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:

Great Common Island is open every day of the year from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. You can learn more about it here. Remember that this isn’t a New Hampshire state park so the rules are a bit different. Make sure you know what to do before you arrive.

You can find another great place to spend time outdoors in Washington. Pillsbury State Park is a little-known New Hampshire destination with an otherworldly landscape.
