I'm new to this board and I don't think I posted this properly earlier.
My husband and I have made reservations for the Mountain View Grand hotel in Whitefield NH for Memorial Day weekend for our anniversary weekend. Although we will be spending some time at the hotel and hopefully a couple of spa treatments, I am looking for recommendations for some other things to do in the area (beginner hiking or kayaking) to enjoy the outdoors and the scenery. Also looking for some restaurant recommendations in that area as well. Thanks in advance.
