New Hampshire Farm Museum
If you’re a regular reader of our blog, then you probably know how much we love the New Hampshire Farm Museum! Located just a short 3 miles from our Camp-Resort, this is a prime location for family fun in Milton. Take your kiddos to pick fresh strawberries, feed the animals, or even sign up for one of their educational programs!
M/S Mt. Washington Cruises
Spend a day on the water aboard the M/S Mt. Washington! Located on Lake Winnipesaukee, there are variety of scenic cruises and dinner cruises available for anyone to join. Your family will love taking in the natural beauty of New England as you listen to your guided tour of the lake. Plus, they offer lunch service for those who get hungry during the trip (if you haven’t already paid to reserve a table for dinner, of course!)
