Mt. Washington may not be the highest peak in the nation but the significance it holds geographically and meteorologically make it a draw for people interested in such things. But that said, Mount Washington is great place for everyone to visit. The views are fantastic, the visitor center and museum have some really interesting weather related exhibits and there are plenty of trails to hike on, both at the summit and for those who wish to make the climb. If nothing else, it is a great photo op. Bring a jacket, even if it is 90 plus degrees at the bottom. The summit is sparse, wide open and the weather is changing by the minute as well as the wind, which can get rather gusty. Do it! You won't regret going.
