Concord is New Hampshire’s state capital, though it is not by any means a crowded city. Its relatively central location in the state is the ideal place to base yourself when exploring the many state parks and fantastic lakes that make the Granite State such a popular vacation destination. The city is rich in history too as the Merrimack River, which runs through the middle of it, powered some of New England’s earliest factories from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. Book an RV in Concord, and you can experience everything that New England has to offer.
It should also be noted that Concord is just a short distance from Boston, New England’s largest city and the intellectual capital of America. If you’re thinking of making day trips into Boston, the most convenient way to do it is to park at the end of the city’s commuter rail lines (Haverhill and Newburyport are two of the closest to Concord), then ride the train into the city.
Before the invention of the automobile, the rolling hills of New England were crisscrossed by dozens of rail lines – the only way to easily move people and goods through the region. When highways were built, these lines became unnecessary, but fortunately, when the tracks were removed, their rights of way were converted into some amazing rail trails for hikers and cyclists to enjoy. One of the most impressive is the Northern Rail Trail, which stretches for nearly 60 miles, from nearby Boscawen to Lebanon, which is adjacent to the famed Dartmouth College. While you probably won’t complete the whole trail when you get an RV rental in Concord, there are several sections that can easily be hiked in a day.
A trip to New Hampshire wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Lakes Region in the central part of the state. Lake Winnipesaukee is the crown jewel of the area and one of the most popular spots for boating, paddling, and fishing during the summer months. If you hope to get out on the water, consider renting a kayak from one of the sporting goods stores or outfitters in Concord.
If you don’t feel like driving to the fantastic trail systems or lakes outside of Concord, one of the best hikes in the area doesn’t even require leaving the city, a three-mile-long path paralleling the Merrimack River in Sewalls Falls Park. If you’re short on time when you get a motorhome rental in Concord, this is an excellent option for a stroll or a place to walk your dog.
New Hampshire is incredibly popular during the summer months with Bostonians escaping the city in favor of postcard-worthy views of the White Mountains and Lakes Region. Concord’s proximity to New England’s largest city makes it an easy trip, so expect sites to book up during peak season. One of the closest parks to the capital is Sandy Beach RV & Camping Resort. Situated on a beautiful spring-fed pond, this is one of the best spots to enjoy nature when you get a travel trailer rental in Concord; sites have access to laundry facilities, a dog park, showers, and, of course, a boat dock for getting out on the water. If you’re looking for a picturesque setting near to Concord, this will be one of your best options.
If you’re hoping to spend some time in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region, consider staying at Roberts Knoll Campground on the eastern shore of Lake Winnipesaukee. Not only do they have full hookups to accommodate your camper rental in Concord, but also a swimming pool, dog park, playground, and a pavilion for weekly events like ice cream socials and potlucks.
The state has some fantastic beaches in addition to its stunning peaks and serene alpine lakes. If some time on the sand is part of your plan when you rent an RV here, consider staying at Wadleigh Falls Campground near the town of Lee. The park offers full hookups for your Concord RV rental along with a swimming pool, laundry facilities, and showers, and is not far from Hampton, the state’s most popular beach in the summer.
Concord and many of the other communities along the Merrimack River flourished in the 19th century thanks to the waterway’s ability to power the massive machinery of the area’s textile mills. To learn more about the region’s fascinating past, check out the New Hampshire Historical Society Museum in downtown Concord. Not only do they have some great exhibits, but guest speakers frequently give presentations there too.
If you’re bringing the kids along on this adventure, you can make a stop at the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center on the northeastern end of town. It’s an interactive air and space museum dedicated to Christa McAuliffe, a Concord schoolteacher who died in the 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. Her vision to inspire children to explore the heavens lives on in an array of exhibits showcasing the wonders of spaceflight, the Hubble Telescope, and the stars in a fantastic planetarium.
New Hampshire is also a shopping mecca for New England and has several outlet malls within its borders. The mall in nearby Merrimack is one the closest options for deal hunters, and there are also a couple of traditional shopping malls within Concord itself. When you’ve finished your shopping, don’t forget to check out some of the amazing craft breweries that the state is famous for. New Hampshire is ranked as having some of the most breweries per capita, so you won’t need to go far to get a delicious brew.
