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.

Best time to see foliage?

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 Lakes Region is now experiencing peak to past peak foliage conditions. What does that mean? There are a lot more leaves on the ground. But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the crunch of leaves under your feet (and what color is left on the trees). Make an excuse to go, like The Yardbirds show at the Flying Monkey in Plymouth or get zombified (dress like a zombie) for the Rochester Zombie Walk and Trick or Treat on the Town on Friday.
