Experience the Fun in Concord, NHLet Our Concierge Enhance Your Visit to New Hampshire's Main Street with Activities for Everyone
Take a Hike
New Hampshire has 93 state parks and some of the country’s most challenging and rewarding hikes, including more than forty 4,000-footers – most notably Mt. Washington, the highest peak on the Eastern Seaboard – as well as popular routes along the Appalachian Trail, like the Franconia Ridge Trail.
Space Out in Concord
This history of American space exploration is on display at The McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center in Concord, named for New Hampshire native Alan Shepard, a Mercury astronaut and the first American in space, and Christa McAuliffe, the New Hampshire educator and first “Teacher in Space” who was tragically lost aboard space shuttle Challenger...
New Hampshire's Rich Heritage
Take a step back in time at the Canterbury Shaker Village, just 20 minutes north of The Hotel Concord in the rolling foothills of the White Mountains. Learn the history of the Canterbury Shakers, who established the village in 1792 as the home of their religious group, known for its ecstatic dance in worship and communal lifestyle.
Down on the Farm
New Hampshire has a wonderful bounty of fresh food produced by local farmers who take great pride in quality and flavor. Learn how to make maple syrup at Prescott Farm in Laconia or taste the apple cider at Gould Hill Farm.
Some of the best scenery in New England lies along abandoned railway lines, which prompted the owners of Concord’s Scenic RailRiders to create a custom Rail Bike that allows you to pedal along a six-mile stretch of old Northern Railroad track that winds through woods and farmland and over the Merrimack River at several crossings.
Fly Like an Eagle
If gliding through mountainside treetops on a zipline is the thrill you seek, The Hotel Concord is conveniently located an hour’s drive from several of the state’s premier aerial adventure parks.
