The high point of the Kancamagus is near Mount Kancamagus, and is closer to the Lincoln side than the North Conway side. Most of the 34 mile road is twisting & turning, stunning views out every window, and plenty of places to pull off the road and take pictures. There are steep hills & short hikes, water falls & rocky rivers, foot bridges to cross, and beautiful craggy mountains. There are no restaurants, hotels, gas stations or conveniences of any sort. We typically pack coolers with sandwiches, chips, fruits & drinks and chose a comfy rock on the Swift River (Conway side of the Kanc). Rocky Gorge can get really crowded during summer weekends and Columbus Day Weekend, but there are PLENTY of other spots. Careful not to slip on wet rocks--it's easy to misjudge just how much force the water travels at, and people have been pulled downriver with severe injury and worse... Enjoy, and remember that old saying "Take only pictures and leave only footprints"

Default Nashua, N.H.

The carousel at FunWorld, an arcade in a castle-shaped building in Nashua, N.H. that has a wide variety of games. There's anything from Pacman, air hockey, four-player racing, and Dance Dance Revolution. There's a free two-level parking garage right next to it and the prices aren't too bad. Basically, it's a great place for families with younger kids.
