If you think New England is all about history, think again. New Hampshire’s White Mountains offer groups nature on a lavish scale—from iconic Mt. Washington (at 6,288 feet, the Northeast’s highest peak) to the White Mountain National Forest (800,000 acres offering activities ranging from hiking and golfing to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing).
The White Mountains are also home to two “firsts”: the Mt. Washington Auto Road, the nation’s first man-made attraction, and NTA-member Mount Washington Cog Railway, the world’s first mountain-climbing cog railway train.
All this and one of the region’s most dazzling displays of seasonal colors make New Hampshire both a scenic and serene choice for tour operators.
