Connecticut River Byway
and Waypoint Communities


Connecticut River Byway

The US Department of Transportation has strict guidelines to define a scenic byway. The program has been in place since 1991, and includes regulations for corridor management and designation. The Connecticut River Scenic Byway contains areas in Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

Let's be selfish and focus on New Hampshire. The website,America's Byways describes the drive along the Connecticut River this way:

New England's longest, most powerful river tells the story of clashing continental plates and glaciers, of Abenaki living on the land, and of colonial settlement among fields and forests. Experience traditions, vivid history, deeply rooted farming heritage, call of the railroads, natural beauty, and recreation along the Connecticut River Byway.



Waypoint Communities

The definition of a Waypoint Community is this, according to Waypoint Community

With their origins as early bridge sites, cross roads and railroad hubs, these towns have been welcoming travelers since the days of flat boats, stage coaches, and steam engines.

These are the official Waypoint communities, listed from north to south along the Connecticut River:

Coös/GRAFTON COUNTY
• US Route 3 (Pittsburg - Lancaster)
• Route 145 (Clarksville - Colebrook)
• Route 135 (Lancaster - Woodsville)
• Route 302 (Bath)
• Route 10 (Woodsville - Lebanon)

SULLIVAN COUNTY •
Route 12A (Charlestown)

CHESIRE COUNTY
• Route 12 (Westmoreland)
• Route 63 (Westmoreland - Hinsdale)

Get out there and enjoy the mighty Connecticut River, and all its communities have to offer.
