New Hampshire Tourist Traps

  • Deuling Gorges! Flume vs. Lost River

    Which one of these is a tourist trap? Answer: one of them is!What does THAT mean??? I mean that there really is no need to see both of them - one or the other will do. I saw them both in one day, which, by the way, is very easy to do. Each has it's advantages and disavantages...FLUME GORGE:Pros - on the beaten track, more historical, the main gorge...

  • Six Gun City- BORING!

    I wasn't too sure where to put this but decided on Tourist trap! We went to Six Gun City last week and I'll never go again. the Main Part of the park was extremely boring. They had a little cowboy type town set up. It could have been really cool if there were hired actors but they used Dummies. You look in the jail and see a store mannequin ......

  • Cannon Mt

    Cannon Mt...Ski resort by winter, Mt. Bike or hike by summer (ok you can do that too in the winter, but I'd not recommend it).

    On Rte. 3 near Franconia Notch there's a horrible place where they make bears stand on the top of very high platforms and haul up food that tourists have put in baskets attached to long ropes. At least, I think that's what's happening. It looked too mean to me, so I didn't stop.And speaking of Franconia Notch, the view of the Old Man of the...

    Hampton Beach is a great place, but if you are traveling with tiny companions you may want to go to one of the beaches just north or south of Hampton. The water is still great and they all have indoor plumbing and usually a snack shack. This way you will beat the traffic and there's room for the kids to run around without stepping on other people.
