Mark your calendars for an astronomical event that promises to captivate and awe: the upcoming solar eclipse taking place on Monday, April 8th, 2024. As the moon passes between the Earth and the sun, casting its shadow and creating a breathtaking spectacle, Path Resorts invites you to witness this celestial marvel from some of the most picturesque spots in the Lakes Region and beyond. Thanks to the State of NH Department of Tourism, we’ve been provided with an ample supply of solar eclipse viewing glasses, which we picked up at the Lakes Region Chamber, ensuring every guest at Steele Hill Resort, The Summit Resort and The Center Harbor Inn can safely enjoy the eclipse.

2. The Summit Resort: A Serene Eclipse Experience

At The Summit Resort, guests can enjoy a peaceful viewing experience surrounded by the natural beauty of the Lakes Region. With spacious grounds, the resort offers multiple vantage points to witness the celestial dance of the solar eclipse. Whether you choose to gather with fellow guests in open areas or prefer a more private viewing from the comfort of your balcony, we’ve got you covered.

3. Center Harbor Inn: Beachside Viewing and Hot Tub Relaxation

Imagine watching the eclipse from the soothing warmth of an outdoor four-season hot tub or along a private beach. Center Harbor Inn, with its tranquil lakeside ambiance, provides both settings offering a blend of relaxation and cosmic wonder, ensuring a memorable eclipse viewing experience. The serene waters of Lake Winnipesaukee and the picturesque shoreline create a perfect backdrop for the upcoming solar eclipse.

4. Mount Washington: Totality in the High Peaks

For adventurers seeking to elevate their experience and view the eclipse in almost full totality (99.2%!), a trip to Mount Washington could provide an unparalleled viewing opportunity. Situated at the highest peak in the Northeast, the observatory offers expansive skylines and a unique vantage point above the clouds, making it an exceptional spot for eclipse enthusiasts. The thrill of hiking up the mountain adds an adventurous element to the experience, immersing viewers in the natural beauty of the surroundings as they ascend towards an unforgettable celestial event. The Mount Washington Auto Road is offering a select number of guided tours, including six stagecoach tours, to provide passengers with a unique experience to view the solar phenomenon amidst the breathtaking landscapes.

5. Franconia Notch State Park: Nature’s Theater

Another fantastic location to view the eclipse in its totality is Cannon Mountain at Franconia Notch State Park. The park’s vast open spaces and minimal light pollution provide a natural amphitheater for observing the cosmic spectacle. The breathtaking surroundings of the park add to the overall experience, making it a memorable location for eclipse viewing. Adding to the allure, Cannon Mountain will be hosting an Eclipse Fest event, complete with a performance by Dub Apocalypse, an instrumental dub reggae band hailing from Boston, MA. The music will play slopeside, enhancing the eclipse experience with rhythmic vibes. Event tickets are priced at $30 each, and the festivities are scheduled to run from 2:00 – 5:30 pm, creating an ideal setting to celebrate this celestial event.
