8 Perfect Places In New Hampshire For People Who Hate Crowds
New Hampshire is the perfect state for people who hate crowds. With wide open spaces and plenty of wilderness reprieves, New Hampshire offers you the opportunity to have as much – or as little – interactions with your neighbors as you wish. Here are 8 perfect places in New Hampshire that you can enjoy with no crowds.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
1. Great Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Newington
The Great Bay is a tidal estuary tucked behind the sea coast of New Hampshire. The national wildlife refuge is the perfect place to hike or kayak.
2. Pawtuckaway State Park, Nottingham
One of New Hampshire's smallest state parks is tucked away from the crowds. However, this beautiful park packs a punch for people who love nature.
3. Pillsbury State Reservation, Washington
It may not officially be a state park, and that keeps Pillsbury State Reserve off the radar of many New Hampshire residents, making it perfect for exploring on your own.
4. Weirs Beach In The Off Season
While Weirs beach buzzes during the summer, it turns into a ghost town from Labor Day through Memorial Day. It's still a beautiful spot to catch a view of Lake Winnipesaukee!
5. A Beach During the Winter
New Hampshire beaches are pretty desolate once the snow flies, but they're also drop dead gorgeous. Bundle up against the cold and take a talk on the snowy sea shore.
6. Dixville Notch
This tiny town in the great north woods has also been sparsely populated, but since the closure of The Balsams Resort there are even fewer crowds.
7. Lake Francis, Pittsburg
One of the northernmost lakes in New Hampshire is also one of the quietest. Here, there are no crowds to steal your fishing spot!
8. Wentworths Location
Wentworths Location has a populations of - wait for it - 33 during the 2010 census. That means you're a whole lot more likely to spot an Osprey than other visitors.
