Story Land, Glen, NH
As a New Englander, no summer is complete without a family trip to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Located just a few hours away from Boston, the White Mountains offer lots of family-friendly hotels, restaurants, and attractions. For families looking for a little more space, there are also plenty of family vacation home rentals available.
The 16 major attractions of the White Mountains will all be open within a few weeks – with most of them opening this Memorial Day weekend. Lost River Gorge and River Caves, the Conway Scenic Railroad, the Flume Gorge, the Polar Caves, the Mount Washington Cog Railway, and the Auto Road in Pinkham Notch are all currently open, while everything else (except for the Whale’s Tale Water Park) is opening over the weekend.
Our two favorite White Mountains attractions, are Story Land in Glen, NH and Santa’s Village in Jefferson, NH, because of the rides they offer. Geared towards children aged 10 and under, these two parks are a great way for young families to enjoy the White Mountains. Both parks are easily doable in a day or a day and a half, and both offer attractions that appeal to the whole family.
