If you poll your friends, family or coworkers, it’s highly likely that they will agree that Fall is their favorite season. And why wouldn’t it be? Its months are characterized by pumpkin carving, cider sipping, apple picking, new educational experiences and so much more. However, in the same breath, those same people will tell you that it’s the shortest season of all (or at least it seems that way). In order to help you make the most out of fall, we have put together this essential list of things to do in New Hampshire.
Experience the Great Outdoors
Fall is the perfect time to get outdoors. The weather transitions away from the muggy summer days and is now crisp and it doesn’t hurt that we have some of the nation’s best foliage. Take full advantage of the season by trying these outdoor activities:
Hike to a waterfall – All of the following falls are located in beautiful New Hampshire: Sabbaday Falls, Glen Ellis Falls, Thompson Falls, Arethusa Falls, Flume Cascade & Silver, Jackson Falls, and Diana's Baths.
Visit the New Hampshire Audubon – The New Hampshire Audubon offers activities for all ages including outdoor activities like full moon and bird walks.
Visit a ski destination – While most would think ski resorts are strictly good for winter activities, that could not be further from the truth! For instance, Wildcat Mountain offers a disc golf course and gondola rides.
Take a golf lesson – Fall offers that perfect crisp air that is perfect for outdoor sports like golf. Instead of focusing on hydration and heat – you can put all of that energy into learning and improving. Here at Atkinson Resort & Country Club we have seven incredible golf professionals available through the Willow Creek Golf Academy who can help you learn to be the best golfer you can be.
Learn about Local History
America’s Stonehenge, one of New Hampshire oldest and most mysterious outdoor attractions was build over 4000 years ago. This location offers people the opportunity to learn about archeology, astronomy and geology. While it is open year-round, fall is a beautiful time to experience due mainly in part to the colorful leaves we noted previously. The hours are 9:00am – 5:00pm, 7 days a week and adult admission is just $12.00 per person.
Sample Autumn-Inspired Drinks
New Hampshire has many local breweries, meaderies, and vineyards. Here’s a brief list:
New Hampshire provides you with the option to sample your way across the state and then settle down to dinner somewhere delicious. Are you wondering where to choose? Consider Merrill’s Tavern for a casual meal and darts or the Stagecoach Grille for a more intimate dining experience. And, the best part about choosing a restaurant at Atkinson Resort & Country Club is that if you’re just too tired and full to make your way home, simply rent one of our Fieldstone Suites!
Go to the Farm
Applecrest Farm – Founded in 1913, Applecrest Farm is a local favorite. They offer pick your own berries, apples and pumpkins, their own farm market and many festivals.
Jenness Farm – This farm focuses on creating natural products like goat milk soap and bath add-ins. However, they also have fun activities like Yoga with Goats! Relax and center yourself for just $24.00 per person!
Apple Annie – This picking destination was chosen as a New Hampshire Farm of Distinction in 2000, and it’s certainly understandable why! They have 12 varieties of apples and a rich history.
When it comes to festivals and fairs, you just can’t beat New Hampshire! Notable fall options include: Deerfield Fair, the Annual Exeter Powder Keg Beer & Chili Festival, New Hampshire Brewfest and the NH Pumpkin Festival. You can see more options on NHMagazine’s online list.
New Hampshire is an incredible place to eat, stay and play. We encourage you to do all of this in one location at Atkinson Resort & Country Club!
