Chamber of Commerce web sites can also be quite useful but tend to be weak above the White Mountains.
We built, and therefore prefer DirectoryNH.com. It's easy to navigate, broad in scope, and very light on advertising. It offers over 10,000 hand cataloged links to NH businesses and attractions, etc.
The Visitor Resource Center at DirectoryNH.com lists Must-See events, and articulated the state's best shopping areas, things to do and has a quality description of each of the state's major regions. Do check it out.
24th Annual Celebration of Lupines
Colloquially called the ‘Lupine Festival’, this event combines the beauty of acres and acres of lupines with all the magic and charm of a large New England small town fair.
With several NH mountains as a background, a quarter mile down the street will be 60+ food artists, chocolatiers, artisans, and so much more. The 2nd & 3rd weeks in June are best for viewing the Lupines.
Of course, NH has a great many activities happening all the time. Alas, there are no comprehensive calendars for the State of New Hampshire but there are some good resources.
If you are visiting NH, try the following three pages for your best family options:
NH has an amazing diversity of landscapes for such a small state. Most of our cabin and cottage opportunities lay in the seacoast, lakes or mountains regions, but occasionally cabins may be found elsewhere, particularly in small towns that were late zoning law adopters.
The Lake's Region has a considerable number of cabins and cottages as well as the benefit of being as much as two hours closer to Boston. Prices are higher but the region offers many restaurants and nearby attractions.
The White Mountains offer mostly cabins at a full range of prices. Restaurants, attractions and good shopping make this area quite popular overall.
Our Seacoast is quite small and cabin accommodation offerings are similar.
Cabins and cottages can be found elsewhere in the state but are few. In these areas, your best bet for cabin accommodations are probably found in campgrounds that also offer cabins.
