National Geographic Adventure magazine has named Plymouth one of the 50 next great adventure towns in the United States.

“Life in Plymouth is like a master class in recreation,” writes National Geographic Adventure journalist Sarah Tuff. “Wedged between Mount Washington Valley and the Granite State’s glittering Lakes Region, this college-meets-covered-bridge depot is home to the new White Mountain Exploration center, with instruction in ski touring, ice climbing, mountain biking, and rock climbing all run by Eastern Mountain Sports.”

Tuff goes on to write, “When classes aren’t in session, recess means kayaking the Pemigewasset River and exploring the 798,562-acre White Mountain National Forest.”

“Plymouth stood out because of its stunning location in New Hampshire,” says Tuff of Plymouth’s inclusion on the list. “We sought towns that not only have premier access to outdoor recreation and resources, but also forward momentum. New initiatives such as bike paths, outdoor centers, eco-friendly measures, and more all played a role in helping us determine the 50 best places to live and play for National Geographic Adventure readers.”
