There’s a reason the Red Jacket is a North Conway crowd-pleaser. The breathtaking views and comfortable rooms and lofts make for a relaxing, grown-up getaway, while the multiple entertainment options keep kids engaged. The hotel centerpiece is the indoor water park. Ride the surf in the wave pool, slip down the slides and tubes, or splash through a manmade downpour. Alternatively, head offsite to explore the White Mountain National Forest or nearby theme parks.

Depending on the season, you might spy the black-bellied woodpecker, spruce grouse, Bicknell’s thrush, boreal chickadee or a variety of warblers.
