Jackson, NH

Every member of the family will enjoy a family getaway to beautiful Jackson, New Hampshire. The kids will delight in the wealth of outdoor recreational activities, and parents will truly appreciate the charming beauty of this old-fashioned village. In Jackson, nature is always beckoning: from the gentle hills to the roaring waterfalls cascading over majestic mountains, your family will be fully surrounded by beauty on a Jackson family vacation. When in need of a break from playing in the great outdoors, head into the quaint town of Jackson, where dining, shopping and entertainment are all part of the family vacation package. A Jackson family vacation has the added benefit of keeping your family close together as the close-knit community of Jackson inspires family togetherness. Unlike a family vacation in a large city, where varied interests can bring distance on a family vacation, in Jackson you will be taken back to the days when families made it a priority to spend quality time with one another. The old fashioned values and mores of Jackson will bring the whole family closer.

Jackson Sights

On a Jackson family vacation, stopping to see the Jackson Covered Bridge is a must. Romantic and old-fashioned, this covered bridge has been featured as a classic American covered bridge for decades. Another great way to get a feel for your family vacation destination is by visiting the Jackson Historical Museum, which is interesting enough to keep even the little ones in the family entertained. Stop by the Jackson Historical Society to gain insight into the lovely town of Jackson. As a bonus, the Jackson Historical Society is located in the old Town Hall, a great place to pull out your camera on your family vacation. White, grand and in the traditional American colonial style, the Town Hall is straight out of a postcard. A great way to take in the Jackson sights on your family vacation is by hitting the open road: the Mt. Washington Auto Road is one of the most beautiful drives in the United States. The fall is when the changing leaves set off a symphony of color, but any time of year that you embark on this lovely drive on your family vacation, you are guaranteed astounding beauty. For added excitement, take a Bicknells Thrush Tour on your Jackson family vacation. Bicknells Thrush are extremely rare birds and one of their few habitats is Mt. Washington. Catching sight of one of these exceptional creatures will be a definite highlight of your Jackson family vacation.

Summer Activities in Jackson

The premier destination on a Jackson family vacation is Black Mountain, whose pristine wilderness has attracted families on family vacations for centuries. The Black Mountain resort offers a plethora of exciting activities, whether your family vacation falls during the summer, winter, or somewhere in between. In the summer months, hiking on Black Mountain takes center stage: acres of wildflowers, trees, and classic, preserved New England landscape is there for your family to enjoy on your Jackson family vacation. Horseback riding is another popular summer activity in Jackson: on Black Mountain, horse rides venture up to the 2,000 elevation mark and well-trained horses are the norm. There are even pony rides for the little ones in the family. Both novice and experienced horseback riders will enjoy this experience on a Jackson family vacation. One popular activity for the adults in the family is to spend a day golfing: the Wentworth Golf Club in Jackson is renowned and spectacular: surrounded by towering trees and within sight of the famous Jackson Covered Bridge, this golf course is definitely worth checking out on a Jackson summertime family vacation day. For a shorter golf day, play nine holes at Eagle Mountain Golf Club, this winds along the Wildcat River and rests above the city of Jackson. Beautiful vista views await you on every hole. If the little ones in the family have no patience for golf, another great place to head to on a warm Jackson family vacation day is Storyland, in nearby Glen. Storyland is all about kids and one low admission price includes unlimited rides and entertaining, interactive shows all day long. There is also a daily circus with fun, exciting performances. Storyland is a great place to make unforgettable family vacation memories in Jackson.

Wintertime Activities in Jackson

Wintertime is a magical time on a Jackson family vacation. There is snow on the ground, yet the village of Jackson looks as if it is fresh off a storybook page. The Currier and Ives scenery may look fake, but it is certainly authentic, and a perfect way to enjoy a slice of a distant past on a Jackson family vacation. Enjoy this old-fashioned winter splendor on your Jackson family vacation by heading over to Nestlenook Estate and Resort, which offers authentic sleigh rides (which the kids will love) on heated sleighs (which Mom and Dad will love!) Nestlenook is also the home to small and lovely Emerald Lake, whose frozen depths provides the perfect surface for ice skating. If even that is still not enough for you family vacation, then strap on a pair of rented snow shoes and take to the pristinely maintained trails. There is absolutely no better way to enjoy a lovely Jackson winter day then by exploring the rich outdoors. For thrills and chills, head back up to Black Mountain for wintertime fun on your Jackson family vacation: the ski area is nicely varied for all activity levels. There are no thronging crowds at Black Mountain: in fact, at times, you may feel like you and your family are the only ones on the mountain. As the first ski area in New Hampshire, Black Mountain is still the best, with its family friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices.

Dining in Jackson

The quaint downtown area of Jackson Village is a great place to explore on a Jackson family vacation. Whether Mom and Dad want a romantic night out, or the whole family wants to go to a place where they can be loud and raucous, there are lots of dining options on a Jackson family vacation. Red Fox Bar and Grill, just across from the Jackson Covered Bridge, seems like it was designed for a family vacation: an extensive wine list, wood fired pizzas, and a playroom for the kidís guarantees that every member of the family will enjoy themselves. Take a step back in time on your Jackson family vacation by stopping by Shovel Handle, an authentic Yankee pub that sells the rustic, delicious cuisine that is often associated with pub fare. Sit fireside and enjoy live entertainment and have a spectacular family vacation experience. For a light bite for a great family vacation lunch, try the About Town J Deli and Country Store, where sweet treats, organic wines, hearty sandwiches and wraps are all available for family vacationers. This is a perfect place to get a picnic to go as you set out for a fun-filled Jackson family vacation day. While waiting for your food to be prepared, browse the store for the perfect unique souvenir of your Jackson family vacation.

Jackson has so much to discover on a family vacation. All seasons of the year are the perfect time to plan your Jackson family vacation. Families from all over the world will enjoy time spent here: the quaint village-type nature of this close knit community will amaze you, the surrounding beauty will entrance you, and the friendly hospitality of your family vacation lodging will charm you. On your Jackson family vacation, you will discover an old fashioned paradise!
