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 is always the last to turn, but it's getting there, albeit at its own pace. This is a good time to put on some comfortable shoes and walk around Portsmouth. The trees in Prescott Park are always a site, and if you walk along the skinny streets in this historic town, you'll find some stunning displays. On the other hand, there is still plenty of green too, making for a nice palette of captivating color.
