Know Before You Go

The White Mountains region, our businesses, and our Attractions are open, friendly, close-by, and ready to entertain you.

The health, safety, and well-being of residents and visitors continues to be a top priority and our area tourism businesses are encouraging everyone to take precautions to protect their health and that of family members by following steps to help continue to stop the spread of COVID-19 including practicing social distancing, wearing face masks, and avoiding large crowds and gatherings.

Effective May 7, 2021 , prior restrictions and guidance for tourism related businesses was replaced with Universal Best Practices . The best practices are recommendations for businesses and organizations to consider implementing in their business operations going forward. Please note: Many business entities may choose to implement additional precautions for the health and safety of employees and guests and these safety measures should not be disregarded.

Plan Ahead

Call or visit the website of the Attraction 
or business you want to visit to learn about their guidelines and any changes to their operations. Learn whether tickets must be pre-purchased online or if you need to make reservations. Do not be disappointed by being uninformed!

Play it SAFE

You are encouraged to Wear a Mask inside Attractions, businesses, and anytime you are unable to maintain 6-feet of physical distancing from people not in your party. You will find that
cloth face coverings are required at most places, indoors.

Pack Your Patience

Attractions and Businesses are
operating differently. They have adapted to new “norms” posed by COVID-19, and we encourage you to embrace those changes designed to protect the health of guests, our employees, and our communities.
