After you separate, you might feel a bit depressed because you spend less time with your kids. But springtime in New Hampshire allows you to make the most of your time with them. Our state has a range of fun, family-friendly activities that will ramp up the excitement of every visit and create memories that last a lifetime. Here are our top three picks.
1. Enjoy Sugar Mapling Season
Springtime doesn’t just bring daffodils pushing through the soil or tiny green buds on trees. In New Hampshire, springtime also brings maple syrup. Maple tree sap starts to flow between mid-February through early April. During this time, sugar houses throughout the state are busy tapping trees and boiling the sap to make delicious syrup and various other maple products. Visit one (or more!) of the many sugar shacks in the state with your kids, learn all about making maple syrup, and take home some sweet treats. New Hampshire’s “Big Maple Weekend” at the end of March is an especially fun time to visit the sugar houses, as they are likely to have special activities. Still, any time during high maple sap season is an excellent time to go.
2. Go Zip-lining
If you and your kids are adventurous, why not celebrate the return of spring by taking them zip-lining? From Guilford to Newbury to Lincoln, the state has numerous outdoor recreation centers that allow you to soar from treetop to treetop, enjoying a bucolic bird’s-eye view of forests, rivers, or mountains while safely harnessed to a strong cable line. Some parks offer additional features such as bridges, rope ladders, climbing towers, and other challenges. Certain places even offer zip-lines routes appropriate for kids as young as three!
3. Explore Immersive Museums
New Hampshire has several historical museums that aim to immerse you in their subject matter, allowing you to imagine life during that period effortlessly. For example, the Canterbury Shaker Village, with its picturesque buildings, shops, and grounds, brings to life the reality of a historic Shaker community. In Portsmouth, the sprawling Strawberry Banke Museum aims to move you through over 300 years, from Indigenous history to the present day. Spend the day milling among costumed role players, observing traditional craft demonstrations, visiting historic houses, and roaming the exquisite gardens and grounds.
