Home to intriguing and timeless New England colonial history, southeastern New Hampshire has over 125 miles of scenic byways to explore. The 43-mile Robert Frost Old Stagecoach Scenic Byway was once the stagecoach route between Boston and Concord. The 50-mile Upper Lamprey Scenic Byway follows the path of the Lamprey River, passing through the historic sections of Deerfield, Northwood and Cadia. The 34-mile General Stark Scenic Byway is a closed loop that connects four age-old New England towns.
The Robert Frost Old Stagecoach Byway is really two stories. The Old Stagecoach Byway travels along NH Route 121, until it joins the Robert Frost Byway on NH Route 28 and local routes through Derry village, where Poet Laureate Robert Frost lived from 1900-1911.
The Upper Lamprey Scenic Byway highlights scenic vistas and rolling farmland as well as cultural gems in Deerfield and Northwood’s “Antique Alley,” embedded in 18th and 19th century New England history. General John Stark Scenic Byway connects four historic towns, each with its own charm and local festivals.
