Kancamagus Highway is the scenic eastern strip of the New Hampshire Route 112 and is popular for long drives. This road strip stretches through the White Mountain National Forest for 32 miles (51 kilometers), along the banks of the river Swift. The path is flanked by tall coniferous trees with the river flowing softly on one side and bluish mountains yonder. In spring, the trees wear a fresh look, but during autumn the landscape breaks into myriad shades of yellow, orange, red and brown, bathing the entire region in breathtaking natural beauty. The river bed contains plenty of rocks and pure white sand and one can see numerous waterfalls and bridges while driving through this path. September to November is the best time to hike, cycle or bike through the road.
This local history museum is a fitting homage to the Remicks - two country doctors who dedicated their lives to the welfare of the community of Tamworth. The museum occupies a beautifully preserved historic farm that has been in operation for over 250 years. The museum, farm and its many interactive exhibits offer a glimpse into the agricultural past and rural lifestyle of the region, as well as the lives of country doctors. A tour of the doctor's house is especially enlightening, while a visit to the farm animals is sure to delight younger museum-goers. Antique furnishings, scenic surrounds, 19th-century murals and a jam-packed events schedule, are just a few of the delights that await at the Remick Country Doctor Museum and Farm.
