BEST FREE HIKING GEAR
Appalachian Mountain Club Highland Center at Crawford Notch, Bretton Woods
Don’t let any lack of equipment stop you from exploring the White Mountains: Free gear from L.L. Bean is offered to all guests. Rest assured, these aren’t your older sibling’s hand-me-downs. We’re talking top-of-the-line goodies like sleeping bags, backpacks, hiking boots, and more. Rates vary by lodging type (communal bunkroom, lodge bunkroom, private lodge) and meal plan. Off Route 302. 603-278-4453; outdoors.org

BEST KIDDIE CONE
Kimball Farm, Jaffrey
Parents get their money’s worth with immense kids’ portions of homemade ice-cream flavors such as raspberry-chocolate chip and peanut-butter chocolate. And if that’s not enough to win over the younger set, look for low-flying propeller plans coming in for a landing at Silver Ranch Airpark next door. Kiddie cone: $3.75. 158 Turnpike Road. 603-532-5765; kimballfarm.com
