Travel & Leisure

Branches around the Sugar Hill Meeting House are losing their leaves as the foliage season wanes. Although the state's finally tally won't be available immediately, anecdotal reports from businesses, industry groups, and chambers of commerce point to the possibility that 2014 will go down in history, at least recent history, for number of visitors and the amount of money they spent while here.

Foliage season was a big hit for North Country businesses

Although the final numbers are still being tabulated, it appears that the bright yellows, oranges and reds of the just-peaked 2014 foliage season had many businesses in the northern part of New Hampshire seeing green which helped put or kept them in the black.

Gov. Maggie Hassan is expected to light up Claremont's 250th sculpture Oct. 26.

With their overnight bags and a sign that reads “Take me to your innkeeper,” a trio of green-headed aliens “landed” recently on Main Street in front of the Inn at Jackson. The display earned the inn the overall first prize for businesses in the 27th annual “Pumpkin People” competition, which runs through Halloween.

Public has an extra 11 days to see 'Pumpkin People' in Jackson area

Every March, the swallows return to San Juan Capistrano and every October, the “Pumpkin People” return to this and a growing number of towns in the Mount Washington Valley, bringing with them – to the joy of business owners -- hordes of admirers from near and far.
