White Mountain Hotel and Resort - What better way to kick off your mountainside getaway than with a full day at the highly popular White Mountain Hotel and Resort? This upscale hotel sits adjacent to the Echo Lake State Forest, just 6.5 miles away from the city of Conway. Many people often refer to this hotel as a quintessential New England getaway with its traditional and colonial-inspired decor paired with its wonderfully modern amenities and luxuries. The entire hotel holds 80 rooms, most of them with breathtaking views of the magnificent surrounding cliffs and gorgeous mountains of New Hampshire. Take in a hot stone, Swedish, or sports massage, a body scrub or wrap, or maybe just settle for some rejuvenating aromatherapy. The hotel provides free wifi, fitness rooms, saunas, hiking and biking trails, and a golf course! You can curl up by the fireplace with a good book, take a ride on the Canmore or Wildcat ski areas if the season is right, or perhaps just take a warm dip outside in the heated outdoor pool!
White Mountain National Forest -Welcome to the White Mountain National Forest, a Northeaster must-see that provides more than 800,000 acres of preserved forest with mountain views and historic sites galore. The reforested mountains and hillsides are dotted with history, the park itself established in 1918 after a long battle with unregulated logging practices and private timber companies. Once here you will have many opportunities for adventure, so take a challenging or adventurous trail, or maybe renew yourself with a wooded climb through the trees. You can hike, bike, climb, camp, fish, hunt, view nature, take part in any water or winter sports, and even several outdoor learning opportunities. You may also want to take advantage of the Kancamagus Scenic Byway for a drive, or perhaps the historic Russell-Colbath House or Brickett Place. This is one gorgeous, fun, and educational stop that you and your entire group are all going to love!
The Lobster Trap - If you’ve worked up an appetite you’re in for a treat with your next stop, the Lobster Trap. First established in 1958, this North Conway mainstay is renowned for the finest fresh Maine lobster, a delicious tradition of excellence started by founder Henry Thompson over 57 years ago. Open daily for lunch and dinner, the Lobster Trap offers traditional New England boiled or baked lobster, the baked stuffed with crab meat stuffing, each weighing between one to three pounds on average. Enjoy their seafood specialties, fresh-cut sirloin steaks, or italian specialties, a culmination of over 50 years of cuccio chef experience. Guests tend to leave raving about the fish and chips, fried haddock, lobster pie, and lobster del diablo, so be sure to give them a try, you won’t regret it!
Colonial Theater - The historic Colonial Theater in Bethlehem will be an absolutely excellent last stop of the day, the perfect day to unwind and still be immersed in local culture, history, and entertainment! This movie theater was built in 1915, making it one of the oldest continuously operated movie theaters in the country! Colonial Theater was built by Florida architect Francis Kennard, in the at-time famously popular art deco style. It was established in the era of grand hotels within a premier resort spot, making it a highly traversed theater that became a test market for new films. Here your group can see nationally acclaimed artists in an intimate setting, or also take part in any community events or live performances happening while there. Colonial just celebrated its big anniversary this year, providing 100 years of blockbuster Hollywood hits and independent award-winners day after day!

Your group may choose to take a scenic train tour, unwind with a spa day, shop till they drop, learn a bit at a local museum, blow off some steam with adventurous recreation, or set sail on a sightseeing cruise! The options are almost endless here, making it easy to see why Mount Washington Valley was named best Easter Destination Village, one of National Geographic's top 25 ski destinations in the world, and even one of the most affordable skiing vacations in the U.S.!
