Sun or Snow, North Conway is Overflowing with Activities
Although North Conway may not seem like a natural wonderland with its lines of outlet malls and extensive collection of chain restaurants, it is actually one of the most picturesque jumping off points for a well-balanced vacation.
Located along the fertile Saco River Valley, North Conway rentals boast beautiful views of the forest-covered mountains and the towering Mount Washington. However, if you want a new perspective of the area beyond your doorstep, hop aboard the Conway Scenic Railroad for a picture-perfect ride in the warm weather months or try a cruise on the Polar Express for a December adventure you’ll never forget.
Other excellent sightseeing opportunities can be find in the Victorian-style town and on the Mount Washington Cog Railway, but the real adventure lies within the White Mountain National Forest. While summer pursuits such as hiking, mountain biking, and fishing offer the most relaxation, climbing the face of Whitehorse Ledge is an unbeatable option for diehard thrill seekers.
As easy as it is to jam-pack your itinerary with the countless activities of the Mount Washington Valley, nothing beats the rush of a downhill adventure at the Cranmore Mountain Resort. Offering 40 exhilarating runs that can accommodate skiers and snowboarders of every ability, this winter sports mecca invites you to experience a side of North Conway that only appears when snow graces its terrain.
In addition to tackling the slopes, Cranmore also allows you to work on your moves at two terrain parks or rest your weary body at one of the resort restaurants and cafes. For families with inexperienced mountaineers, the laid-back attitude and the Artic Blast Tubing Park offer a great environment for learning and enjoying the oldest operating ski area in New England.
