This Charming Maine Town Is Picture Perfect For An Autumn Day Trip

Living in Maine, we’re fortunate to always be just steps away from natural beauty. But there’s something extra special about our state in autumn. When we think about fall, our minds go to the mountains — to quiet country roads and trees ablaze in their most brilliant colors; to silver peaks in seas of gold and red and amber; to quaint towns that are as inviting as a hot mug of cider. Our minds go to Bethel and neighboring Newry, two Western Maine towns at the foot of the White Mountains. Our pick for the perfect way to spend a fall day.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

We know that everybody has a different definition of “day trip” depending on where they live. So let us know where you love to spend your beautiful fall afternoons!
