A one-of-a-kind sightseeing experience!

A trip on Mt. Washington Auto Road is a one-of-a-kind experience offering ever-changing weather extremes, panoramic views and the opportunity to pass through four distinct climate zones as you climb to the highest peak in the Northeast. Keep those cameras handy because once you arrive to the summit, you’ll be surrounded by the 750,000-acre White Mountain National Forest, where views on a clear day may extend 130 miles to Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, Maine, Quebec, and even the Atlantic Ocean! Also on the summit, you’re free to explore the many historic buildings. The Sherman Adams Visitor Center offers a cafeteria, restrooms and gift shops, while your paid toll includes admission to Mount Washington Observatory’s interactive “Extreme Mt. Washington Museum”.

Lovely scenery, a gourmet meal and exemplary service: a winning mix on elegant dinner train

Ever-changing scenery and seasonally-changing meals make for a winning combination on board the popular Cafe Lafayette Dinner Train. The train’s lovingly restored vintage rail cars rumble through the Pemigewasset River Valley, through lush woodland, over three quintessentially New England trestle bridges, through a “jack-o-lantern” golf course and Christmas tree farm, on a two-hour, 20-mile round trip from the North Woodstock station. You’ll especially enjoy the scenery because of the delightful five-course gourmet meal you’re dining on as the train moves along. Creative offerings from top culinary teams are cooked to order aboard the train and served in style, as period music plays gently in the background. It’s a memorable way to experience this particularly scenic mountain region.
