Things to do

No better place for kids

With so many child-friendly attractions close to Woodstock vacation rentals, kids will never be bored. Clark's Trading Post have been thrilling kids (or kids at heart) with their water blaster boats, Chinese Acrobatic Troupe and steam train for almost a century. Further north, in Jefferson, you can experience the magic of Christmas all year round at the festive-themed waterpark, with mini coasters and log flumes in Santa's Village. You can create more family memories at Story Land which has a host of rides and shows. In winter, you can explore the lit-up slides and tunnels at the annual Ice Castles.

Activities

See it from above and below

There's no better way to take in the mighty White Mountain National Forest than seeing it from the air on one of the scenic helicopter pleasure flights. Back on the ground, you can hike along the beautiful little wooden boardwalks which hug and crisscross the rocky babbling streams and waterfalls. Perhaps even more scenic is the seriously photogenic Rocky Gorge, a series of cascades eroded by the Swift River over thousands of years. If you're bringing kids, they'll love the exciting zip lines and suspension bridges that cross the forested park.

Weather

The trails are yours

Unless you're spending a night under the stars, you may want to book up a Woodstock vacation rental during the spring or fall. The summers are hot and crowded, but if you visit during the shoulder months, before or after the school break, the weather is more comfortable and the prices considerably lower. Fall is particularly scenic when the White Mountain National Forest bursts into a kaleidoscope of orange and red hues. It's still possible to secure somewhere to stay between December and February when the landscape is heavily dusted with powdery snow and the skiers hit the slopes.

Natural features

Busy beavers and nesting peregrines

The town is particularly suited to those looking to spot wildlife. Just moments away from your Woodstock vacation rental, you can be in the heart of the White Mountain National Forest which teems with hundreds of species of wildlife. As you hike through the park, it's not uncommon to spot busy beavers building their dams across the streams or shy deer darting through the trees. There are bird species here aplenty, but the highlight is undoubtedly the peregrines which were released back into the wild and now nest in the mountain cliffs.
