North Conway, NH - Come fall, Mt Washington Valley shows its true colors.  Spanning a number of eco-systems from the summit of Mount Washington, the tallest peak in the Northeast, to the Southern Valleys, fall colors come early in the high country and extend later into October in the Southern reaches of the Valley.  Any time after mid-September is a great time to visit the Valley for leaf peeping and plenty of fall adventure.  Days are warm, nights are cool and the shopping is always tax-free.

Here are a few sample packages, all well under $300 per couple, offered from Mt Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce members.  For a complete list of vacation specials offered throughout the Mt Washington Valley, go to and click on VACATION SPECIALS.
