Bretton Woods is an area within the town of Carroll, New Hampshire, United States, whose principal points of interest are three leisure and recreation facilities. Venture out of the city with trips to Chutters (in Littleton), Kancamagus Highway (in North Conway) and Flume Gorge (in Franconia). There's still lots to do: whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, take in the dramatic natural features at The Basin at Franconia Notch State Park, hike along Stowe Recreation Path, and tee off at Omni Mount Washington Resort Bretton Woods Golf Course.

To plan Bretton Woods vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Lake George

Lake George ©
A playground for America’s wealthy families, Lake George was nicknamed "Queen of the American Lakes." While these families often stayed in private country houses, a tourism industry built up around them in the early 20th century facilitated by two YMCAs.
When in Lake George, make a side trip to see Square Eddy Expeditions in North Creek, approximately 36 minutes away. The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George, do a tasting at Adirondack Winery, sample the fine beverages at Lake George Distilling Company, and putt your heart out at Pirate's Cove.

Plan my day in Lake George using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
