The legendary drive in New England is the steep and breathtaking climb up the Mt. Washington Auto Road in New Hampshire. The road opened in August 1861 to stagecoaches, marking summer 2021 as the 160th year travelers have driven up 4,618 feet from the base, reaching more than a mile into the sky, the highest point in the Northeast at an altitude of 6,288 feet.
The Mt. Washington Auto Road is America’s oldest man-made attraction. In a summer that promises to be the ultimate season of road trips, it’s the most famous mountain drive east of the Rockies. The views to the Atlantic Ocean and into Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, New York and even Canada are amazing. Drivers earn the right to place the legendary “This Car Climbed Mt. Washington” bumper sticker on their car after the trip.
The Glen House, the award-winning hotel in the heart of New Hampshire’s White Mountains, sits at the base of the Mt. Washington Auto Road, within the White Mountain National Forest, and is the perfect base camp for any drive. The hotel is celebrating this all-American road trip with The Auto Road Weekender package.
