Saco River Tubing
âIn my opinion, tubing the Saco River is one of the most fun things to do in North Conway, NH!
The Saco River is 136 miles long. It flows from up in Crawford North (The Notch), New Hampshire and empties into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Maine.
The Saco River is beautiful and it's one of North Conway's largest and most popular attractions. It's a great destination for folks of all ages.
Whether you like to tube or kayak, sunbathe, swing from a rope swing, swim, play in the water or fish, the Saco River will make you smile!
The North Conway area offers several places that rent out tubes, kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards plus they provide a shuttle between their put-in and take-out sites.
Pack up all your friends and/or family, grab a cooler with lunch and sunscreen and go enjoy a long, relaxing afternoon in the cool water of the Saco River.
Don't forget to take the GoPro so you can enjoy it over and over again.
Tubing the Saco River is so much fun I even wrote a blog called, "Things To Do in North Conway, NH - Tubing the Saco River."
Frolicking in the Waterfalls at Dianas Baths
Diana's Baths is one of my favorite places in North Conway, NH. The scenery is always changing and even more than that - beautiful!
The falls might be a mere 75 foot drop from start to finish but the flow for a long distance and they look different in every season.
Take a look at the picture above of Dianas Baths in the middle of winter!
In winter, they ice over and then the snow builds up on the ice and you can hardly see the water flow.
Spring brings quite a show of raging water and it too dangerous to cross on foot.
Summer is the perfect time to wade around cooling off, sliding down the rocks on your butt or hiding behind the falling water in a few places.
Fall usually calms Dianas Baths down. Lack of rainfall, warm days and smaller crowds, make it perfect for even little tykes to play around and explore.
Don't forget to bring your camera. Fall is a perfect time to get gorgeous foliage photos at Dianas Baths. They are surrounded by mature maple trees and the reds and oranges look so beautiful as a backdrop to the falls!
Dianas Baths are handicap accessible and they have bathroom facilities!
The waterfalls are a very easy 0.6 mile walk from the parking lot to the falls.
You could spend your whole day playing around in the cool pools andon the natural water slides, and then warm up by sun bathing out on the rocks.
You are in the White Mountain National Forest so don't forget the sunscreen, the bug spray and to leave the parking fee in the box in the parking lot!
It does tend to be crowded in the summer, buth there is a meaning behind the madness!
It's a great way to spend the afternoon at any age. If your girlfriend getaway is melting the summer heat this is a great destination for you and your friends.
For more information on the history of Dianas Baths, take a look at our blogs, "The Insider's Guide to North Conway" or "Doesn't Everyone Feel Happy Playing in a Waterfall?"â
