Week of Rest and Relaxation


If you want to rest, April is a good time to come because it is the beginning of their "mud season", when the skiing is over and many places are closed for the season until May. We drove to North Conway to do some outlet shopping. That was great--the stores had many clearance sales and very few shoppers.

Quick Tips:

Conveniently located in a shopping plaza with a bank, market, and the local movie cinema.
