The Gorham Area
Welcomes You
to New Hampshire!


Spend your vacation in the Gorham NH area, and you will find great value for your dollar and a friendly helpful atmosphere. Still uncrowded and unspoiled by development, the area offers the best of both worlds. Here, the peaceful mountains surround you and you can still find all the conveniences and amenities you need at a reasonable price.

Step into another world north of the “notch” where you’ll enjoy nearby family attractions, outdoor facilities, museums, plays and concerts. Here you can relax, unwind ... and forget the fast paced world you left behind... stay longer, drive less!

Surrounded by the spectacular White Mountains, Gorham is located on the north end of the Presidential Range. The center of this range is dominated by the highest mountain in the northeastern U.S., Mount Washington, and is only a scenic 10 minute drive south from town. Wherever you go, there are beautiful vistas at every turn.

You can connect with snowmobile corridors right outside your door, or arrange a shuttle to your favorite hiking trail. A 5 minute drive gets you to the USFS Visitor Center, and 5 minutes more takes you to the Appalachain Mountain Club Visitor Center, Wildcat Mountain or Great Glen Trails!

Mt. Washington
~Mount Washington~ At 6,288' above sea level, Mt. Washington is the highest peak in the northeastern U.S. It's claim to fame is the world's highest surface wind and velocity ever recorded, a speed of 231 mph in 1934. Reaching well above the treeline, views are spectacular.
Every year, people drive or ride to the top, race by foot and bicycle, and hike or climb by various trails. You can take the Mt. Washington Auto Road or ride the Cog Railway from Bretton Woods.
