 The White Mountains Region is a tourism region designated by the New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism. It is located in northern New Hampshire in the United States and is named for the White Mountains, which cover most of the region. The southern boundary of the region begins at Piermont on the west, and runs to Plymouth, then to Conway, and east to the Maine border. The northern boundary begins at Cushman, runs to Berlin and then east to the Maine border. The region to the north is known as the Great North Woods Region, which should not be confused with the larger and more general Great North Woods.
