Skiing isn't just for the Rockies. While the western Range of the United States has become synonymous with powder, there are plenty of good skiing options in the East Coast region as well. Loon Mountain Ski Resort, located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, has drawn recreational skiers to the town of Lincoln since it opened its doors in 1966. Although Lincoln's economic roots are in the logging and timber industry, its shift to a tourism-based industry began in the 1850s, when the railroad began transporting tourists to the area, interested in seeing the natural wonders of the White Mountains. The most famous of these is, perhaps, the Flume Gorge, a natural gorge that extends 800 feet at the bast of Mount Liberty with walls that reach 70 to 90 feet in height made of Conway granite, a particular type of granite named after the town of Conway, New Hampshire, where it was discovered. Lincoln is a mountainous town that prides itself on its natural expanses. Tourists are attracted to the area because of its pristine air and its gorgeous canyons. Lincoln's main source of income is from its tourist attractions, which heavily cater to hikers, climbers, and skiers. Unlike larger ski resort towns, Lincoln caters to travelers during all of the four seasons. You can enjoy the crisp, cold air and vertical trails of Loon Mountain Ski Resort in the winter and, during the other three seasons, you can do a great number of other outdoor activities and sights.
Even though Lincoln is small, you can still find yourself busy. This city is filled with breathtaking mountains, parks, and greenery. If you're looking for a good climb and a good time, come down to Lincoln for tons of fun.
Combine your great outdoor experience with delicious and hearty meals provided by many fine restaurants in Lincoln, NH. Many of the area resorts have fantastic dining options, so you won't have to venture too far from your room to enjoy a good meal. Many restaurants serve some form of traditional or contemporary American cuisine, but you will also find Asian and Italian culinary influences. Climb aboard the Cafe Lafayette Dinner Train for a truly unique dining experience.
Nothing beats that fresh mountain air more than the aroma of a hot cup of coffee brewing in the morning. The cafes in Lincoln provide that experience and more to start your day of adventure. Since New Hampshire is known for its maple syrup, it is no small wonder that you can find a number of breakfast joints flipping pancakes just waiting to be smothered in that sticky sweet stuff.
There are a few options in Lincoln if you want to sit back and relax with friends and a cold one. For instance, you can indulge in quality burgers with a brew, hang out and watch a game, or enjoy the warm, laid-back atmosphere of some pub. Some places also offer live music, but you may have to venture out to nearby Woodstock or North Conway for more nightclub options.
Most people come to Lincoln to enjoy the outdoors, and there are quite a few sporting goods stores in the area to cater to their needs. Of course, if you prefer to stay indoors, there are shops in the White Mountains to suit your needs as well.
Best Time to Visit

Best Time to Visit

In New England, all four seasons are very distinct and, as a result, it is quite difficult to say which is the absolute best one for a trip to Lincoln and in New Hampshire in general. If you are a ski-lover and can't stand high temperatures, then winter is definitely your season: Loon Mountain Resort opens its slopes and is a great place for skiing and snowboarding. Also in winter, don't forget to pay a visit to the iconic Christmas Loft, a truly magical Christmas village with lots of surprises for the whole family. While in winter you can ski, in the warmer seasons of the year you can explore the beautiful New Hampshire nature and go hiking on its beautiful mountain trails. Summers are usually hot and sunny, but springtime is particularly interesting, as the tree saps are transformed into a New Hampshire speciality: maple syrup. Last but not least, fall: its beautiful, bright colors make it the favorite time to visit for most tourists, who can also assist and take part in apple and pumpkin picking. As for the main events, Lincoln hosts three big annual festivals: the NH Highland Games & Festival (www.nhscot.org) takes place in September and promotes the Scottish culture with traditional games, shows and parades; the White Mountain Oktoberfest (www.loonmtn.com/experience/events/white-mountain-oktoberfest#.WuHHIIhuaUn), which takes place during the fall foliage season (in October), takes you straight to the Bavarian Alps and lets you enjoy amazing German beer, food and music along with gorgeous views of the White Mountains; and the New England Brewfest (www.nebrewfest.com) is an unmissable annual beer festival held in June.
