America’s Oldest Man-Made Attraction Is Right Here In New Hampshire And It’s Amazing

If you live in New Hampshire, you’ve heard of the Mount Washington Auto Road – and there’s a good chance you’ve driven up it. If you haven’t, you’ve definitely seen plenty of “This Car Climbed Mount Washington” bumper stickers! What you may not know is that the auto road up New Hampshire’s tallest peak is also the oldest man-made attraction in the United States.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

To learn more about rates, hours, and vehicle restrictions visit the Mt. Washington Auto Road’s website. Of course, if your car isn’t up to the challenge, you can always take the Cog Railway instead. Either way, the journey to the summit of this magnificent mountain will be just as memorable as the views from the top.
