A natural doorway to the past, Polar Caves gives families an underground adventure through a network of caves and passageways formed by a retreating glacier during an age when woolly mammoths still roamed the earth. Encompassing a stretch near Hawk's Cliff, the highlight of Polar Caves Park is the caves themselves, which wind underground through the rock, twisting and turning before reemerging at the surface. Self-educating explorers can guide themselves through the subterranean walkways, where escaped slaves, Prohibition-era rumrunners, and angry teenage saber-toothed tigers found safety. Previous occupants have left behind evidence of their hidden lives, including a wood-burning stove and cider press. Along the trails, both above ground and underground, educational opportunities abound, with signs proclaiming local history and distinguishing local flora and fauna. Diminutive Dr. Dolittles enjoy practicing their deer whispering at the petting zoo, and landlocked fans flock to the birds at the waterfowl display.

Surrounded by nearly 800,000 acres of the White Mountain National Forest, Waterville Valley Ski Resort enlivens winter-weary visitors with miles of powdery slopes and myriad winter activities. Flee cityscapes marred by mud-splattered snow banks and chain-smoking snowmen and find frosty refuge on Waterville's 4,000-foot mountain. Twelve lifts serve more than 50 adrenaline-tingling trails, with varied terrain suitable for all styles and skill levels—from first-time bunny slopers to half-pipe acrobats and ski-savvy mogul-tamers. The Town Square Condominiums, located in the center of Waterville's self-contained mountain village, provide tuckered snow surfers with a cozy place to warm their mittens and reminisce about the day’s most distinctive snowflakes. Each one-bedroom condo is outfitted with a queen bed, full bathroom, and fully equipped kitchen.
Sculpted into tree-studded mountain slopes, Ragged Mountain Golf Club's 18-hole course plots a winding path over dramatic elevation changes. When played from the double black diamond tees—the club borrows skiing terminology in an homage to the winter activities hosted at the same site—club pros compare the layout to a U.S. Open course and advise only scratch golfers or those with remote-controlled golf balls to brave the tips. Along with tight tree lines and rolling terrain up and down the mountain, the course runs over streams that come into play on 14 holes. With onsite lodging and golf-and-stay packages, Ragged Mountain invites golfers to set aside a weekend amid the mountain air. In the winter, Ragged Mountain activates a high-speed, six-person chairlift, from which skiers, snowboarders, and snow-angel enthusiasts gain access to two mountains with 50 trails, including 11 glades and three terrain parks. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Course rating of 74.9 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 149 from the farthest tees * Four tee options
