Dear Parents/Guardians, 

We made it—February vacation is here! I thought I would share with you different ideas that your family could do during vacation time. I did a little research on a few websites and thought I would share what I found. This is not a full list of places that provide these opportunities, but it is a start. Feel free to check out VisitNH.gov or WMUR-Escape Outside for more details and ideas.
