Holiday’s got you down in the dumps. Are you stressed out? The perfect cure is a holiday getaway where you can relax and be pampered. The Boston Globe is reporting on the perfect spot. Head up to Mount Washington Valley and drink in the majestic splendor of the scenery. Sit back in a comfy chair, put your phone and your laptop away and just be in the moment. If you are traveling from Boston, go north on Interstate 93 to Exit 32 for Lincoln and go east on the Kancamagus Highway past Loon Mountain. There begins a 36-mile length of winding road with breathtaking scenery. There are plenty of stops to make to head out to trials along the way to stretch your legs.

What is more magical than a train ride during the holiday? Try the Conway Scenic Railway in North Conway. Boston Globe quotes Chief Engineer Mike Lacey, “You see the mountains, you see the farms, you’re seeing classic New England country. You’re looking at New England the way it would have looked 50 years ago. The world’s going by, and you’re not having to do anything about it.”

Looking for a great place to stay? Try the Snowvillage Inn at Eaton Center, NH. A small living room with a large fireplace will welcome you in and invite you to unplug yourself from the day to day stresses of life. Play a game of chess, gaze out the window as the sunset turns the blue mountains to gold. It's all about the atmosphere. Take time to destress this holiday and start the New Year off right. Welcome, 2020!
