Fall has officially arrived, and we're so excited. Doesn't it feel like this year has just flown by? We were thinking the same thing.

Fall is a favorite time of year for this writer for countless reasons. Not only is the foliage beautiful, but we can enjoy seasonal activities and treats like pumpkin beverages and baked goods, comfy sweaters, leaf peeping, apple picking, corn mazes, and more. Then of course, there's Halloween and all the fun things that come with the holiday, like ghost stories, haunted houses, spooky movies, costumes, and trick-or-treating (or if you're past the trick-or-treating age, getting a free excuse to eat extra candy).

We could go on and on. Fall is a special time of year, and there's nothing quite like experiencing it in New England.

The tourism industry always excels here during the fall months, and leaf peeper tourists will soon be making the drive to admire the vast, splendid fall foliage that our state is known for. Us locals definitely take it for granted, but we're truly lucky to live in such a beautiful area.

So, where exactly can leaf peepers go to see all the lovely red, orange, and yellow leaves that will be covering the trees? Most people have heard of the famous Kancamagus Highway, known for its incredible views. That road is definitely a must-visit (or must-drive?) for leaf peepers. But what other spots in the state can you explore? Here are some popular recommendations from locals to make your leaf peeping experience all the more memorable.
