The McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center will premiere its newest planetarium show, Life under the Arctic Sky, on Friday night, October 6 at 7 p.m. Life under the Arctic Sky explores the Northern Lights from both the perspective of scientists and of the Sami, the indigenous Scandinavians who traditionally herded their reindeer over hundreds of miles, their way lit only by the moon, the stars, and these dancing lights in the northern sky. The show will be followed by an update on August’s solar eclipse, by Discovery Center staff and amateur astronomers who traveled to the Path of Totality to watch the eclipse.
Mount Washington Cog Railway offers families an exhilarating experience like none other. A ride on the Mt. Washington Cog Railway includes much more than a train journey up the steep slope of Mt. Washington. It also includes an early view of New Hampshire’s fall foliage on route to the top of Mount Washington, the highest point in all New England.
The Granite State offers many ways to experience the season, whether by boat, car, on foot or from an aerial view. New Hampshire in the fall bursts with the colors of nature and a variety of activities. The trick is to get off the beaten path, and explore new ways to see great colors.

Yes, Squam (pronounced Skwom). Over the years the name has evolved from its Native Abenaki name, Keeseenunknipee, to Squam, as we use today. In between those names you could also find Wonnassquamauke, Casumpe, and Asquam (the Abenaki name for ‘water’). As I said before, its got a funny name, but you’ll forget all about that when you see what the area has to offer.
The spirit of fall is at home in the Concord area –with big pumpkins shining in the crisp fall air. It is fun for kids to pick a pumpkin, get some apples, have fresh cider and doughnuts- and take in eh the fall colors.
This fall, the best way to enjoy foliage is in a mountain valley with 360 degree views. And you don’t have to be in a car to enjoy the brilliant colors of autumn in Waterville Valley, NH, set in the heart of the White Mountain National Forest with a wide selection of activities for everyone.
