Places Welcoming You


Did you know that New Hampshire’s license plate bears the legend, “Live Free or Die”? Those tough words mirror the rugged granite mountains and sharp valleys of this of the appropriately named Granite State. New Hampshire is home to Mt. Washington, highest in New England. This unique RV trip takes you all ’round the mountain — and even up its slopes!

1. Campton

Starting Point •  History, Nature, Quirky

How did Campton get that name? It’s the site of a 1700’s surveyor’s camp…hence, Campton. Stop in Campton and visit a historic home, view a beautiful waterfall, take a boat tour, get a massage and much more. But whatever you do, don’t miss Campton’s 1869 Blair Bridge — a historic covered bridge that spans almost 300 feet across the Pemigewasset River. That’s as long as a football field!’

2. Lincoln

Drive 20.3 miles, 24 minutes • Quirky, Outdoor Recreation, Sports

Lincoln is the home to outdoors activities to satisfy just about every enthusiast. You can take a 15-mile ride on the Hobo Railroad, while kids (and parents, grandparents) love the Whale’s Tale water park. Lincoln’s Summer Safari Tours take the whole family 6-wheeling through rugged and beautiful scenery. Skiing, biking, hiking and even horseback riding await you in and around Lincoln.

3. Carroll

Drive 24.4 miles, 30 minutes • History, Nature, Outdoor Recreation

You’ve never taken a ride like this one — the Mt. Washington Cog Railway near Carroll, New Hampshire. You’re in for a gravity-defying, 3-hour trip up the tallest mountain in all of New England. Take an old-fashioned steam engine train ride or choose an eco-conscious biodiesel-powered train. If you’re a “leaf peeper,” make this trip in the fall to catch New Hampshire’s spectacular fall color display.

4. Glen

Drive 31 miles, 40 minutes • Outdoor Recreation, Quirky

Rugged mountains and fresh mountain air may be Glen’s #1 claim to fame, but Story Land theme park is a close second. Get ready for over 35 acres of attractions, rides, and plain old family fun on over 20 rides like the antique German Carousel, Turtle Twirl, Crazy Barn, Roar-O-Saurus and more. Playgrounds include the interactive Grandfather Tree, a Pirate Ship, more.

5. Conway

Drive 12.9 miles, 23 minutes • Entertainment, History

The Conway Scenic Railroad is a step back in time to when trains kept America running. Enjoy a nostalgic, old-fashioned train ride in vintage passenger cars along historic rail routes through New Hampshire’s famous mountain vistas. Enjoy first class dining, ride through spectacular Crawford Notch, enjoy events like Mother’s Day specials; Murder Mystery Dinner Train; a trip with Thomas the Tank Engine™; and more.
