New Hampshire offers plenty of outdoor activities from sleigh and sled rides during all times of the year to scenic drives, ziplining and hiking. Cannon Mountain, Wildcat Mountain, Loon Mountain and Washington Bretton Woods all offer visitors ziplines, gondolas or aerial tours of the landscape.

Instead of ziplining, visitors can hike up Mount Adams and enjoy the thin mountain air at the AMC or Madison Spring huts. Instead of basking in nature, visitors can conquer it by mining or panning for gold at Ruggles Mine and Wild Ammonoosuc River. They can get gold fever and experience that 1865 gold rush by prospecting at Twin River Campground.

Visitors can have fun on the water at lake Winnipesaukee by practicing moonlight paddleboarding or going sailing around the Isles of Shoals. The Isles of Shoals also offers a fun day trip and is the place once enjoyed by Nathaniel Hawthorne and other notable figures. Visitors can bask in the quiet of the island or attend a writing or photography workshop.
