ENJOY THE FALL SEASON IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
Industry: Events       

Early predictions are for a vibrant but early autumn show of color, following a dry summer. The air is starting to cool off and the leaves in some parts of New Hampshire are already showing a hint that fall is on the way. While we have had our fill of hot summer days, the approach of the fall foliage season now provides a reason to step outside and experience New Hampshire’s annual fall show. And, northern NH was less impacted by the summer drought, so be ready for a great show.

(TRAVPR.COM) USA - September 23rd, 2016 - Early predictions are for a vibrant but early autumn show of color, following a dry summer. The air is starting to cool off and the leaves in some parts of New Hampshire are already showing a hint that fall is on the way.  While we have had our fill of hot summer days, the approach of the fall foliage season now provides a reason to step outside and experience New Hampshire’s annual  fall show. And, northern NH was less impacted by the summer drought, so be ready for a great show.

The Granite State offers many ways to experience the season, whether by boat, car, on foot or from an aerial view. New Hampshire in the fall bursts with the colors of nature and a variety of activities.  The trick is to get off the beaten path, and explore new ways to see great colors.

New Hampshire’s foliage season runs roughly from mid-September to mid-October, but this varies widely depending on weather, topography and geography. Just before the season begins, a sneak preview of fall can be found as swamp maples surrounding some ponds and lakes may turn a fiery red, and the deciduous trees of northern New Hampshire may have already begun their transformation.  Columbus Day Weekend is often the focal point of fall foliage excursions, but the White Mountains can present earlier colors, especially in a dry year.

There are plenty of activities to keep visitors busy for a day or weekend. Here are a few ways to enjoy New Hampshire’s fall colors. 

By Boat:

TAKE A CRUISE FOR A COLORFUL VIEW

One special place to enjoy the foliage is Lake Winnipesaukee. It's hard to see foliage while you're driving, so why not take a cruise on the M/S Mount Washington and let the captains handle the rest. The big lake has amazing color and the juxtaposition of the water and sky can be breathtaking. Sundays in September and October, they offer early sunset dinner cruises from Weirs Beach.  Daily daytime cruises also run through October 16. For more information visit www.cruisenh.com or call 603-366-5531.

By Train:

TAKE THE TRAIN THROUGH THE TREES OR A LIFT OVER THE MOUNTAINS

Climb aboard one of the region's three sightseeing trains for unique views of foliage: Hobo Scenic Railroad in Lincoln; the Conway Scenic Railroad in Conway, and the legendary Cog Railway that chugs up Mount Washington from its base in Bretton Woods (always the place to catch early color). For more information visit www.visitwhitemountains.com or call 603-745-8720.

For a different aerial view, take the sky ride to get a bird's eye view of fall foliage. Ski mountains in the area offer trips on their chairlifts and gondolas to the tops of their mountains, where the views can be simply spectacular.  Consider the Loon Mountain Gondola in Lincoln; the Wildcat Mountain Gondola in Jackson, and the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway in Franconia. Nothing beat the view from the top! For more information and suggestions, visit http://www.skinh.com/scenic-chairlift-rides.

Indoors:

THE MOUNTAINS FROM ANOTHER VIEW & TIME

Visitors can view art dedicated to the Mount Washington region beginning on October 1 at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester. “Mount Washington: The Crown Jewel of New England” is on display through January 16, 2017 and features major paintings by Hudson River School artists and others, as well as prints, vintage photographs and illustrated guidebooks from the late 1820s through the 1870s. Tickets to the exhibition are $5/person extra.  

A LUXURY VIEWPOINT IN THE SKY

This fall, foliage seekers have a new option to enjoy New England colors. A massive private Penthouse, with floor to ceiling windows set high over Manchester, NH, with views over 100 miles, is available for leaf peepers. The Penthouse in the Sky has three bedrooms, five bathrooms and can accommodate up to six guests. There is a private concierge, a kitchen with every possible gizmo, an indoor garden and 12,000 square feet of high fashion luxury. Prices start at $750 per person (double occupancy). For more information, visit www.thepenthouseinthesky.com.

In a Valley:

SURROUNDED BY FOREST AT WATERVILLE VALLEY RESORT

There is nothing like fall in New England, and Waterville Valley Resort, located in the middle of the White Mountain National Forest, has a full slate on tap this fall for those seeking the best colors of foliage season. The Valley tends to get plenty of moisture – so the show should be amazing this year.

Celebrate the arrival of fall with Waterville Valley’s Fall Foliage Fest over Columbus Day Weekend, October 8-10. A weekend of fun family events is planned including kids’ games, pumpkin painting, and a visit from Bruce the Moose and the Valley Snow Dogz.

Foliage is also the perfect time of the year to hike and bike Waterville Valley’s extensive trail system that includes more than 30 miles of marked and maintained mountain bike trails and over 100 miles of hiking trails and paths. Whether it’s a leisurely ride around town or a dirt-kicking expedition through the autumn woods, you’ll find plenty of trails to suit your mood.  Bike and boat rentals will be open all weekend during Columbus Day. For more information, visit www.visitwatervillevalley.com or call 800-GO-VALLEY.
