Jackson, New Hampshire: Leaf-Peeping and Skiing amid the Mountains in New England
Surrounded by the White Mountain National Forest on all sides, the sleepy town of Jackson is naturally positioned for peaceful solitude and postcard-worthy views. In fact, Yankee magazine named Jackson one of the best towns in New England for fall foliage. The meadows, lakes, and mountain peaks dotting the landscape also make it a haven for hikers and paddlers. Wintertime activities include downhill and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, dogsledding, and snowmobiling either at the inn or at designated recreation areas located within a 20-minute drive.
Nearby, sweeping mountain vistas and colonial architecture unfold along the 100-mile White Mountains Trail National Scenic Byway.
