Mt. Washington

New Hampshire

Mount Washington, in New Hampshire'€™s White Mountain National Forest, is the tallest peak in the Northeastern U.S. Known for high wind gusts, the mountain gets hit with roughly 21 feet of snow per year and houses the Mount Washington Observatory, a scientific institution that calls itself the "€Home of the World€™s Worst Weather.€" Surprisingly, in warmer seasons, a weekend here makes for a great romantic getaway.
