From the Mt. Washington Regional Airport you can explore New Hampshire's White Mountains, New England's favorite year round vacation destination. Winding country roads take you past fabulous scenery, through covered bridges and past village greens edged by white clapboard homes and high-steepled churches.
Take a hike through the 780,000 acre White Mountain National Forest, picnic by a waterfall, swim in a crystal clear mountain stream, head out on a mountain bike or spend the day at one of many quality family attractions. Plus there's tax-free shopping, a host of memorable lodgings and restaurants offering warm hospitality.
Mt Washington Regional Airport's airfield is sited in the middle of an old polo field on land that was donated to the town of Whitefield in 1947 by Frank Dodge, an operator of one of the last of the Grand Hotels. Mr. Dodge recognized that as Americans became more mobile their vacation patterns would change from extended stays at destination resorts to shorter visits to more locations.
While vacation styles and patterns have changed over the 125 years that visitors have been coming to New Hampshire's North Country, the lure of the White Mountains continues to grow. More people visit the White Mountains each year than Yosemite and Yellowstone National Parks.
