After your wine tasting, take a quick walk down the hallway of Riverwalk Resort where you will find La Vista, serving Italian inspired cuisine. Enjoy a glass of wine, order a couple of delicious wood-fired pizzas, and share a homemade tiramisu.
On a clear night, if you drive up the Kancamagus Highway to one of the scenic overlooks, you will feel like you are in a planetarium show. Millions of stars will be twinkling and it seems like you could reach out and touch them. The Leonid Meteor Shower is November 17-8 and the Kanc would be a prime spot to watch for meteors.
