There’s No Better Place To See Fall Colors Than Right Here In New Hampshire
New Hampshire might be small in size, but when it comes to fall foliage, there’s no better place in the country for spectacular views. Autumn in this New England state is nothing short of spectacular, boasting a variety of dramatic hues and unforgettable natural beauty. If you’re lucky enough to find yourself in New Hampshire this season, here are the places you’ll want to check out for unparalleled fall foliage.
New Hampshire’s exquisite natural beauty is no secret, especially for those of us lucky enough to live here. And this season is the best time to appreciate all the landscape has to offer. There’s no better way to appreciate the changing season than by getting outside in that cool, crisp autumn air.
While the leaves have already started their subtle change, it’s fortunate that New Hampshire’s Lakes Region experiences one of the longest seasons in the state. This is partially due to the fact that this area isn’t exposed to harsh weather or high altitude that tends to blow the leaves away in a flash.
These lakes are beautiful anytime of year, but there’s perhaps no better time to see them than in the fall. The clear water serves as a mirror that seems to enhance the amount of reds, yellows, and golds that decorate the landscape. New Hampshire is home to over 270 lakes, each residing just 600 feet or less above sea level. Some of the most popular lakes include Lake Ossipee, Lake Wentworth, and Mirror Lake, although you can't go wrong with any one of them.
For total access into subliminal beauty, you might consider taking a kayak into the middle of one of these lakes. This will provide some of the best views of the surrounding trees and their reflection in the water. If kayaking or hiking seems too strenuous, there are also plenty of scenic drives and even scenic railroads (such as the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad) that offer an unforgettable perspective.
