Few People Know You Can Spend The Night At This Famous New Hampshire Observatory
There are few places more iconic to New Hampshire than Mount Washington. Known for having some of the most volatile weather in the world, the stories told by scientists from up here are riveting and incredible. With the Auto Road, it’s fairly easy to spend a few hours exploring the summit and enjoying the views. But, in the winter the road shuts down which means waiting a few months for the spring thaw. The only exception? This incredible opportunity to stay overnight in the observatory!
