November – it’s a time of transitions. Fall and foliage is coming to an end, and skiing is in the not too distant future. In fact, we’ve already seen our first bit of snowfall in our northern reaches! So what to do in the in-between? Shopping, of course, along with other adventures to keep you happy, active and entertained. Check out this month’s picks for fun activities in North Conway and the surrounding towns.

Outdoor Adventures
North Conway is known as a mecca for rock climbers around the world as shown in this photo of Sue Barnett, climbing instructor for IMCS on White Ledge in Albany. Photo by David Lottman, Northeast Mountaineering. 
Fall truly is the best time of year to climb here; we see less traffic and longer views once the leaves are off the trees. International Mountain Climbing School is based here in North Conway and gives guided and private rock climbing lessons, basic rock climbing instruction and more. Other climbing school options include EMS Schools, and Northeast Mountaineering. Book a hotel and come on up for a climbing lesson! 
Arts & Culture Adventures
Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center in Fryeburg welcomes NH Comedian Juston McKinney, Sat. Nov. 12 at 7:30 pm. McKinney has been using the state as his comic muse since the 90's when he served as deputy sheriff on the NH/ME border. With appearances on The Tonight Show, Comedy Central Specials, and consistent sell-outs, Juston is at the top of his game. Check out his video!

Holiday Happenings are on their way beginning later this month. But it’s never too early to start planning your celebrations with us. On Sat. Nov. 26, the Spirit of the Holiday Celebrations begin in North Conway Village with a 4 pm parade and Santa's arrival in Schouler Park at 4:45 pm.
Can’t make it that day? The celebration continues Sat. Dec. 3 in Conway Village as Santa lights the tree at the Chamber's Conway Village Information Booth and then leads everyone to the Ham Arena for the free Holiday Classics on Ice show. 

We always knew the Omni Mount Washington Resort was special but now they have the recognition to prove it. The Mount Washington in Bretton Woods, NH was just named one of the Top 25 Resorts in New England in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards! The resort was one of only two New Hampshire destinations included in this year’s awards. Why not come up for a weekend to experience the Mount Washington and finish up your holiday shopping this November. 

Did you know our region has over 1,200 hiking trails? That’s more than enough to keep even the most ambitious hiker busy for a week … or longer! Start at the AMC Joe Dodge Lodge in Pinkham Notch for lodging, and ask for the latest trail conditions. November can bring lots of surprises weather-wise, especially in the mountains, so be sure to ask for the latest trail conditions. Winter hiking is also popular – if you have the right clothing and equipment. Prefer a more civilized hiking experienced? Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center has walking trails, bike trails and in winter, cross country skiing, tubing and more.
