When: July 7 through 9
How much: Starting at $439

Strap on your dancing shoes and head for the hills—this summer, the Jazz Age will descend upon the White Mountains. Bretton Woods’ iconic Omni Mount Washington Resort is ripping a page from The Great Gatsby to host a Golden Era Jazz Weekend. The Roaring ’20s-themed event is best enjoyed via the resort’s promotional package, which starts at $439 for a weekend of Prohibition-era festivities.

The hotel’s first-ever 1920s weekend presents an impressive lineup of activities. From themed dinners and dance classes to lawn picnics and tours of the historic hotel, guests will honor the Jazz Age in style. There’ll be high tea in the afternoons and more shadowy parties in the Cave, once a speakeasy during Prohibition. Aside from tapping to jazzy tunes at plenty of events, guests can buy or rent costumes, get vintage photos taken, and even purchase treats from cigarette girls roving the resort’s Great Hall.
