    My husband and I decided to try Echo Lake after going up Cathedral Ledge since it was so close and such a hot day. Not for us. Just wanted a place to relax and maybe swim. It seemed to be all families...  more »

    We always spend two or three mornings by the lake when we visit the area. The beaches are clean and there are plenty of picnic tables to settle at. This year the water was really warm and full of tadp...  more »

    Great hike in the summer or winter. The winter it is very quiet and peaceful with a beautiful view. The summer you can find families with packed lunches enjoying the warm lake water.

    My family visited for the first time this past weekend. We did a little hike and then spent the afternoon at the lake. It was beautiful. Clean and peaceful. My two boys had a blast swimming and finding tadpoles. The only reason I didn't give it a fifth star is because they don't have food vendors. We visit from out of state and can't easily pack lunch. All in all, we enjoyed the park and will return again next time we are in NH.

    The climb was hard but the view was well worth it

    The scenery here is beautiful. Gorgeous views of White Horse Ledge and Cathedral Ledge. There are lifeguards on duty, so feel safe swimming in the lake. There are nice walking trails in the area. It is an easy 1 mile around the lake and there is a mid level trail that heads up to the top of Cathedral Ledge. Overall, this is a great area to spend some time with the family on vacation.

Where to stay in North Conway

North Conway can get quite busy, especially in summer and the peak foliage period during early fall, so you'll want to choose a place to stay that allows you to head into the surrounding area without driving through town. If you plan to visit attractions to the north, like the White Mountains, stay on the north side of town. For easier access to attractions like the Kancamagus Highway, stay on the south side. Whichever part of town you choose, you'll find a healthy selection of inns and bed and breakfasts in historical houses as well as locally owned hotels, full-service resorts, and vacation rentals.
