On the edge of the White Mountain National Forest and at the end of Mount Washington Valley, North Conway is the sports capital of the White Mountains.



North Conway, along the eastern edge of New Hampshire's White Mountains (map), is the center of outdoor activities in this region, including hiking, camping, canoeing, kayaking, skiing and snowboarding.

The most prominent landmark in North Conway is the old railroad station on Norcross Circle, refurbished to host the Conway Scenic Railroad. You'll see it on the west side of the White Mountain Highway (NH Route 16/US 302; map), the town's main north-south street, just across Schouler Park.

You can walk to almost everything in the town center by parking somewhere near Schouler Park and antique railroad station.

The Mount Cranmore ski area is on the northeastern outskirts of the town less than mile (1.5 km) from the railroad station. Other ski areas are nearby. More...

North Conway is legally just a locale in the larger incorporated town of Conway, near the eastern end of the Kancamagus Highway. The legal center of the municipality is Center Conway or Conway Village, 6.4 miles (10 km) southeast of North Conway along US Route 302/NH Route 16. Along this route are numerous hotels, motels, restaurants, shops and services that you may want. You'll need a car for these.

To the north of North Conway, Intervale is a pleasant suburb with several fine inns and good motels. Glen is a busy crossroads village. The village of Jackson is the most picturesque, and Bartlett more rural.
