Hart's location was parodied on the television series The West Wing. It is also the home to picturesque Crawford Notch State Park which has "has 5,775 acres providing access to numerous hiking trails, waterfalls, fishing, wildlife viewing, and spectacular mountain views". The park is also home to Dry River Campground with 35 sites.

Author Nathaniel Hawthorne was inspired to write the story The Ambitious Guest in 1835, based on a tragic event in Hart's Location. A landslide covered a family home, with only a Bible placed on a table remaining intact.

Keeping with our literary theme, Frankenstein's Trestle, an intimidating railroad bridge, crosses a portion of Crawford Notch. The Conway Scenic Railroad still provided thrills and chills as it passes over the rocky ridge and stunning scenery.

For dining and lodging, The Notchland Inn on Route 302 is "understated elegance" surrounded by amazing scenery. Bretton Woods and North Conway are nearby for additional dining and lodging.
