These 7 Attractions in New Hampshire Show Our Unique Side
It’s possible that we have a serious bias, but we think that New Hampshire is the best state in the northeast to explore. It goes without saying that the nature is incredible and that spending the day outside is one of the best ways to ensure a good time. But there are also some fantastic attractions located throughout the state and these are a few of our favorites!
1. U.S.S. Albacore, Portsmouth
USS Albacore Museum, 600 Market St, Portsmouth, NH 03801, USA
Commissioned in 1953, the U.S.S. Albacore spent its days traveling up and down the eastern coast. In 1972 she was retired and helped the Navy test Cold War technology. Today the submarine is strangely parked just a few turns off of I-95. And inside things have been left just as they were when she was operational. To learn more, check out
2. Adventure Suites, North Conway
Adventure Suites, 3440 White Mountain Hwy, North Conway, NH 03860, USA
There might not be a more unique way to spend a night in New Hampshire than by staying in the themed suites found at this hotel. With suites ranging from Deserted Island to Dragon's Lair to Haunted Castle to The Jungle and everything in-between this is an accommodation experience you just won't find anywhere else.

3. The Betty & Barney Hill Abduction Site, Route 3
Betty and Barney Hill Historical Marker, Lincoln, NH 03251, USA
If you love the truly weird parts of New Hampshire, make your way to one specific place on Route 3. This is where you'll find the historical marker recalling the region's most famous alien abduction in 1961. Betty and Benny Hill are said to have driven their car towards the town of Lincoln on Route 3 when something approached from above. After that, they remember nothing. The story is fascinating and actually sort of plausible. You can check it out
4. The New Hampshire Telephone Museum, Warner
New Hampshire Telephone Museum, 1 Depot St, Warner, NH 03278, USA
It's weird to live in a reality where something that was once as ubiquitous as the phone is now a bit of a relic, but it
does make for a fun museum. This place has an array of telephones and visiting is a great way to spend an afternoon.
5. The Covered Bridge Farm Table, Campton
Covered Bridge Farm Table, 57 Blair Rd, Campton, NH 03223, USA
Overlooking the 1829 Blair Covered Bridge dating back, this restaurant offers some impressive views. But the food is just as special. The menu is full of fresh, local food and somehow it all tastes even better with the Pemigewasset River running alongside it. Learn more by reading
6. FUNSPOT, Laconia
Funspot, 579 Endicott St N, Laconia, NH 03246, USA
The world's largest arcade is right here in New Hampshire and it offers tons of fun. It's open all-year, which means the fun never stops. Along with more than 600 different games, there's also a great museum to explore. You can learn more about it by checking out
7. The Sulphite Covered Bridge, Franklin
Sulphite Bridge, 48 Terrace Rd, Franklin, NH 03235, USA
This upside-down style bridge spans the Winnipesaukee River connecting the towns of Franklin and Tilton. Its unique appearance is due to the train tracks running on the top of the trestle, which means the bottom appears to be unused. The construction was done this way to make sure it was strong enough for anything that rode across it and today it's one of the most interesting-looking bridges in the state! You can read more about its construction and history
