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.
Get in touch with nature at Kancamagus Highway and Cathedral Ledge. When in North Conway, make a side trip to see Mt Washington Auto Rd in Gorham, approximately 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Diana's Baths, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Tamworth Distilling, identify plant and animal life at Dahl Wildlife Sanctuary, and look and learn at Mount Washington Observatory Weather Discovery Center.
