There are certain staples of North Conway that every visitor knows about: Cranmore Mountain, Zeb’s General Store, the Scenic Railroad, and Storyland, for example. But there are many more shops and businesses that are absolutely worth stopping by! Here are our top 5 locally-owned businesses and shops in North Conway!

North Conway Olive Oil Company

A recent addition to the strip in downtown North Conway, the Olive Oil Company is a wonderful place for foodies to stock up on this essential ingredient! The shop offers olive oil and vinegars infused with all sorts of flavors, from cranberry to coconut to garlic and lemon. They also sell olives, pesto, and specialty salts. They even offer cooking classes – but space is limited, so be sure to reserve early!


Four Your Paws Only

This is a dog lover’s paradise – and a dog’s dream come true! The shop has everything your pup could want, from treats to collars to hiking gear. Dogs are welcome to browse the aisles themselves and pick out something to take home, too! There is even a doggie bakery on the premises, which bakes fresh cookies and treats daily in many different flavors and styles. If you’re bring a dog on your vacation, you really don’t want to miss a stop at FYPO!


Moat Mountain Smokehouse

The Moat is a great hangout and restaurant for locals and visitors alike. They offer a range of delicious barbeque food and handmade pizzas, in addition to burgers and other staples. There is an on-site brewery; if you glance through the glass at the entrance you can see the brewing in action! The Moat always has stouts, ales, and lagers on offer, and they also feature a rotating seasonal brew. Whether you’re dining in the restaurant or carousing in the bar, you’re going to have a good time.
