Around PSU

Our campus is minutes from the White Mountain National Forest, where you’ll find miles and miles of trails for hiking, biking and rock climbing. The nearby Lakes Region offers opportunities for water sports: sailing, snorkeling, or simply floating. Great restaurants, shopping venues, clubs, museums and entertainment are only a car ride away.
