10 Winter Attractions For The Family In New Hampshire That Don’t Involve Long Lines At The Mall

We’re now officially passed the holiday season, which means that going to the mall and waiting in lines for shopping and photo taking isn’t a requirement. But on a cold wintry day, you might be tempted to head the mall just to get out of the house. We suggest you do something different. Rather than heading to the mall (even if that mall offers buttery pretzels and food court snacks!) we recommend trying any number of the wonderful attractions that exist other places in New Hampshire. Once you’ve narrowed down the things you want to do, you might want to share this list with a friend who keeps asking you to go shopping!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

While you’re considering your options for activities in New Hampshire, we’d like to suggest taking a look at some beginners hikes. Even those who have braved trails for years will find something fun in each of these!
