I'm probably going there latter this summer. What is the road like and what is there to see up there?

Two lanes and near the headwaters of the Connecticut River.  I like Berlin, NH.

It’s gorgeous and much longer than I expected. I’ve been all the way up 93 enough times and have always thought, “Oh there’s just a little more to New Hampshire beyond here.” Wrong.

The customs guy gave me instructions to hike to Fourth Connecticut Lake, source of the river, but I had to keep moving. It is possible to straddle the whole of the mighty Connecticut, though, if you know where to look.

I would love to travel all of US 3 myself from Boston to the Canadian Border.  Hope it is sill around in a few years after this chaos dies down as I have yet tackled the rest of NH and I-93 as well as VT highways and ME highways.  Been on them as a kid but never drove them in great lengths gown up as only did NH 9 and 101 back in 2003.
