My husband and I will be visiting North Conway for the first time in late January 2010. We are staying at the Crown Ridge Resort. Our friends with their son may come with us but won't know until late this year.
I have questions regarding the area and if anyone can respond it would be greatly appreciated.
Skiing ~ I noticed that there are three ski areas near the timeshare resort (Cranmore, Attitash and Black Mtn.). For those that skied at any of these places... what did you think of it? I ski alone and I prefer the beginner and intermediate trails.
Horseback Riding ~ Are there any facilities nearby that will offer a trail ride in late January? Most likely I'll be going alone.
Restaurants ~ Any suggestions on good places to eat? We like mid-range, off-the-wall fun places, laid back type restaurants. We love breweries as well.
Attractions ~ Any suggestions?
Travel ~ We plan on driving to Freeport, ME and stay there the night before. From searching on Google Maps... it looks like we are approximately two hours from the resort. Google Maps offered three routes to take from Freeport and I'm not sure which one is the best. We would like to stop at Hannaford in town prior to checking in so not sure if that makes a big difference. For those that travels from ME to North Conway... please let me know which is the best route to take.
Thank you in advance for all of your help.
