Family Friendly Hike Arethusa WaterFalls Coliseum Falls Bemis Brook Falls

Family Friendly Hike Arethusa WaterFalls Coliseum Falls Bemis Brook Falls

from the Bartlett Inn.  We enjoyed a 2.5 hour hike to the falls with the kids, dog and adults too!  Hiking to WaterFalls is a fun thing to do with Children in the White Mountains. The rain from the night before and the sprinkle of the morning added to the flow of the falls!  We often tell guests who feel put off by the weather that there is a bright side to a rainy day:  It makes the Waterfalls flow very big!  So if you have the right equipment…waterproof hiking boots and jacket and non cotton pants and it is not too cold out you will not melt in the rain and will get to see the New Hampshire Waterfalls at their best!  We recommend the Bemis Brook Trail for the first part of the hike so you can enjoy the granite slabs with steps and cascading waterfalls along the way.  The climb back to the Arethusa Trail is steep and slippery so be sure to hold onto firm roots and and rocks.  It is only about 200 meters and then you rejoin the main trail.  Kids love the boardwalks and the cool breeze and mist coming off the falls too!  We ate lunch at the bottom of the falls and the sun came out to warm us!  We took the Arethusa trail back and it returned much quicker then on the climb up.  We saw a huge toad, a little peeper frog, garter snake, chipmunks and squirrels too. Stay at the kid friendly Bartlett Inn near StoryLand NH and enjoy natures own amusement park.  we will give you ideas for Family Friendly Hikes in New Hampshire and other fun things to do with kids near North Conway!  1 800 292 2353

Story Land Glen NH Circus is Awesome this year!!

The Circus at Story Land NH is excellent this year, 2011. Not to say it was not good in the prior years but there have a been a few changes that are perfect. Instead of 3 long acts there are now about 7 short acts. The timing is really perfect for the shorter attention span of children (and tired parents for that matter!). Every second is a clap and a thrill and then the next stunning act is on. The kids in the audience love the fact that two of the star performers are children too! The circus tent is the real thing and the costumes and acts are Las Vegas Quality! There is popcorn, cotton candy and drinks for sale. Stay at the Bartlett Inn near North Conway lodging 28 August 2011 -2 September 2011 for 2 or more consecutive nights and get 2 FREE Storyland tickets! Call 1 800 292 2353.

Tubing the Saco River from Bartlett NH to North Conway New Hampshire a blast!


Saco River Tubing fun White Water Bartlett NH

After 8 years of exploring North Conway, Jackson and Bartlett in the White Mountains of New Hampshire we had the chance to explore the section of the Saco River from Humphreys Ledge in Bartlett through to the First Bridge in North Conway.  The Bartlett Inn provides lodging near North Conway and Storyland and is a great location for tubing, kayaking and canoeing down the Saco River.  We recommend the section from North Cownay to Conway and Fryeburg in the dryer times so you do not have ot drag your boat in low spots.  There were so many beautiful deep spots along the way.  We came off our tubes and swam and dove in off rocks, even swung from trees like tarzan.  The kids loved the adventure. Better than Storyland! The adults loved that you could see every granule of sand on the bottom even in 6 feet of water.  As a caution there are some sunken trees and braches you have to be careful of.  We packed plenty of snacks and drinks and floated them on a small tube in a plastic bag.  This tubing trip took about 4.5 hours and was a fantastic day out for kids from 6 years old to adults and teens.  The river is very warm right now and the air temps in the 90s thi sweek made it the best place to keep cool! This river adventure takes some planning as you either have to set up pick up and drop off with Andes canoe and kayak rental or spot one car at the end and one at the beginning.  Sit back, relax, cool off and enjoy one of the most beautiful scenic days out in the US right here at the Bartlett Inn NH!  1 800 292 2353.

Moose in Crawford Notch NH en Route to Santa's Village

 NH.  On Us Rte 302 in Crawford Notch we saw a beautiful yearling Moose.  She just stood 5 feet from the side of the road and let us take pictures for 10 minutes.  She was a beauty!  What a way to start the day!  Santa’s Village was excellent.  We had two families with 6 year olds and 15 year olds and all ages had a great time!  There is a great mix of rides even for small children.  Part of the fun is for the kids to do a Alphabet punch card where elves around the park are different letters of the alphabet.  At the end kids submit the card for a diploma and a surprise.  We thought it was great that each sleigh on the sleigh ride was equipped with an umbrella just in case!  We also purchased a snow globe with our picture on it.  It is our family tradition.

The new water park is fantastic.  We were at Whales Tale in Lincoln NH last week and it is a similar contraption to their new playground.  Large water playground with at least 5 slides stairs, squirters, and a giant bucket that empties every 5 minutes dousing whoever is below!  Absolutely fantastic.  The kids loved it ..especially the 15 year olds!
