NH I-95 Points of Interest
Interesting palaces to see as you are travel through!

Many people merely pass though NH on I-95, headed to Maine. We're glad to be of service, but don't overlook NH's own enchantments. Selected by their interstate proximity, some are educational, some are fun, some are 'classic' NH, and some are simply unusual. Please consult their web sites as many have fees, and limited or seasonal schedules. If you are headed to a beach area, consider bringing a roll of quarters. (Parking is $2.00/hr)

These directions presume you are traveling north. Consult Google or MapQuest if traveling south.

Green indicates the travel time from the highway in minutes, and Blue indicates the amount of visit time we recommend you should plan.

Example: (10 - 90) would indicate the attraction is 10 minutes from the highway (including parking) in normal traffic, and plan on spending 90 minutes for a reasonable visit.
