New Hampshire Fall Foliage Colors Update

Bookmark and ShareBetty Gagne, of the New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism Development, just sent us some good news on more fall foliage colors arriving in the Granite State's Great North Woods Region.

Also called New Hampshire’s "Grand North," this region features swamp maples along the rivers and higher elevations showing "some nice, bright reds" –- indicating that peak fall foliage will be arriving soon. Mountain slopes are showing some fall foliage progress with hints of red and yellow coming to life, also.

This official New Hampshire tourism group also states that paddling along the Northern Forest Canoe Trail or driving the Connecticut River Scenic Byway are "great ways to see the early autumn colors." They also recommend Route 26 from Errol to Colebrook as a dramatic scenic drive, especially with the impending peak fall foliage.

We recommend logging onto The New Hampshire Foliage Report Web Site for more on what's happening during the New Hampshire fall season. You can also call the New Hampshire tourism hotline New Hampshire 800.258.3600 for more fall foliage updates

If your in the Lakes Region of NH, the Lakes Region Association has a new fall foliage page where you can post your own foliage reports. All foliage sightings posted on LakesRegion.org are incorporated into the report that is sent to Betty at NH Division of Travel and Tourism twice weekly. Take a live peek at the foliage from the Web Cam page on LakesRegion.org - Find it from the Regional Information Page.

New England Travel and Vacation Gazette readers,
If you haven't been to the Lakes Region, you're in for a vacation and travel treat. Classic small New Hampshire lake towns like Meredith and Wolfeboro are perfect for fall foliage touring. We can't say enough good things about this pristine, scenic region. Thanks Lakes Region Association for alerting us to your page!
