From high peaks to diverse playgrounds, the Granite State beckons in the summer for all ages and interests.
Luckily for New Englanders, there are plenty of destinations to discover throughout the region within a day’s drive.
Mount Washington Auto Road
The Mount Washington Auto Road, which opened in 1861, is North America’s first man-made attraction and can be credited to putting North Conway and the Mount Washington Valley on the map as a tourist destination.
While it was originally a bridal path to the summit, visitors today embark on self-guided driving tours, stopping at viewpoints and listening to fun facts about the changing and fragile ecosystems along the way.
