there is always enough runs to ensure you get lots of goes. Also, on some evenings they do $10 tubing . Good fun for people of all ages

Castle in the Clouds

This "castle," a former estate, and the surrounding grounds, offer remarkable views of the White Mountains and Lakes Region.

Reviewed By MS06 - Boston

I had last been here about 18 years ago, and the house has had quite a makeover. Fascinating to stroll around. There are lovely views, but the leaves were late this year. If you want to stroll to the waterfall, do it on the way up as there is a different road down. The entrance fee is quite pricy.

We had an ice cream bar at our wedding and all the ice cream came from the Sandwich Creamery. Everyone loved it and people still talk about is how good was the ice cream. I contacted the creamery via email and they were very professional and helpful with ideas. I was very happy with the customer service as well as the ice cream.

Monkey Trunks

Monkey Trunks offers fun for children, adults and families! Participants begin with ground school and receive safety instructions on how to navigate through the course. They then move on to the green course to demonstrate they have the ability to properly use their equipment. After completing these two stages, participants will progress through the levels - each level becomes progressively more challenging! Monkey Trunks courses feature 11 ziplines and 63 challenges consisting of swinging beams, tightropes, rolling logs, hanging tires, cargo nets and more! Each Monkey Trunks location includes a children's course for the littlest of monkeys, with platforms no more than 6' off the ground. The children's courses include 6-8 challenges with an 80' zipline at the finish. Reservations are encouraged and can be made anytime online or by phone.

I have driven by Monkey Trunks so many times and never had the time to go, finally got the chance recently with 3 teenagers and a 5 year old. The staff was preoccupied and honestly seemed to be spending more time messing around together than helping/motivating/encouraging the kids. The teenagers enjoyed themselves, although they were looking for more guidance from the staff. Unfortunately the 5 year old was totally traumatized after being left behind to struggle by the staff member who accompanied him on the kids course. The kids all felt rushed through the course, as if it was an inconvenience that we were there. The staff seemed more interested in hanging out together than helping the kids through the course.

If your kids are super strong and there's a group of them to keep each other motivated it is a great activity for older kids, just don't expect the staff to participate much. Could have been an amazing experience if the staff were a bit more involved and focused on the kids.

Silver Lake Railroad

Reviewed By hcaveman - Intervale, NH 03845

My wife and I took a foliage train last Fall, and we recently took the train tour in the Summer. There is no fee, except by donation. The train is maintained by a group of volunteers fascinated with railroading. The train operates on weekends only. The ride takes about 45-50 minutes, and passengers see beaver dams, beaver ponds, lakes and bog areas featuring blue herons. Occasionally, deer can be seen as well. There is a place for refreshments located on the grounds, and there are picnic tables where lunches can be eaten. In addition, there is a train station to visit. The engineer does a good job describing sights and talking about the train. This is a nice family attraction.

For a fun afternoon, we drove from Kennebunkport ME to Ossippee NH especially to use a Groupon ($20) which we purchased for a tour and tasting. I didn't check, but they only have tours on Saturday. We didn't mind as we have toured wineries, distilleries and meaderies before so we were looking forward to using our Groupon for the tasting. After arriving we saw the sign which says that the tastings are always free!!! So after the tasting, which was nice, we ordered the ploughmans and the tacos and a bottle of Cranberry Sage mead. We enjoyed the food and a glass of the delicious mead. Before leaving we bought 14 bottles of mead including the one which we drank half of at the table. After, I asked if we could use our Groupon towards anything, Caitlin told us we couldn't. So we spent $281 plus $20 for the Groupon and didn't even get to take home any tasting glasses. I guess the $20 Groupon is just for the tour which is not clear on the coupon.

We enjoyed the mead, especially the Vanilla Bean and the Cranberry Sage.

Reviewed By IgleWolfe - Nashville, Tennessee

What a gorgeous wedding venue! We went to a beautiful wedding at this venue in New Hampshire and loved everything about it. The ceremony was outside under a huge tree and overlooked fields with the sunset in the background. An old fully-restored barn held the reception and we danced the night away both inside and spilling out onto the lawn outside for more fun, photos, and lawn games. Highly recommended for events!!

Mount Chocorua

Reviewed By Steven H - New York City, New York

Chocorua is according to the APC the most photographed mountain in the world and it's no wonder why. It's a gorgeous mountain sheltered in the southeastern White Mountains that isn't as challenging as the taller Presidential mountains, and has a huge summit with just amazing views. Keep in mind, Chocorua is still a tough climb in parts with extended sections that go up and up and up and some that require a little scrambling. We hit the summit via the Champney Falls Trail with a couple of little doggies who were both able to make the climb without incidence. They did need some help with a couple of the upper sections of rock leading up to the summit above the treeline.

The Barnstormers Theatre

Reviewed By marko18745 - Houston, Texas

We watched a Saturday afternoon production of "You Can't Take It With You" and it was outstanding. The cast was superb and the acting first-rate. Our seats were good. Although there are some venue limitations around lighting and sound, it did not diminish the high quality of the production. This was our first visit to this theater and we will plan to return.
