My wife asked for a weekend to New Hampshire. Well, actually, ‘New Hamster,’ in the sometimes playful language of the bilingual couple.
We have been through the lobster shack coast between Massachusetts and Maine. This is a ‘Live Free or Die’ journey into the interior. So far the only confirmed stop is a pilgrimage to the home of the chicken tender.
We are driving up from Boston rather than Manchester (JetBlue PointsMatch), and only have the weekend. The big summer draws appear to be the White Mountains and the lakes region of Laconia/Gilford.
Accommodation in White Mountain gateways Conway and North Conway are eye-popping for peak summer travel, nor have we found a screaming deal by the lakes. We may base ourselves in Concord and day trip on Saturday up to the White Mountains. The Holiday Inn Concord is 15,000 points/night and looks ok if we get a renovated room.
Readers, what are your New Hampshire/Hamster recommendations? As always, food is key. Extra bonus if there is good seafood lurking inland.
