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 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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.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.
