For a considerable stretch, I-93 ceases to be an interstate highway and becomes the Franconia Notch Parkway. All signs become brown, the speed limit drops significantly, and the views are very impressive. The road climbs to an elevation 1500 feet higher than that which it has before entering the mountains. Each of the pulloffs is the start of at least one (usually many more) hiking trail, and the views off of the hiking trails are considerably more impressive than those from the road.
If you've seen Franconia Notch in one season, you may have trouble recognizing it in another. It varies from icy cold to searingly hot, and the color of your views, depending on the time of year, will be either predominantly green or predominantly white. Come one day, and it will be packed with bustling crowds. Come again later that year, and you will be all alone at each pulloff.
My own favorite time to come--by far--is on an empty winter weekday. But Franconia Notch in the winter is my childhood, so that's not entirely fair.
