The Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway is an 80-passenger cable car that brings visitors to the 4,080-foot summit of Cannon Mountain. If it’s a clear day, you can see the mountains in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, and Canada! And the ride takes only 10 minutes! At the summit, you’ll find spectacular scenic walking paths, as well as a 360 degree observation deck, a cafe, bar, and restrooms. It takes only 10 minutes and 13 bucks to climb aboard the 80-passenger car and reach the 4,080-foot summit, where–if the weather holds–you can see four states and into southeastern Canada. Located at 9 Franconia Notch State Park, Franconia, NH. Phone: 603-823-8800.
