Jackson, NH is a resort town in Carroll County, amongst the White Mountain National Forest. The town was settled way back in 1772. At the beginning of Jackson’s history it was often used be wealthy landowners as a summer escape. Now because of the town’s access to Mount Washington, the national forest, and other ski resort, which offer over 150 kilometers of ski trail systems it is said to be one of the best places to go skiing and go for a vacation on the East Coast.
Jackson may be an outdoor paradise but in case of a rainy day or poor skiing abilities there are other ways to experience the city. It might be a small resort town but there are multiple spas and wellness centers where visitors can recharge and relax after a long day of exploring or tumbling down the slopes. Shopping is also a draw here; some nice boutiques and art galleries offer locally made goods and make for classy souvenirs.
The Museum of White Mountain Art in Jackson is an excellent place for visual history buffs as it presents Jackson’s history through locally inspired art.
The town’s most famous landmark is the Honeymoon Bridge, which is an old covered bridge overlooking the river and the mountains. It is called Honeymoon Bridge because lots of newly weds used Jackson as a honeymoon destination.
To spend some nice time outdoors go and visit Glen Ellis Falls in the Washington Valley. There are lots of different trails here that reach the waterfalls, so hikers can opt for easy or harder routes. Also be sure to see the nearby Diana’s Baths, a beautiful, multi level waterfall which does not freeze over in the winter.
The closer to the slopes the better! Many of the mountain homes that take advantage of their location are stunning, with large windows and outdoor hot tubs.
