New Hampshire’s Lakes Region Gears Up for Gorgeous Foliage

This was provided to us by the Lakes Region Tourism Association

Fiery reds, warm oranges and sunny yellows are starting their annual takeover of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. The season – a favorite for many in the Granite State – is popular with visitors, because not only do temperatures cool off after months of summer humidity, but once-green landscapes turn into gorgeous hues that attract people from all over the country.

Lakes Region Fall Foliage

Lakes Region visitors have plenty of options from where they can do their “leaf peeping. Many choose to drive back roads to see the colors up close. Others opt to charter a boat or take a cruise of one of the many lakes, from Squam Lake to Winnipesaukee and Sunapee, to gaze at more of the views on a wider scale; the reflections of the foliage on the water double the impact. Outdoorsy types may choose to hike a nearby mountain or bike the hills, taking in the fresh air and one-of-a-kind views at the same time.

It should be noted that Tropical Storm Irene, which raged through the northeast in August, left New Hampshire’s Lakes Region with no physical damage, making the area the ideal spot for tourists in northern New England.

Fall and foliage-related events are popular at this time of year. Here are a few highlights:

  • Sept. 16-18: New Hampshire Highland Games at Loon Mountain Ski Resort in Lincoln – The largest Scottish festival in the Northeast includes the International Highland Games Federation Professional Scottish Heavy Events World Championships, as well as the IHGF World Hammer Championships.

Pick an Apple, Win an iPad or iPod: Vermont’s Apples to iPods

The State of Vermont knows how to kick off apple picking season. Kicking off this weekend at Adams Apple Orchard in Williston will be the Apples to iPods event.

The event is very simple, find the wooden iPod apple while out picking apples and you win an iPod, or maybe even an iPad! If you don’t win you still end up with a bag full of delicious Vermont apples – so you win anyway…

These specially-marked wooden apples will be placed in 15 of Vermont’s pick-your-own apple orchards all over the state. So head out to pick some apples and maybe get lucky and pick up an iPod.

The kickoff event for Apples to iPods will be at Adams Apple Orchard on September 16 at 1:30 PM.

In the state where the state fruit and the state pie are both apple, this is a wonderful way to kick off the fall apple picking season.
