When it comes to planning a summer vacation, most people might be thinking about heading to the beach for a good time. While that’s not a bad choice, it’s also not the only choice—and definitely not all that summer is about. In the heart of New Hampshire’s beautiful White Mountains, there’s a wealth of outdoor activities and adventures that makes summertime so much more than staying cool. It’s about entertainment, excitement, and bringing home endless memories.
At Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa, you have plenty of fun activities waiting for you. They’ve recently partnered with Mahoosuc Outdoors for whitewater rafting adventures that will get your adrenaline pumping. Mahoosuc’s experienced guides will lead you and your family down the Androscoggin River. Included in your trip, a delicious lunch will be served at Mahoosuc’s beautiful restored barn which overlooks the surrounding Mahoosuc Mountain Range. A shuttle will bring you to and from this incredible experience so you won’t’ have to worry about transportation.
Another new addition to their summer roster are rig rides provided by Mutt Mountain Dog Sledding! These fun-filled trips are each half an hour long and take you through the off-road trails around Mountain View. And if that’s not enough to get you excited, Mountain View Grand offers plenty of other options to choose from. Bask in the incredible views on a mountain biking trip; the resort provides rentals onsite as well as a refurbished trail system that winds around their 1,700-acre property. Hiking is another great way to get close to nature and there are a variety of local trails nearby at Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge and Weeks State Park.
"We have some great evenings planned this summer,” said Elaine Frenette, Activities Director at the resort. “On top of our classic campfire and s'mores we also have our Wednesday night concert series, Friday night champagne socials, and late night dive-in, movies on Mondays and Thursdays on our 16' movie screen!"
Mountain View’s Summer Concert Series is a highlight of their summer experience. A variety of local artists perform Wednesday evenings on their Club House Lawn complimentary to guests, which is the perfect way to unwind. Onsite, their indoor and outdoor pools provide you with a great place to cool off and play with the kids. And speaking of the kids, the resort’s Mountaineering Club offers fun games, arts and crafts, and entertainment specifically catered toward the youngsters.
