The Mt. Washington Auto Road Is 7.6 Miles Of White Knuckle Driving In New Hampshire That’s Not For The Faint Of Heart
There are plenty of drives you can take in the Granite State that will lead you to incredible views and extra-special destinations. The last few months of social-distancing have allowed us to hop in the car and experience things we normally would not have prioritized. And we’re pretty thankful for that! But this drive might be the granddaddy of them all! While not particularly long, the route is twisty and turn-y, offering incredible views and a few moments of chills.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

You don’t need a reservation, but admission to the road is $35 for one car and drive and $10 for each additional person in the car. Right now the observatory museum is not open and rest rooms are portable toilets outside.
Michelle has lived in many places, but counts Maine as one of the best. In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
