Don’t Miss This…Fun Winter Activities

We are still in the thick of winter! Some people enjoy skiing, snowboarding, building snow-people, and other outdoor activities. Others prefer to spend time inside with some hot cocoa and watch a movie, play board games, or participate in some arts and crafts. At our area agency, we understand that winter can be a difficult time for many people – so we want to give you some ideas and activities that will hopefully put a smile on your face. 

Visit the New Hampshire Ice Castles (Woodstock, NH)Ice Castles is an award-winning frozen attraction located in five cities across North America including Woodstock, NH. The experience is built using hundreds of thousands of icicles hand-placed by professional ice artists. The castles include breathtaking LED-lit sculptures, frozen thrones, ice-carved tunnels, slides, fountains and much more.

Visit a Ski Resort – Many people in our state love to hit the slopes and ski all winter long! Check out nine of the best ski resorts in NH and visit one that fits your skill level, location, and price range. This activity is a great way to view the beauty of our state. 

Wordle & other online games and apps – The word game Wordle has exploded in popularity throughout the first part of 2022. This five-letter game may only take a few minutes but it will get your mind thinking! Since it’s popularity, spin-offs have been created such as Nerdle (which includes numbers) and Mywordle (where you can use a word of your choice and send it to family and friends for them to guess). Some other apps/online games to enjoy are: Daily Crossword, Shoutrageous, and Trivia Crack.

Go Hiking – New Hampshire has some gorgeous views year-round! Check out some of the many accessible trails throughout our state and visit some of them this winter.

Carriage Shack Farm (Londonderry, NH) is reservation only from December to March, but you can still enjoy their pony rides during the winter. This family-owned farm has been a partner of ours at our Kids Carnival in the past!
