A quick trip on one of the trains that traverse the White Mountains. Not very expensive and an enjoyable excursion, to say nothing of the nice little lunch we had on he train.

I'm a railroad enthusiast, but this 80-minute train ride seemed to go on forever. The three cars (2 of which would be considered vintage - from the 1940's) were pulled by a nondescript switching diesel through a nondescript forest to a nondescript golf course (where...More
