October will be here before we know it! It seems many school age children now get a “Fall Break” similar to a Spring Break but in the Fall so many families have a week to spend enjoying some Fall Time together- plan ahead for activities and destinations that will appeal to all!
New Hampshire- The Flume Gorge open until October 21-walking, waterfalls and lots of stairs, a covered bridge and exploring thru the woods. Not recommended for those who have trouble walking as there is a lot of walking and a lot of stairs zig zagging thru the gorge.
there is an admission charge- for a family plan on Adults $16, kids under 5 Free, and kids over 5 = $14.00 check the website for hours and up to date pricing
Antique Speedboat Rides on Lake Winnipesaukee– not a slow scenic boat though you could get on one of those as well – there are hourly scenic cruises or longer day trips but for something more authentic and exciting how about a ride on a real ChrisCraft boat from 1931. Check the website for pricing and availability!
Moulton Farm- Quarry Road- Meredith New Hampshire-
Stop by in the summer for fresh produce- a walk in the gardens and more
September the fun begins with the Corn Maze, wagon rides, cider donuts and more! Small admission price for the Corn Maze but everything else is free- and sometimes they even have free samples!
The Inn at East Hill Farm-603.242.6495
More than just an Inn- they offer all kinds of farm activities- call to see if you can pay for the day or stay longer if you wish. Milking cows and other activities for all ages on a real working farm!
weekly summer programs, special events and more! Memorable place to spend with family or friends!
FunSpot– Weirs Beach- Laconia- everybody needs a place to go if it RAINS- how about 3 floors of pinball machines, video games, indoor mini golf and bowling just to start- great place for all ages and has been there for years!
Hobo Railroad– Lake Winnipesaukee- you always waved at the man in the caboose as the train went by- well now get a chance to be in that caboose as the train circles Lake Winnipesaukee. Check the website for prices and dates www.hoborr.com
