Gorgeous area in New Hampshire, full of scenic stops, outdoor activities, breathtaking views and adventure activities from ski to zip-lines. We mainly did white mountain trail which is 100 mile scenic loop starting in the town of North Woodstock and finishing in Lincoln. There are numerous overlooks, hiking options and side trip options along the trail. Stop at the Visitor... More

We've been to the White Mountains of New Hampshire many times, each time I find yet another Awe moment that I some how missed the last time we were there. We decided to go up mid foliage season, (second, third week in October, foliage was a little later this year). It's a great time to enjoy the peaceful surroundings before... More

This is a gorgeous area of the US ! The mountains are simply beautiful. We drove up Mt Washington and it was spectacular. We saw a large moose in the wild and he let us observe him for about a half an hour. Don't miss the many stunning waterfalls and gorges in the area . We did a lot of... More

The mountains were really beautiful in their Autumn red colours. And the aerial cable car by the Old Man of the Mountains was well worth a visit, taking you a further few thousand feet to a summit. The cable operators were also quite amusing during the journey upwards, and the views from the top were spectacular. Well worth a visit.... More

The campground is clean, quiet, close to a lot of attractions, and has a really great price. However don't come here if you're young and plan on staying up any later than 10pm. A recent stay the campground next to me was harrassed endlessly by the site host and the police even searched their camp. Not once was this group... More

Walk, hike, climb, drive, bike, and ski-- The White's are a place to explore across a life-time. A short drive from Boston, a short flight from anywhere in the US and Canada, this area will delight young and old alike. Some folks climb all 46 mountains over 4,000 feet in New Hampshire in one summer, some do it over the... More

We found this spot on our way back from North Conway heading back to Bretton Woods. Beautiful! Great place to stop and enjoy a picnic lunch with gorgeous mountain views. You can grab a sandwich at Subway across the street and later a few scoops of Bobby Sue's Homemade Ice Cream! Yum! I've attached some photos and a map for... More

So so green around. And beautiful for sure! Summers are great there! But this place can be visited anytime, I believe. Lakes, valleys, mountains and scenery roads. Would recommend it for a nature lover, but it's perfect for everyone. If I had a chance to come back here again, I would definitely do it!
