I-93 in New Hampshire

Jump to last reply

I will be driving from Cape Cod back to Montreal in August, and will probably take the I-93. I will be with my family, including a small toddler and a baby. We're looking for somewhere cute or scenic to stop along the way in New Hampshire. I thought about Littleton. Anywhere else I should consider?

Thanks.

    Once you get to NH, I93 becomes more wooded except for the area around exits and Manchester NH and Concord where you can see stores and mills. Well, I93 thru Manchester is mostly wooded but if you take I293 you'll get the view of the old mills. You might want to consider a stop in Manchester because of all the restaurant choices. I293 and I93 merge before you get to the Hooksett toll booth. In Concord there are several parks. I believe there are picnic tables behind the Everett Arena on Loudon Rd. You would take exit 14, turn right, go over bridge and the arena will be on your left. There's trees and the Merrimack River is right there. People might be boating. There are areas along the Merrimack where kayaking is very popular. So this is scenic but right in the middle of city congestion. There's also a skate board park at the far end of the parking lot. Plenty of grass and trees, though. There are hiking and biking trails. I'm not very familiar with the parks but the biggest is probably White's Park near downtown Concord, not far from I93.
    Further north at exit 17 there's a park and ride lot. You can walk down to the Merrimack River from there. Popular swimming area and you might see a bald eagle but not sure it's safe for toddlers. Some areas of the river have nice sandy beaches and some don't. The Hannah Dustin memorial is here. If you turn right and go into town of Boscawn, there's a sign on your right for Jamie Welch Memorial park. I don't recall a playground, however. This is where a lot of people put there kayaks into the river. The river is good for swimming.
    If you turn left coming off I93 and then left at the intersection of Mountain Rd, Apple Crest Farm is just a short ways on your right. They have a very small playground (unshaded) but it will be blueberry season and it might be fun to pick your own for snacks (great with vanilla yogurt).

    Littleton has a great ice cream shop so it would be a nice choice.
