  • See North Conway from a different perspective. Great spot to eat lunch a nice summers day. You can drive virtually to the edge. Parking available then a short 200 foot walk to the ledge.  more »

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.
