Gorham Things to Do

    Drive to top of Mt. Washington

    by CJD68 Written Apr 4, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The highest point in New Hampshire is accessible by road. It is quite cold and windy at the top. Make sure you have a coat and hat, even in the middle of summer.

    Boott Spur Grille: Very Good Food

    by Basaic Written Nov 18, 2014

    $15 as of July 2014. The Boott Spur Grille offers Texas-style steaks and Mexican food. The place is family run with a casual atmosphere. I liked this place pretty well but place it below J's Corner Restaurant & Lounge. Worth a try if you are looking for Mexican food.

    J's Corner Restaurant & Lounge: Great Place to Eat and Drink

    by Basaic Written Nov 18, 2014

    $15 in July 2014. J's has a varied menu that includes steak, seafood, and chicken along with lighter fare like soups and salads. The atmosphere is pretty casual and family friendly, although they do have a full bar attached. The food was good enough that I ate here twice and the service was fine. Hours are 11 AM to 8 PM Sunday through Wednesday and 11 AM to 9 PM Thursday through Saturday.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite was the Fisherman's Stew (Haddock, Shrimp, Scallops, and Mussels in a tomato broth) but the Chili with Cheese was good too.

  • Yokohama Restaurant: A local favorite

    by archtrgeek Written Aug 2, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Always packed with locals it can sometimes be tough to get a table despite their expanded dining areas. The whole restaurant is decked out in Japanese decor among the standard restaurant tables, chairs, and booths. The smaller lunch menu includes some lunch only entrees but several budget friendly personal options. While the dinner menu is several pages long, it provides numerous options for family style eating or individual dishes.

    Since I don't eat seafood I couldn't tell you if they have sushi or not but I know there are numerous seafood options on the menu.

    Favorite Dish: Kushi - breaded chicken and vegetables fried and served on a pair of skewers.
    DoorKnobs - bread mushrooms stuffed with chicken, a great appetizer.
    Fried mushrooms & broccoli - deep fried breaded mushrooms and tempura style broccoli both in large appetizer portions.
    Osoba soup - broth soup with pork, peapods, noodles, and crunchy fried tempura batter; available in several sizes as a side or even a main course.
    Yaki Soba - soba noodles with chicken and oriental vegetables; my husbands favorite, he always stops in to get an order when we are in town - but you have to get there early because it is only on the lunch menu.

Gorham Warnings and Dangers

  • Winter & Spring Hiking/Mountain sports

    by archtrgeek Written Aug 2, 2007

    The white mountains can be very dangerous during the winter and until all the snow is gone the danger remains.
    If you choose to ski, snowboard, or hike in the white mountains you should always make sure that someone knows where you are going and when you will return. Also make sure to ALWAYS CHECK THE FORECAST before heading out. Remember though that weather at the top of the mountain is not the same as the weather in the valley. In New England and even more so in the mountains the weather can change drastically in an instant. So long as there is snow on the ground avalanches of snow, craters, hidden pockets, and many more dangers can be out there. As late as July you can find snow in the pockets and ravines of the mountains, these dangers are even more prominant as the snow melts both on the ground side and the air side - tread carefully and when in doubt walk around the snow.

    Nearby search and rescue teams in Gorham put their lives in jeopardy to save winter enthusiasts from these dangers every year. Also FYI - cell phones and radios do not get reception in all places in the mountains and even a clear path to a satallite usually can't be found when you have fallen inside a massage snow pile.
