Clark’s Trading Post is another New Hampshire attraction with a long history. When it opened in the 1920s, it featured trained dogs as part of the entertainment. Today the performing animals are North American Black Bears. You might see the bears play “Bears-ketball” by dunking a ball through a hoop or weigh themselves after a milk and honey treat. Bear demonstrations begin when the park opens in spring, but the full shows don’t usually begin until July 1. Once begun, the bear shows continue throughout the season. Take time to enjoy the relaxing ride along the Pemigewasset River on the White Mountain Central Railway. The more active members of your group might want to try the bumper boats. And if you like to step back in time, be sure to see the mysterious Tuttle House, where pool balls run uphill, Avery’s Garage and the 1884 Fire Station. Get your picture taken at Kilburn’s Photo Parlor and sample ice cream at the nearby old-fashioned ice cream store.
