Visitor Information


At the gateway to the White Mountains, you’ll find Plymouth State, a classic New England campus nestled amidst sprawling natural beauty. Just blocks away from campus, you’ll find yourself in the center of picturesque Plymouth, NH, named one of America’s Top 10 Small Towns as well as one of National Geographic Adventure Magazine’s 50 next great adventure towns.

Because we’re surrounded by some of the nation’s most beautiful and accessible natural landscapes, our students have world-class recreation opportunities year-round. And visits by family and friends can easily turn into a vacation.

The White Mountains offer opportunities to hike, ski, rock and ice climb. And the Baker River Valley is a canoeing and kayaking enthusiast’s dream with scenic sections of river and quiet ponds.

In true college town fashion, Plymouth has a variety of shops, great restaurants, lodging and attractions. For the most recent list of area lodging, dining, and activity options, contact the Central NH Chamber of Commerce.
