From Candlelit to casual dining: Every great trip includes memorable meals.  Whether it’s the perfect breakfast, afternoon picnic or romantic dinner, there are so many ways to celebrate love over food in the Valley.  Farm-to-table focused, international cuisine, bars and pubs, BBQ or locally made ice cream, Mt Washington Valley’s eateries run the gambit from fine to frivolous.  In addition, there are plenty of specially themed dining events and nightly special offers from oyster orgies to two-fers and $10 burger and beer nights.  Honeymooners can even get in on locals’ night specials because everyone’s a local in Mt Washington Valley.  And for those who love their spirits, there are local distilleries, and breweries to tour and taste from too. You can even commemorate your honeymoon with a custom-labeled wine at the White Mountain Winery. And if you want to be sure you’re dining at a locally-owned restaurant that contributes a portion of its earnings to support local non-profits, look for the yellow flag hanging in front of the 27-or-so Valley Originals restaurants.

From hard core to soft adventure: Located in the heart of New Hampshire’s White Mountains, surrounded by the 700,000 White Mountain National Forest and in the shadow of Mount Washington – the tallest peak in the Northeast, Mt Washington Valley takes adventure to new heights.  It’s the rock climbing and ice climbing capital of the Northeast for those who love the thrill of the summit or want to try it for the first time.  There are 13 ski resorts and XC Centers offering everything from steeps and deeps to gentle terrain – and many shifting to attractions in the summertime.  And there are 11 golf courses within 30-40 minutes of North Conway, some much closer.  The hiking, biking, swimming adventures are seemingly endless too.  And for those seeking something  less strenuous, the area’s attractions offer up everything from ziplines and mountain coasters to van and moose tours.  Perhaps the chance to simply visit Jackson’s Kissing Bridge – made famous for the honeymooners who’d steal a kiss beneath the cover of the roof – would be the highlight of a mini-moon. There’s something for every taste.
