From NYC to New Hampshire: The Perfect Road Trip

Here’s to taking the long way: from New York City to New Hampshire. 

If you live in New York, we recommend taking a road less traveled and visiting our larger Boston Outpost, nestled away in the woods of New Hampshire – the six-hour drive makes a meandering summer road trip. Here’s a preview of the scenic route, with a few stops along to the way.

Estimated Time: 6 hours
Miles: 289

Hartford, CT
For history lovers, stop by the capital of Connecticut. It’s home to attractions like the Mark Twain House and Museum, a beautiful 1827 mansion that includes the desk at which the author wrote his most well-known works.

Sherwood Island State Park, CT
Just an hour outside of Manhattan, check out Connecticut’s first state park, swim in the Long Island Sound, and relax on the sandy beaches.

Wadsworth Falls State Park, CT
Just over two hours outside of Manhattan, this quaint spot has hikes and waterfalls—perfect for taking a quick dip or enjoying a snack.

The Green Bean, Northampton MA
If you get hungry, coast into the historic town of Northampton and check out The Green Bean, featuring a healthy and delicious breakfast menu served all day.

Chesterfield Gorge, NH
Stretch your legs and treat your eyes to this scenic, peaceful 0.7-mile loop hike with serene waterfall views. Plus, it’s dog-friendly.

Epsom, NH
When you get to Epsom, you can kick up your feet, relax, and just do nothing. There’ll be a cozy cabin and a soft bed waiting for you to relax and recharge in a different neck of the woods. Book your trip to Boston before our summer is a distant memory.
