The entertainments that the people of this mountain region have devised for tourists and visitors – in all four seasons of the year – boggles the mind. In winter, of course, several ski areas --- Attitash, Bretton Woods, Waterville Valley, Wildcat, Cannon, Loon -- offer downhill and cross-country skiing as well as snowboarding, snow tubing, and terrain parks. The other seasons of the year, too, are rich with activities in the mountains, particularly for families and children.
The region has 18 family attractions, among them are the Conway Scenic Railroad and the Hobo Railroad, offering train excursions through gorgeous mountains and gorges; the Mount Washington Cog Railway, with its heart-stopping trips to the summit, where visitors can see views of four states and Canada; the Polar Caves, a series of dramatic, glacially formed caves and gorges; Santa’s Village, Fort Jefferson Fun Park, and Story Land for the younger crowd; and Whale’s Tale Water Park, with a wide selection of water slides and rides. Many of the ski areas host warm-weather activities like Alpine slides, gondola rides, biking, skate parks, climbing walls, horseback riding, and golf. Towns and ski areas also put on many festivals throughout the seasons, devoted to entertainments like music, food, wine, antique cars, and more. Stay late if you can: evening fireworks shows are becoming a frequent way to end a day of fun.
