Now that summer is shifting into fall and the kids are settling in at school, parents in the Lakes Region of NH are resetting their own schedules. September is the time for everyone to enjoy a fresh start! A little TLC goes a long way, and some pampering helps busy grown-ups acclimate to the new season after a lively summer. To help usher in this change of pace, the specialists at Cascade Spa at Mill Falls are kicking off fall with some fun events and amazing treatments to “relax, renew, and rejuvenate.” Come on in during the month of September and check out some of these great deals…

Next weekend, Meredith Village will once again be filled with live music, delicious food, and beautiful works of creativity as Main Street and the Mill Falls Marketplace are transformed into an outdoor art gallery. This fair is the highlight of the summer season, featuring the works of over 80 local painters, sculptors, jewelers, potters, photographers, and quilters.

Being in New Hampshire in the summertime includes lots of outdoor activity—the season is perfect for boating, swimming, hiking, and biking! Here in the Lakes Region, with our pristine waters surrounded by rolling hills and mountains, there is plenty of opportunity for all of these activities and more, and one of the best ways to explore it all is on bicycle. EKAL Activity Center in Meredith, NH, well known for providing all kinds of fun on the water, is now offering bike rentals to help folks have fun on land, too!

Lake Winnipesaukee is rich with history and tradition, especially when it comes to boats. As long as there have been people at the Lake, there have been canoes, sailboats, speedboats, ferries, and cruise ships! The annual Antique Boat Show that takes place in Alton Bay is one of the most well attended summertime events in the Lakes Region, demonstrating that folks really treasure the timeless adventures that boats can offer. In that spirit, EKAL Activity Center is now offering antique speedboat rides with the newest addition to their fleet, Miss Meredith.
