Lobster rolls and redbrick towns in New Hampshire

No matter which season you travel to sophisticated New Hampshire, you'll have more on your plate than steamed crabs and the world-famous New England lobster roll. This is a place where charming redbrick towns and forested mountains, punctuated by glistening lakes, are the norm. If you step out of your mountainside New Hampshire vacation rental into the crisp air, you can strap on your skis to race down the powdery runs. Alternatively, choose a place along New Hampshire's tiny stripe of sandy shoreline for family fun on the beach.

Soar like an eagle in New Hampshire

Like much of New England, the state is awash with countless outdoor activities. As well as having a range of light, or challenging, hiking and biking trails, both along the coast and in the mountains and forests, there are some more unique adventures to be had. When you stay at a New Hampshire vacation rental, you could soar like an eagle on one of the tandem hang-gliders. For something a little tamer, if you like paddle boarding and yoga, you could combine the 2 in summer classes at night, which will see you doing downward dogs under a full moon.

New Hampshire is as kid-friendly as it gets

If you're lucky enough to have scored a New Hampshire vacation rental in the pretty harbor city of Portsmouth, the best introduction is a walk along the trail which takes you past 70 of the most historic sites in the state. Of particular note is the Strawbery Banke Museum, a collection of period houses brought to life by costumed guides. Bringing kids? No problem. New Hampshire's got you covered with its range of family attractions. Expect adventure parks, cog railways and more theme parks than you can shake a stick at. If that's not enough to keep them happy, we're not sure what is.

Highly changeable New Hampshire weather

New Hampshire's climate is highly varied, depending on whether you've scored a New Hampshire vacation rental on the tiny stripe of coast or in the mountains. It's unsurprising that the summer marks the high season, with hikers descending on the mountain paths, while families build castles in the sand along the seashore. Much of New Hampshire gets busy during fall, when the trees burst into typical New England colors. If you drop by the White Mountains during winter, the snowy runs are used by plenty of thrill-seekers on skis and snowboards.

Wild White Mountains in New Hampshire

The wild White Mountains' biggest draw is the myriad species that roam their forested foothills. It's almost impossible to go walking along the trails without being wowed by something you've spotted. The white-tailed deer is the state mammal and they dart around the forests in abundance. Moose are often spotted along the marshy waterways in the valley, particularly at dusk or dawn, when they are most active. With a little luck, you may also catch a glimpse of a black bear or bobcat ambling through the forest. Just remember to keep your distance.
