Along with laidback shopping and delicious dining in its quaint downtown, the village is a launchpad for an array of year-round outdoor adventures. Whether you're spending a blissful summer swimming and sunbathing at Echo Lake State Park, or plan to ride out the winter months skiing and snow-tubing at the Cranmore Mountain Resort, North Conway vacation rentals are the perfect choice for enjoying a little downtime with family, friends or both.

Things to do

Unique experiences in North Conway

A fabulous way to soak up New Hampshire's stunning scenery is to hop aboard a vintage train for an old-fashioned railroading experience. Valley trains depart from North Conway's Victorian station, heading either to Conway or Bartlett, while the Notch train runs along a former stretch of the Maine Central Railroad to Crawford, taking in stunning views of Frankenstein Trestle and Crawford Notch along the way. In the village, the Weather Discovery Center amazes travelers with a look at the arctic-like conditions that have led the summit of Mount Washington to become known as the home of the world's worst weather.

Activities

Family adventures in North Conway

With more than 700,000 acres of protected national forest offering an idyllic backdrop to North Conway, outdoor time is firmly on the agenda.
