History and Natural Beauty Make Madison a Can’t-Miss Destination
Although the nearby towns of Conway and North Conway certainly draw their fair share of the crowds, Madison is one charming option that should not be overlooked due to its ideal location near some of New Hampshire’s best natural features.
One of the highlights of any trip to Madison has to be a visit to the Madison Boulder Natural Area, home to the largest erratic in New England and one of the largest in the world. Although there aren’t any recreational pursuits available near this National Natural Landmark, you can still enjoy a relaxing picnic lunch during your visit to this huge granite rock.
However, along the rest of Madison’s terrain and in the surrounding area you will find plenty of opportunities for exciting adventures. Silver Lake offers a diverse collection of water sports that are just right for enjoying the picture-perfect scenery, while a journey into the village will take you to E.E. Cummings house, a National Historic Landmark.
The White Mountain National Forest is also teeming with activities such as hiking and mountain biking that could easily fill up your warm weather itinerary. But if you only have a few days to explore, be sure not to miss the beautiful and moderate hike up Mount Chocorua for its breathtaking views of Mount Washington and the Sandwich Range.
As with any other destination nestled in a spectacular mountain setting, you simply cannot pass up the amazing skiing opportunities that lie right outside Madison home rentals. The King Pine Ski Resort is the most convenient option in nearby East Madison, while those who want a larger ski area cannot go wrong at the Cranmore Mountain Resort in North Conway.
