Dixville Notch activities

We have reservations in July at The Balsam's Resort for four days, and are looking to expand our trip by a few more days. Any recommendations for additional places to stay or see? We were thinking about Montreal or Quebec City, but would prefer to keep our vacation dollars in the US.

Last summer was spent exploring the Jackson, White Mtns & Lake Winnipesaukee area, so we'd like to see something new.

We're not adverse to Maine or Vermont, either.

Thx

A little more about waht your into and like to do would help.

You are currently staying in one of three grand resorts in NH. There are no ohter areas that offer this in such a close proximity to one another.

The local chambers are:

http://www.northcountrychamber.org

http://www.twinmountain.org

http://www.umbagogchambercommerce.com

http://www.androscogginvalleychamber.com

Anyone of them will lead you to the others and events that they host, participate in or support.

When in July?

Me again, I just wanted to add that this area of Northern NH is referred to as the North Country or "The Great North Woods" region.

Most of which sits on top on the White Mountains, and not actually IN the White Mountains (a little bit is) - A long story goes along with this name. Trip Advisor amoungst other sites does not recognize that IT IS a entirely seperate region of NH and it differs in many ways from the White Mountains.

The least populated and largest county on the state of NH., unless of course you count wildlife! LOL!

Hi Tazman007 - we hope to relax, experience some of the local culture and, of course, see a few moose or other wildlife! Also like to do some 'off-road' sightseeing.

Our trip is planned for 7/20 until we get tired, bored or run out of money!

Moose Tours are available on my side of the state from Gorham north and go right by here and continue on to the ME boarder if necessary. Round trip is over 2 hours, but well worth the time invested.

Relax = You have choosen the right place to take in some down time. Some folks actually get bored when they come up here, because they have forgotten how to do just that!

I am not sure of ALL of the events, but the chamber websites and visitnh.gov are a great place to look for festivals and happenings. There is the Moffit House in Berlin that is the home of the Historical Society and the Northern Forest Hertiage Park on upper manin street in Berlin as well.

If you have time and the cash you should entertain the Mount Washington auto road as well. If your in good hiking shape, you should hike up Dixville and dance in the Table!!! (Table Rock, you'll know when (if) you get there!)

ATV's can be rented locally, if you into that and the golfing at the Colbrook and Balsam's courses is stellar. My personal favorite after dark is literally looking at the stars, you are going to be amazed at how bright they are around here as compared to CT - Just get a bit away fromm the Balsam's after datrk to make asure your away from the light pollution they create (no ill intended, just a fact).

Travel Well
