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 ( takes place in September and promotes the Scottish culture with traditional games, shows and parades; the White Mountain Oktoberfest (, 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 ( is an unmissable annual beer festival held in June.
