    the key to the highway is still a car in the USA

    Though you should do as much walking as possible in the White Mountains to see the truely spectacular parts of the park, a car comes in handy to not only get there but to get from one point to the next. The roads are a dream to drive on too, with great views and in the time of fall foliage, you'll be glad you can stop whenever you like to take that picture you always dreamed of taking.

    Vermont Transit has a route between Boston's South Station and Nashua, NH:
    http://www.vermonttransit.com/table62.html
    The Nashua terminal is at 30 Elm Street. Phone: 603-889-2121

    Concord Trailways has routes between Boston and Manchester, NH and also Boston-Concord, NH.

    Good luck finding public transport locally, in NH. It's very limited inside the state.

    Manchester Airport

    by dracko Written Jan 6, 2003

    If you're flying in, consider flying into Manchester. It's fairly central to most of New Hampshire and there are some real nice airfares to be found if you're flying into there. Not to mention the fact that you'll avoid the hassle of dealing with Boston's Logan and associated traffic and parking problems.

    Fly into Manchester Airport

    by Goner Written Nov 6, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I found flying into Manchester airport to reach New England on Northwest airlines was the least expensive and the Manchester airport is modern and convenient. Flying from Los Angeles, California there was a change of planes in Detroit, with just an hour layover.

    Manchester airport is located adjacent to Interstates 93 & 293, Route 101 and the F.E. Everett Turnpike. The Airport is just twenty minutes from the Massachusetts border and less than an hour's drive from the region's most popular ski areas, scenic seacoast beaches and peaceful lakefront resorts -- even Boston.

    Travel Routes

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To go to northern NH, take Rt 93 if you just want to get there. Take Rt. 3 if you have the time and want to meander & shop. To travel east & west in southern NH, take Rt 93 to Rt 101.
    .
    Nice drives on Western NH backroads:
    Route 13 from Milford to New Boston & beyond.
    Route 31 from New Ipswich to Wilton & beyond.
    Route 202 from Rindge to Peterborough & beyond.
    Route 124 from Greenville to Marlborough.
    .
    You must have a car or motorcycle (summer only) to get around NH. Public transportation just isn't done. Or at least, it's not done well.
    .

    Fly into Manchester, not Boston, the stress and time saved will repay itself for a slightly higher airfare. Drive if at all possible, you'll need a vehicle when you arrive.
    Umm, drive. Or drive. I wouldn't recommend any other way at any cost. Unless you take some kind of Public transport to the mountains and just stay there hiking indefinitely. NH has a sort of public transport system, but its never used.

    Driving is the best way if you are less than 500 miles away. Great scenic routes. Logan International Airport (Boston, MA) is about 1 hour away. Manchester Airport and Pease Internatioal Airport (both in southern NH) offer great alternatives to the city and Boston traffic. The Down Easter train service also stops in NH at Exeter and Dover with routes to Maine, Boston and connections to NY, etc.

    You can fly directly to Manchester which has a nice little airport. US Airways serves it, I believe. It's much more satisfactory than flying to Boston and then driving north.
    You have to have a car. Gas up in the major cities -- Concord, Manchester, Keene -- or it gets pretty expensive.

    Drive your car and then you have easy access to the hiking trails and attractions. I put 2530 km on my car on this trip. If you plan on doing a lot of long hikes, buy a pass that will allow you to park your car for extended periods of time.
    A dry car is also a welcome thing at the end of a long, wet hike, and you can crank up the heater to dry your clothes!

    Sometimes the only answer is to walk. This February day followed a day of rain and ice. One could walk on the crust of the snow. It was impossible to ski, snowshoe, or drive a car on this road. This is not a public road that is maintained.
    Walking today.
