850 NH Route 16
Glen, NH 03838
If you're looking for a family-friendly amusement park that is located close to your Hart's Location Inn, Story Land is the place to go. One thing that you need to keep in mind about Story Land is that it is geared towards younger children, but some of the rides will also appeal to pre-teens. Story Land features rides and shows that are all based on fables and children's stories, such as Alice's teacups and the old woman who lived in the shoe.
White Mountain Central Railroad
North Woodstock, NH 03251
To reach White Mountain Central Railroad from Glen, travel south towards Conway and then east towards North Woodstock. Finding White Mountain Central Railroad is easy because it is located in Clark's Trading Post. It's not a part of the amusement park, but actually serves as the entrance. The schedule for the train is going to vary based on the season, but the ride is 30 minutes long and covers two and a half miles. Tickets range in price from $18.00 for people age 6 to 64 to as low as $13.00 for these same riders during the fall. The fall is one of the best times to take this excursion because of how beautiful the mountains look as all of the leaves are changing for the season.
Conway Scenic Railroad
One of the best things about this attraction is that you can reach it by foot or by train, which makes it a family friendly attraction. To reach it by foot you will need to leave your Hart's Location Bed and Breakfast first thing in the morning. In order to get to the trestle you will need to hike five miles to get to the bridge, plus you will need to hike up to Frankenstein's Cliff to pass the trestle. Reaching it by train is easy as the train goes directly across the trestle. It's a sight to see because it looks like the trestle is going to fall right off the edge of the mountain.
Clark's Trading Post
North Woodstock, NH 03251
At Clark's Trading Post you will find fun for the whole family. To reach Clark's Trading Post you will need to leave Glen, travel down to Conway and then travel east to North Woodstock. Once you reach Clark's Trading Post you will be able to enjoy a show put on by trained American black bears. You can also walk around and view pieces of American history including steam trains and old style houses, such as hook and ladder houses.
