New Hampshire Fall Foliage Season Report
New England's Fall foliage is a spectacular sight! It's
not just the color of the leaves, but also the clean, cool air contrasting with
the warm rays of the Sun, colorful mountain views, the smell of the woods, and
yes, the brilliant colors of the leafs make it a very exciting time of year here
in the Granite State. You can look at all the photos you want, but you will
never truly experience what New Hampshire has to offer during the peak of Fall
foliage season unless you come and experience it for yourself.
Places to Stay to See the Fall Foliage in NH:
many Inns and Bed & Breakfasts that help make the Fall foliage season even a
more pleasant experience. Or, if you are more into Hotels and Motels, New
Hampshire has plenty of those as well. No matter where you choose to stay, make
sure you get a chance to see New Hampshire's Fall foliage before you leave.
Where Are the Best Places in New Hampshire to
See the Fall Foliage?
There are many places in New Hampshire that transform into beautiful and natural
works of art, places that are normally overlooked, or you drive right past
without giving it a second thought. As soon as the leaves change colors, the
entire state changes and becomes a picturesque place to be. Even in the cities
of Nashua, Manchester, Concord and Keene, there are great photo opportunities
for even the novice photographer.
The central and Northern regions of NH tend to
be the busiest parts of the state during Fall foliage. The
Franconia Notch region (The Flume),
Lake Winnipesaukee tend to be the more popular destinations, but don't let that change
your thinking about New Hampshire's Fall Foliage in other parts of the state. The entire state from the
Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts and Canada borders are just beautiful places to
see and the best part is that you can drive across the long longest part of the
entire state (from the Massachusetts border to the Canadian border) within
approximately 4 hours. So no matter where you chose the stay, you won't miss any
of the foliage and to top it all off, the best part of the Fall Foliage can be
seen through you car windows. :)
When do the Leaves Change Color in New
The leaves change color at different times, but always
start in Northern New Hampshire and slowly change from North to South at the end
of September or beginning of October. The different times from year to year is
due to the temperature differences. The cooler the air, the sooner the leaves
change color. This also goes for Vermont and Maine as well as other places in
