Visiting the White Mountains of New Hampshire

family travel reviews - white mountainsThis past Memorial Day weekend, we packed up our Toyota Prius and headed out to the White Mountains of New Hampshire, about a 2 1/2 hour drive from our home west of Boston.  I’ll have full reviews on our resort – the Mountain Club on Loon, as well as Story Land, later this week.

We started our vacation on Friday afternoon.  After a four hour drive (yes, traffic is difficult on a Friday of a holiday weekend), we had dinner at the Common Man Lincoln, before checking in to our resort.

In the morning, we crossed the Kancamagus Highway to get to Story Land, where we spent the whole day.  Then, we went back to our hotel for some rest and an informal tour of our hotel before dining at the onsite restaurant.

Sunday was a more casual day – we played miniature golf, swam, visited a friend’s house, checked out Franconia Notch State Park and did some shopping.  We went back to the Common Man for dinner, before heading back to our hotel to pack up.  On Monday, we played miniature golf again, before getting on the road to drive back home.

I’m so glad that we were able to visit the White Mountains now, because once the summer started, it would have been difficult to fit a trip in.  Check back here tomorrow and Friday for reviews on Story Land and the Mountain Club.

  1. My FIL races Mount Washington once in awhile, so I have actually been through the White Mountains. Glad you were able to spend your holiday weekend there!
