It often times goes unknown: the beauty right in our backyard. Not only is the Granite State known for its beautiful White Mountains, it’s also known for having some of the world’s most amazing fall foliage, dozens of pristine watering holes, world-class skiing and hiking, amazing ocean views and so much more. There is so much to see and do no matter what time of the year it is, how much time you have or how big your budget is.


Some may argue that fall is, undoubtedly, the most beautiful season in New England. Conway, New Hampshire has been ranked one of the top locations for leaf-peeping in all of New England. While peak season differs slightly each year, records show that October is most commonly the most colorful month. Depending on where you live, foliage expeditions can take a few hours or a few days, depending on how much time you want to take. Downtown Conway, New Hampshire boasts great shopping, dining and accommodations for everyone from families to honey-mooners.


Whether you love the snow or you hate it, it’s inevitable during New England’s winter months. Make the most of it by taking a trip up to one of New Hampshire’s world renowned ski resorts for skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, ice castles and much more.


As temperatures start to rise and the snow starts to melt, spring can be the ideal time to dust off those hiking boots and head north. Check out All Trails for a list of New Hampshire’s best hiking trails for all levels.


Almost anything is possible during New Hampshire summers. Camping, hiking, beaches, lakes, concerts, markets, amusement parks – you name it, New Hampshire probably offers it.
