New Hampshire is one of the best places in the world to witness the brilliant crimsons and golds of fall. To help visitors decide when to take a tour of the countryside, NewHampshire.com will publish weekly updates on how the fall colors are progressing during the fall foliage season.

When is the best time to see foliage in NH?

The foliage peaks at different times in different parts of the state. Generally, the best times to view the fall colors are near the end of September in the far north, the beginning of October in the White Mountain region, and the middle of October in the south.

The Seacoast Region - always the last to turn - is just slowly crawling toward Fall, and there are still lots of green trees. However, You'll see fewer trees by the coast but some of the towns in the region are starting to blossom. A suggestion would be to visit Wagon Hill Farm in Durham for a walk through a meadow. The trail will take you to the Oyster River which offers beautiful views, especially in the late afternoon. You can pick out a pumpkin at Emery Farm which is practically across the Street. There you can snack on the perfect fall treat, cider donuts! - or take a hayride, visit their cornmaze, or feed the animals. Emery Farm is one of the oldest farms in the country, having been in the same family since 1660. A stop worth making before heading to the next spectacular view in the seacoast region.
