    Conway, NH--outlet mall and lots of good restaurants (Muddy Moose). Lincoln, NH-- you can see the mountains (hike and bike trails) and covered bridges. Drive to the Lake's Region around Lake Winnipesaukee--Wolfeboro, Meredith, Laconia and Weirs Beach. On the way back home stop over by Hampton, Beach.

    Lot's to see! Have a great weekend.

    I took an interesting ad hoc road trip crisscrossing NE a couple of years ago...

    Lake George, NY is cool and you could spend easily spend a few days there. Although, with the Covid nuts, you may want to avoid NY.

    If you like exercise, I'd recommend Mt Mansfield in Vermont. It's a hell of a climb, but the area is beautiful. Or you could hike and camp in the White Mountains in NH and drive up Mt Washington.

    You could easily spend a few days in Bar Harbor, ME and Acadia (seemed kinda expensive to me and "resort-ish", but there's plenty to do.)

    If you're after history, Concord Mass is great. Quaint downtown area and lots of museums and historical sites.

    If you like the beach, I'd recommend Hampton Beach, NH for an amusement park-type vibe or Newport, RI for a laid-back vibe. If you want to spend LOTS of money, hop over to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket.

    There's also the Finger Lakes wine country in NY and you could visit Watkins Glen. And for a 5 hour trip, you could go to Alexandria Bay, NY and go explore some of the castles in the Thousand Islands region... I was there 2 weeks ago and the ice was almost all melted.

    If you do go to Concord or Nashua ( I wouldnt ) dont mail anything . Two of the absolute worst performing post offices ever in the history america. I do a lot of business with a couple guys there in the areas . You wont get 100 percent of your packages but you can count on 33 percent or better to be about a month late .

    I grew up about 30-35 miles south of Lake George. It's a good place to go prior to Memorial Day and after Labor Day; but stay away during the peak season unless you like crowds.

    There's the lake itself - swimming, canoeing, kyacking, water skiing, parasailing. And there's the Lake George Steamboat Company if you'd like to tour the lake in the Minnehaha paddleboat.

    At the south end of the lake is the restored Fort William Henry ... which you may recall as the British fort that the French set ablaze in "Last of the Mohicans".

    If you like hiking up mountain trails, there's a lot available. Prospect Mountain is on the southwest end of the lake and overlooks the village. It's has a moderate to high level of difficulty - rather steep in spots, and the trail at the bottom can best be described as a boulder strewn gully. But you can also drive to the top for a small fee (or park halfway up and then hike the top half of the mountain). There's also numerous other trails on the east and west sides of the lake.

    There's a number of Adirondack museums (included in this list) within an hour or so of Lake George - my favorite is the one at Blue Mountain Lake. And if you go there, then you might want to consider hiking Blue Mountain (really great views).

    Fort Ticonderoga is slightly over a hour north of Lake George village on the East of Lake Champlain. You may recall that Colonel Knox transported cannons from Fort Ticonderoga to Continental forces outside Boston in the Revolutionary War. And there's the Saratoga Battlefield (turning point of the Revolution) less than an hour south of the village - though it looks to be closed due to COVID right now.

    If you don't mind an hour and a half drive, there's Ausable Chasm to the north. The gorge was carved out by glacial melt at the end of the last period of glaciation some 15,000 years ago.
    Here at RPF, we don't promote every conspiracy theory - merely the ones we've been made aware of. If there's anything that Ron Paul followers know, it's that bad things don't just happen; bad things require dark and insidious forces acting in concert and in secret to make them happen.

    When I was young one summer I took a 411 mile float down the Wabash River . Takes awhile though .

    We went to Lake George for a weekend last fall. It was very nice. I Thank everyone for their input. I forwarded this thread to my wife and she booked us a get away to some place in NH for mid May. We are going on a train ride, hiking, and some other stuff. I think she booked an all inclusive place where meals are included. When I know more details I will post. Thanks again.
