If you take an evening cruise aboard the M/S Mount Washington, keep an eye out for Captain Denis Finnerty. For 12 seasons he’s been working for the company, 11 of them on the bridge of the Mount. On Mother’s Day this year, he took his first cruise on the vessel as Captain and has spent the season largely covering nighttime cruises.
Captain Bruce Campbell is the company’s Renaissance Man. Not only does he serve as captain, but he’s an accomplished musician, master storyteller, and computer whiz.
Head to Waterville Valley and help send off summer in style during the ‘Just Ducky’ End of Summer Bash. This annual event is a one-day celebration over Labor Day Weekend, September 3.
The McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center is delighted to remind Granite Staters that shooting stars will once again fill the night skies, when the Perseid Meteor Showers return August 11-13. The waning moon will wash out fainter meteors, but as this meteor shower is known for its high prevalence of fireballs, there should still be a great sky show, with forty to fifty ‘shooting stars’ per minute visible in the night sky.
Yes, summer is coming to an end, but Labor Day in New Hampshire is one last chance to get out there with a variety of fun events and activities.

After a total makeover of its historic Main Street and four awards later, including the National Transportation Infrastructure Award and the 2017 Preservation Achievement Award, Concord, NH, seems to have hit the destination trifecta – new eateries, cultural venues and shops. Do it all on foot and go on a shopping spree because in case you forgot there is no sales tax in New Hampshire. Just 1 hour north of Boston, this once sleepy capital city is quickly waking up. That is a big deal in a state more known for mountains and hiking than its urban environment.
