Apple picking and leaf peeping
It’s nearly impossible to imagine fall in the area without thinking of the changing colors of fall or biting into a piece of apple pie. Although both apple picking and leaf peeping involve leaving Boston, it will be well worth the ride.
Apple picking: Fun for any age group, the fall tradition involves trekking out to a farm where people can pick fresh apples, taste some cider donuts, and maybe even go on some hay rides. Visit our apple picking guide for locations and recipes.
Leaf peeping: Head to Vermont or New Hampshire (before ski season hits) and take in the scenic colors of the season. Pictured is the Kancamagus Highway in the White Mountain National Forest, N.H. Take the GPS tour of the White Mountains foliage. Take a look at the peak foliage map.
