As a kid, I always enjoyed shopping at the North Conway outlets. With no taxes on (most) purchases of goods, we always were able to get great deals. Our annual family vacation to North Conway became a back-to-school shopping trip. Now that I have my own kids, we enjoy shopping and saving money at the North Conway NH outlets.

Location of the North Conway Outlets
In the past, the North Conway outlets were spread out along the White Mountain Highway. If you wanted to spent the day outlet shopping, you had to drive to individual mini outlet mall buildings and walk around.
Now, almost all of the North Conway NH outlets are concentrated at Settlers Green Outlet Village. This outlet mall has a large parking lot spread out among many different areas of the mall. So, you can park near where you want to shop, or park in a central location and walk around.
Settlers Green is located right in North Conway, and is convenient for anyone visiting the White Mountains. It’s not too far from Lincoln, NH, and is near Story Land in Glen, NH. Even if outlet shopping isn’t your primary purpose for visiting the area, it’s definitely worth checking out the outlets.

There’s also an LL Bean outlet located across the street.

Amenities at the North Conway Outlets
Within Settlers Green, you’ll find a variety of amenities that make your visit easier. The entire complex offers free WiFi, which can be especially helpful if you don’t get great cell phone service in the area.
Complimentary wheelchairs and strollers are available to borrow on a first-come, first-served basis. These can be picked up at customer service during select hours.
ATMs and vending machines are available. In general, however, you probably won’t need to take out cash, as most places accept credit cards.
Public art, a water fountain, a firepit, nature trails, and picnic tables are also offered to guests. There are plenty of places to stop and rest if you need to take a quick break.
Settlers Green also offers a mother’s room and several restrooms around the property.
The outlet village offers events throughout the year, including tent sales. During our most recent visit at the end of July, we were able to take advantage of many great sales – our favorite was the New Balance tent sale where we got the kids all new sneakers for the school year.
There are also car shows, a busker festival, a Christmas stroll, a fall festival, movie nights, and so much more. Check the website for specific details of what is being offered during your visit.
Tips for Visiting the North Conway NH Outlets
You’ll want to do a few things before visiting. First, look at the website to see the specific operating hours during your time in New Hampshire. Hours vary during the year, so make sure you get the latest information.
It’s also a good idea to look at the full list of stores to see which ones you want to visit. My daughter went through the list, and came up with a plan of where to start and end. If you plan to do a lot of shopping, you may want to go back to your car to drop off bags before you continue.
Before shopping, visit the customer service desk. There, you’ll be able to get a coupon book to many of the stores, which can help you save even more money during your outlet trip.
Restaurants at the North Conway Outlets
If you get hungry while shopping, you’ll have plenty of places to eat. Whether you want a quick bite or a sit down meal, there are several options.
We ate at the Barley and Salt Tap House and Kitchen. It offers outdoor seating, a bar, and a dining room. We loved the food there and would definitely recommend it.
There’s also the Black Cap Grille, which is located across the street in the Settlers Crossing plaza. I haven’t eaten there, but the menu looks great.
A brand-new restaurant, called Fire by Wicked Fresh, opened recently. It offers pizzas and salads, and also has outdoor seating.
In addition to these sit down restaurants, there are some quick places to eat as well. Settlers Crossing has a Subway and a Starbucks. Keep in mind, however, that this is across the street from the main Settlers Green area.
If you’d like coffee or a quick breakfast, the Met Coffeehouse opens one hour before the stores open. There’s also the White Mountain Cupcakery and the Trails End Sweets and Treats.
- In the center of the main outlet village is two food counters – Wicked Street Urban Eats and Wicked Munchies Snack Shack. There’s no seating at these locations, but you could easily grab a snack and sit at one of the many nearby benches.
