North Conway, NH – The Mt Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce is out to prove that there’s more to spring than melting snow and rain.  In fact, they’ve banished the term “mud season” and replaced it with a wide range of adventures that can only be found in spring time and only in the Mt Washington Valley.  What’s a favorite springtime pastime here?  Shopping, of course!  Why?  Not only is shopping a spring adventure in Mt Washington Valley, it’s also tax-free.  New Hampshire is one of only a few tax-free states left, and that means shoppers from throughout the world will find that what they see on the price tag is what they pay. 

Shopping in Mt Washington Valley is not only a bargain-hunters adventure at more than 100 tax-free New Hampshire outlets, it’s also a treasure trove of unique items from another hundred or so independently owned shops and specialty boutiques.  From made-in-New-Hampshire to hand-dipped, hand-drawn and hand-written, and hand-made, shoppers will enjoy the adventure of finding that perfect item for everyone from those seeking to expand their wardrobe to those hoping to fill a new home.
