10 Spots In New Hampshire That Will Drop Your Frozen Jaw This Winter
New Hampshire is famous for its lakes, beaches and mountains that have been drawing people from around the country to The Granite State for decades. Most of those visitors come during the summer, but it turns out that the New Hampshire winter is absolutely magical. Here are 10 spots in New Hampshire are absolutely stunning even during the coldest months. Have a look:
1. The Lakeshore
You probably don't think of heading to the lake during the winter, but the ice and snow that are undisturbed by foot prints or tire tracks are simply stunning, particularly at sunset.
2. Mount Cardigan, Orange
Mount Cardigan is in the western part of the state, with stunningly beautiful views toward the White Mountains and the higher peaks in Northern New Hampshire.
3. Frankenstein Cliff, Hart's Location
Frankenstein Cliff is popular with ice climbers because of the larger-than-life icicles that form on the cliff. Plus, you'll be close to Arethusa Falls, New Hampshire's tallest water fall.
4. The Contoocook River
During the summer New Hampshire's waterways bustle with activity, but during the winter the rivers are calm and serene. The Contoocook runs from the mountains through Concord and beyond, so there are plenty of places to enjoy the view.
5. Rye Beach
New Hampshire's seacoast is short but stunning. The crashing waves, unique ice formations and expansive scenery will make you fall more in love with winter.
6. The Basin
One of the state's most popular tourist attractions during the summer, The Basin is equally stunning and much more secluded during the winter.
7. Great Bay National Wildlife Reserve
The marshlands surrounding Great Bay are surprisingly colorful during the winter months, and well worth a visit.
New Hampshire's northernmost city is, unsurprisingly, one of its snowiest. If you prefer winter adventure surrounded up nature at its best, this is the place for you.
9. Lake Winnipesaukee
When the ice settles in, Lake Winnipesaukee becomes a bustling city full of winter activity. Ice fishing, snowmobiling and many other activities will keep you busy!
10. The White Mountains
If you're a hearty hiker there is no need to put away your boots just because there is snow on the ground. The whites are absolutely stunning when the snow flies, hence their name.
