A Trip to North Conway

During February vacation, the wife, kid, and I traveled to spend the night in North Conway, New Hampshire. This is a place we tend to visit a couple times every year and I always take my camera along for the journey. Just south of ol’ Santa’s Village and Storyland, it is a great place to check out (if you have any energy left after chasing children around a theme park). Basically everything is right on Route 302 or not far from it, so it is convenient to just start at one end of town and work your way up!

Here are a few things to check out…

  • Zeb’s General Store: Candy, gifts, home goods, and just a cool old general store esthetic, https://www.zebs.com

  • Settlers Green Outlets: A maze of outlets just south of the older village part of town. The wife suggests you check out Vera Bradley and I say go to Stonewall Kitchen, both are factory outlets with great deals. Don’t miss the murals and sculptures as you wanter around. https://www.settlersgreen.com

  • Conway Scenic Railroad: Not open this time of year, but a cool old rail station to take a look at. When it is open, it is a fun little excursion and considerably cheaper than some other scenic railways. https://www.conwayscenic.com

  • The Christmas Loft: A year-round Christmas shop with a little village setup in the middle of an enormous selection of ornaments, ceramic villages, and decorations. You need to check this place out with your kids! https://christmasloft.com

You can easily spend a full day wandering about the Route 302 strip, so consider spending the night. We stayed at the Hampton Inn (which has free breakfast and indoor water slides!) and had a good experience. Be sure to take the beautiful drive through the New Hampshire mountains and check out North Conway.
