Hiking, climbing, cycling and skiing are enjoyed both by energetic locals and by the many visitors who drive up from Boston
and New York
. The major destinations are Lake Winnipesaukee in Belknap County
, and Conway
in the mountains further north. Mount Washington is in Coos County
. The lakes, islands and snowcapped peaks themselves are spectacular. And some say that the area around Cheshire County
and Keene, NH
is the "Currier and Ives" America has come to love.
