One of "America's 10 Best Towns"

Littleton is a fitting name for the small town that hugs the Ammonoosuc River just off the I-93. The buzzy Main Street that crosses the town center hosts throngs of travelers during the summers, who come to browse the gift shops and independent boutiques or sip coffee at the curbside cafes. Over the years, the town has been garlanded with awards, including being listed as one of "America's 10 Best Towns" by Outside Magazine. If you stay in a Littleton vacation rental, you'll be within easy reach of the White Mountain National Forest, a playground for hikers and adventure seekers.

Things to do

Creating family memories throughout the seasons

Your Littleton vacation rental is the perfect base from which to explore the town. The adults in the party should spend an afternoon in one of the pubs to sample several of the frothy craft brews. If you're bringing the kids, there's few places as exciting as Story Land, a theme park packed with rollercoasters and character-based shows. You can even stop by for a spot of tea with Cinderella or grab a bite with Humpty Dumpty. During the winter, the frozen slides and tunnels of the annual Ice Castles make for a magical experience for the young or young-at-heart.

Activities

Hiking trails for all abilities

Littleton has many light walking trails around the town. The Dells is particularly scenic, with wildflower-strewn hiking paths that wind their way along the water's edge. For something a little more challenging, head up to Kilburn Crags where you can admire fabulous views down over the town. Littleton's community has worked tirelessly to create the PRKR MTN Trails, a network of over 20 miles of biking and skiing trails. If all this sounds a little too much effort, practice your swing at the nearby golf club or settle down on the sunny banks of the river for a family picnic.

Weather

Summer's busiest, but not always best

This part of the world comes alive in the summer months and while the weather can be glorious, the trails and attractions can get mighty crowded. Many favor the spring, when the wildflowers are in full bloom and the slightly cooler climate and bright days are ideal for hiking. Alternatively, try to score a Littleton vacation rental during fall, when the surrounding landscape bursts into color and the trails are peaceful and quiet. Winter carpets the countryside in powdery snow and creates a playground for cross-country skiers. It's also a rather good time to visit nearby Santa's Village.

Natural features

A seriously impressive list of wildlife to spot

A Littleton vacation rental can provide a perfect blend of amenities and nature. Just a short drive away, the White Mountain National Forest is a wilderness inhabited by myriad wildlife species. If you visit during the summer, there's a seriously impressive list of colorful bird species to spot, including falcons which nest on the nearby cliffs. If you're lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of a majestic moose down in the marshy wetlands or a black bear ambling through the woods. Just be sure to pack your binoculars and camera. You're not going to want to miss this one.
