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 Wright Museum of WWII in Wolfeboro--about 1 hour away. There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Diana's Baths, pause for some serene contemplation at The Little White Church, get in on the family fun at Story Land, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Rocky Gorge.
