Get Away From It All and Come Visit the White Mountains


north cownay ski lodgingIt’s February, and it’s cold, snowy, and wet. Some people have a hard time coping during this time of year. They feel shut up and get a horrible case of cabin fever. “There’s nothing to do” is a common complaint. Some try to pass the time with movies or a good book, but after a while even those activities begin to feel stale.

 

Don’t suffer any longer! Take a long weekendand get away from it all. Where should you go? No, you don’t need to spend a ton of money and take a trip to some tropical island. There’s plenty to do and see right here in NH. In fact, the White Mountains area is one of the most beautiful in the country. Besides the scenery, there is an endless supply of things to do around here. Let’s take a look at just a few.

 

  • Hike In The State Park – The State Parks are beautiful any time of the year. Of course, during the fall and spring, you have the vibrant colors of the changing leaves or spring flowers. But even if you choose to come in the winter, you won’t be disappointed. How could you be with beautiful trails, majestic waterfalls, and sparkling bodies of water?

 

  • Drive The Northern Loop and Southern Loop – The drive – it’s a great American pastime. Unfortunately, not many have been able to do that much recreational driving because of high gas prices. But, now that gas prices are starting to fall, why not take advantage of that and enjoy the scenery? The great thing about driving is you can go at your own pace; you can take a quick scenic drive, or pack a lunch and make it an all day adventure.
  • How About a Scenic Train Ride?To really slow things down and enjoy as much of the scenery in this part of the country, the train ride is the perfect alternative. Get to know others from around the US who have come here to get away from it all just like you. There are at least four railways to choose from. With the rolling edges of the mountains, the lush vegetation, and the romantic feel of train travel – you’ll definitely get lost in the beauty of the moment.
  • Oh, Yes…Did We Mention Skiing? What’s winter without winter sports? We get plenty of snow during the winter months, and you should definitely take advantage of it! There are multiple resorts to choose from, and they offer a variety of snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and downhill skiing packages. There’s nothing better than winter sports to help you shake off some of those winter blues.

 

Winter doesn’t have to be a gloomy time of year. Often all you need to do is shake things up a bit. Get away from it all, travel to a beautiful area like the White Mountains, and enjoy all it has to offer. We hope to see you soon!
