The Most Criminally Overlooked Town In New Hampshire And Why You Need To Visit
In New Hampshire, there’s a tendency to visit the Lakes Region and then buzz up to the White Mountains without taking time to pause and appreciate the beautiful towns in between those two vacation meccas. But if you do that you’re missing out! Nestled almost half way between the lakes region and the White Mountains is the town of Tamworth, one of the most beautiful and overlooked towns in New Hampshire. Here’s why you need to visit:
The view over Chocurua Lake looking toward Mount Chocurua is absolutely breathtaking. You'll understand why this is one of the most photographed sites in the state. However, take time to explore the surrounding trails to really get a feel for the area. The Chocurua Lake Conservancy does a great job of keeping the profound natural beauty.
The Barnstormers Theater
Each summer, The Barnstormers Theater brings professional theater to Tamworth with shows that are unforgettable. You'll feel like you're among friends in this cozy theater.
The Remnick Country Doctor Museum and Farm
If you think the name is charming, just wait till you actually visit the place. This historic farm will show you what life was like for pervious generations for New Hampshirites year round. Check out the Ice Harvest and Winter Carnival February 4th.
If you love high-quality spirits, Tamworth Distilling is a must visit. You can look around the facility, learn about the distilling process and even sample the fare.
The Tamworth Lyceum
With an old-fashioned general store, a cafe and even live music, you may never have to leave the Lyceum.
White Lake State Park
White Lake State Park is a mecca for activity, from swimming and boating during the summer to snowmobiling and hiking in the winter. Whether you do there, you're sure to be awed by the beauty around you.
And Everything Else!
No matter why you visit, Tamworth is everything New Hampshire residents and visitors love: an authentic, charming small town with heaps of natural beauty. So next time you're driving from the lakes to the mountain, be sure to stop!
