Response from Gail:
Lorraine, I'm so glad you enjoyed your trip to the White Mountains. I love sharing them with others. Yes, there are tons of activities - the hiking can't be beat, everything from high summits to rambles along streams with cascades, water falls, and big boulders to claim king of the mountain on! Kids love it, I find it great exhilarating exercise! The North Conway area has the highest peaks in all of New England, glad you enjoyed! I hope you got some tax-free shopping in to, with North Conway's extensive outlet shopping. Hope you found the ways around the traffic, there are lots of ways around!
