    Clark' Bears is the best place to take the family. I remember it 55 years ago and it seems like they are always improving themselves. The best place and price to take grandchildren or your own children. A must see for all ages.

    This was a cool experience. This trip consists of 2 boys (8/9) and parents. They had so much fun.

    They loved the slides but there were only 2 slides available (1 small and 1 average size). I was told that there was a larger ice slide last year. The boys also loved the snow tubing. The lines weren't too long. We enjoyed hot coco and some snacks which they sold. We didn't do the trail in the woods as we were too cold. But we enjoyed the tubing, slides and sight-seeing of course.

    It was really cold! I was surprised we stayed as long as we did. (about 2.5 hours).

    I would recommend this experience at least once.

    Another great wine tasting. This time our host was Shain.

    We really enjoyed Shain and his conversation and perspective on the wines.

    All of the staff there is always very friendly including Mark who always gives immediate feedback when you leave compliments for his staff. That’s a sign of a well run establishment where the staf follow the lead from the owner. Bravo!!!

    Thanks for all the delicious wines and good times.

    Went here with 4 kids aged 6,7,7, and 8. It was perfect for them. They could go on all the sides. The pools were clean, the park was clean. They had live music at the wave pool. We rented a cabana, and it was totally worth it. You can show up and not need to wait in the opening line to get a spot. It comes with a table for 4 people and 2 loungers. We rented a cabana at the wave pool and had shade most the entire time - which was what we wanted. The cabanas are covered, so if it rains or you are looking to stay cool. Also, our stuff felt a little more protected in the cabana. We will go again next year. Our kids had a blast. The lazy river was my favorite. Only downside was that some slides seemed to be closed, or going slower due to staffing. Staffing shortages are everywhere, but noticed it a lot up north.

    Our main reason for stopping here was for the tour of the 2 Frank Lloyd Wright houses. The tour starts at the Currier, with a bus taking the tour participants to the 2 houses. The art museum is small, but does include some famous works, including Monet, Hopper, Picasso, Matisse. Don’t go with the expectation of visiting major art museums like those in Philadelphia, the Barnes, the National Gallery or the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. Lower your expectations and you will find plenty of great art to enjoy

    We were in LIncoln for a mini vacation and discovered this place. As a photographer, I was in heaven. It isn't a long walk around the trail, but it can be a bit strenuous with the up and down hike. The Sentinel Covered bridge gives a great view of the Pemigewasset River and Liberty Gorge. Flume Gorge, with the Avalanche Waterfall, is the real star of this place, however. There is a wooden walkway (narrow at times so that I had to press up to the railing to let people pass) with wooden steps along the bottom of the gorge. But it is so worth the trip. I was beat afterwards, but I took some amazing photos.

    We visited the theatre to see school of rock, unfortunately we only got to see the first half as a member of our party took sick. The staff were incredible providing first aid and giving us privacy in a room of our own. They provided water and never left our side right up to exiting the theatre. We cannot thank them enough.

    One of my favorite spots in NH. Love hiking in Franconia. Due to Covid, need to book online; may not get in if crowded. Once there you can enjoy the beauty of the Park, as well as climb the steps/boardwalk to see the Flume Gorge.

    The Basin trail and the Basin is clearly marked. You'll know when you make it to the Basin. There are lots of pretty spots along the cement path. It is a short walk with views of the water almost the entire way.

    Lots of people were in suits and in the water at various places. I'm not sure if it is actually an area to be in the water or not as there were signs that said to stay on the trail.

    The water is crystal clear.

    After reading many of the reviews, I had to wonder what we were getting ourselves into but decided to go ahead and book tickets anyway. So glad we went! It was a lovely ride, the train was as comfortable as could be expected for a vintage car. The seating is at benches on either side of a table, and they were spacious. The crew was lovely and came through a couple of times with goodies for the kids---some coloring pages and crayons as well as paper conductor and engineer hats. I thought that was a nice touch because there's only so much, "Oh, look, the Pemi!" that young kids can take before announcing that they're bored.
    We probably wouldn't do this ride again but I'm glad that we did take the trip. It was a relaxing end to our Memorial Day weekend.

    Last year we drove up the mountain, I wanted to try something a little different as I love train rides. First off easy to get to not hard to find even with loss of cell service. Definitely purchase your tickets in advance and if you like views and not afraid of heights you want to be on the three seat side. The two seat side does not have as good views. Our Brake Man was awesome very funny very laid back. This train ride is not for anybody who's afraid of heights. Anybody going should know they are at the summit for approximately 45 minutes and you should dress accordingly. It was about 90° at the base when we get on the train and it was probably close to 60 by the time we get up to the top, very windy very chilly. There are no bathrooms on the train make sure you go before you depart! This was a very good one time experience if you've never done it I highly suggest it, but only if you really love trains and sites. You can drive up the mountain for a fraction of the cost if you are brave enough to drive on that very slim Road. Due to the price point for my family of four cost a little over $400 we will not do it a second time. But if you have young children it might be cool to do at least once.

    I have done this many times. Always beautiful. Only a short distance to walk, however be aware numerous stone steps. Something you don't want to miss. Absolutely beautiful views from the top of the falls to the bottom

    A nice relaxing area for a walk and some peace and quiet. Lots of trails and wildlife to experience.

    I have a fondness for the 'Pemi', even though my springer spaniel almost drowned in it. My dorm at Plymouth State University was named the Pemigewasset, and we used to go tubing in the river. And, it's a beautiful river with a beautiful name, so when I crossed over it to get to downtown Plymouth, it brought back great memories (except for one).

    It is amazing how a natural formation really does look like an Indian Head! Another surprise in the area! Check out the historic marker as you admire the mountain.
