North Conway

— 2 nights
North Conway combines colonial New England architecture with outlet shops selling goods from some of the world's most recognizable brands, all set amid the scenery of the White Mountains.
Step out of North Conway with an excursion to Mt. Washington Auto Road in Gorham--about 38 minutes away. There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Diana's Baths, look and learn at Mount Washington Observatory Weather Discovery Center, snap pictures at Honeymoon Bridge, and take some stellar pictures from Cathedral Ledge.

The vast White Mountains cover not only a quarter of New Hampshire, but also a good portion of western Maine. A popular holiday destination for hiking and camping throughout the year, this mountain range includes some of the most rugged terrain in New England. Most of the area is public land, with a number of state parks and a sprawling national forest. The range includes 48 peaks over 1,200 m (4,000 ft) tall, popularly known as the "four-thousand footers." Mount Washington stands out among these, at 1,917 m (6,288 ft), as the highest peak in the northeastern section of the United States. To explore the mountains while on vacation, you can park at the national forest's trailheads, but be sure to purchase a parking permit at any of the area's visitor centers first.
