This is a great place with a romantic setting.  Jackson Falls is located just off Carter Notch Road and is a series of small water falls and swirling pools that stretches over 200 feet.  Listen to the rushing water and relax.  This is a great place for a picnic or to start the day with breakfast to go.

Explore a relic of yesterday at the Honeymoon Coved Bridge located just off Route #16 in Jackson.  This vintage covered bridge is a popular spot for photographers, admirers and historians.  The bridge, constructed in 1876, still stands today in its splendid glory as it is a fully functioning bridge spanning the Ellis River.  Walk along the river and bridge and see beautiful view of the river below or get a close-up view of this piece of history as it is an icon of old New England.

Glen Ellis Falls

Glen Ellis Falls is one of the most popular waterfalls in New Hampshire and the White Mountains.  It’s a 64 foot plunge drop water fall with great spots to view both the top of the waterfall as well as the base.  Located just off Route #16 in Pinkham Notch, it’s a short walk down a well maintained trail with spectacular views of the Ellis River before it makes a sudden drop into a large pool below.  There are several viewing spots at the upper parts of the falls and then a forest staircase to the base of the falls.  At the base, you will see the cascading water as it plunges into the pool below.  During high water, you can feel the cool spray from the smashing waters as the gush over the drop.

Mount Washington Auto Road

Drive to the summit of Mount Washington with a self-guided narrative guide and experience the most epic views of the Mount Washington Valley.  Drive this 7.6 mile accent to the unique summit and explore the top of the mountain with views extending into Maine, Canada and Vermont. 

Conway Scenic Trail Ride

Skip down to North Conway from Jackson and jump on the Conway Scenic Train.  During the summer and fall, the train has daily train rides to Crawford Notch State Park and past the Mount Washington Hotel.  Experience a unique view of the White Mountain National Park, Crawford Notch State Park and the majestic mountains in between on this epic train ride.

Square Ledge Hiking Trail

Head up to the Pinkham Notch Visitor Center a few miles from Jackson and take a short hike to Square Ledge.  The trail is a 1.1 trek to Square Ledge with glorious views of Mount Washington and the valley below.  The trail is mostly easily with a slight climb towards the end.  This is a romantic spot to enjoy a cup of coffee or lunch while you take in the expansive views.  The best views are between dawn and 2pm as the eastern light is shining on Mountain Washington.

Emerald Pool

Located just off Route #16 between Pinkham Notch Visitor Center and the Mount Washington Auto Road, Emerald Pool is a great spot for a romantic excursion.  This area is less traveled but just off the road and has a large pool and small water fall.  This is a great place for a picnic and just to sit and listen to the rushing waters.

Kancamagus Highway

The Kancamagus Highway is the most popular scenic drive in New Hampshire and only a few miles from Jackson.  This 34 ½ mile drive makes its way through the pristine forest of the White Mountains with scenic views of the Swift River, Rocky Gorge Scenic Area, Sabadday Falls and plenty of mountain top vistas.  Plan on 1-2 hours to explore this area either simply driving this scenic byway or stopping along the way and exploring the sites.

ATV Riding

From Jackson, head north to Gorham where you can rent an ATV for a few hours or the whole day.  From Gorham, there are over 1000 miles through the forest of Northern New Hampshire with view of the White Mountains, local wildlife, water falls and forest views.  Whether for a few hours or a complete day, ATV riding is a unique and exhilarating adventure for a romantic couple.

Moose Tour Safari

Looking for a unique romantic adventure?  A moose tour safari is a great way to share this experience and continues to thrill people young and old.  From Jackson, head north to Gorham to catch the Gorham Moose Tours and set out to find the illusive New Hampshire Moose.  See baby moose (calves) mom (cow) and dad (bull) with a two hour moose tour safari.

Nestlenook Sleigh Rides (Winter Only)

Experience an old fashioned sleigh ride at Nestlenook Farms located in Jackson New Hampshire.  Take a trip around Jackson and the village with a team of Belgian giants as they pull the sleigh.  This is an adventure which is immensely popular and typically sells out quickly.
