Autumn is one of New England’s four best seasons. (Here at Masiello Employment—located in Keene, New Hampshire—we strive to enjoy all months equally.) To make sure you harvest yourself the best time this fall, we’ve created a round-up of season-sational activities and adventures all around the state.

 

Take Your Pick—Then Take a Bite

There might not be anything that represents fall in New England as much as picking apples at a local orchard—second only by snacking on still-warm apple cider donuts, savoring every last grain of sugar on your fingertips. Parenting NH magazine takes a bite out of the best apple orchards in New Hampshire, and tells you which ones warm you up (pre- and post-picking) with fresh-made apple cider donuts.

 

Be a Leaf Peeper

As native New Englanders, it’s our duty to complain about all the out-of-towners who invade our space this time of year but, here’s the thing, we can’t beat ‘em so we might as well join ‘em. Get your binoculars and camera, fill the tank with gas, and hit the road in time to peep at some leaves. According to the experts at Yankee magazine, this 75-mile round-trip drive is the best route to take in New Hampshire to enjoy the beautiful brilliance of changing autumnal leaves.

 

Eat, Drink, & Be Merry

The harvest season is ripe with fairs and festivals all around the state. Visit-NewHampshire.com offers this list of where to be to maximize your fun this season, in spots near and fair (we meant, near and far). And, of course, the Keene Pumpkin Festival made the list!

 

Cross a Covered Bridge

If you’ve never seen a Covered Bridge (also known as a kissing bridge as young lovers could steal a smooch away from prying eyes!) now is your chance!  With 66 on the map in the Granite State – you’re sure to find a favorite of your own.

 

Take a Hike—or a Walk

If you’d rather have an up-close-and-personal experience with turning leaves, grab your hiking boots and hit the trail. But not just any trail! NH Magazine shares its 10 Great Foliage Hikes in NH. If hiking isn’t your thing, the article also includes a handful of easy, but no less thrilling, walks.

 

Have an A-Maze-ing Adventure

Kids of all ages enjoy getting lost and found—over and over again—in a corn maze. Pack your compass and your cell phone (and a flare gun if you’re extra-cautious) and spend some time at one of New Hampshire corn mazes recommended by Parenting NH magazine.

 

Enjoy an Easy Ride

Take your hands off the wheel and still take in a full spectrum of glorious autumnal glory with a fall foliage train ride. There are lots of lines and tours to choose from, including the Mount Washington Cog Railway in Bretton Woods, NH, Conway Scenic Railway in North Conway, NH, and Hobo Railroad and Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad in different locations in Lincoln, NH, Weirs Beach, NH and Meredith, NH.
