Get outside all season long: Our favorite New England fall outdoor activities

As the seasons change, some of us may be dreading the long, cold winter indoors. Our team has really enjoyed spending time outdoors this summer and we aren’t ready for that to end. Luckily, fall in New England offers a variety of options for enjoying the crisp air. We’ve compiled a list of the Senné team’s favorite activities in the area for safely enjoying some time outside.

Pick Some Apples 

Apple picking is a New England staple in the fall. This year, be sure to visit any of the numerous orchards in the area to pick some sweet apples and enjoy the fresh air. Put on your favorite flannel shirt and grab an apple cider donut as a treat. Some farms even have other activities like a petting zoo, corn maze, or pumpkin patch. 

Spend Some Time In Nature

Whether you’re looking for a light nature walk or a strenuous hike, there are options galore in New England. If you’re looking to stay near the Greater Boston area, check out parks like the Middlesex Fells, Blue Hills Reservation, or Mount Auburn Cemetery for a brisk walk. For a bigger challenge, you’ll want to go further out to some of New England’s grand mountain ranges: The White Mountains in New Hampshire, the Green Mountains in Vermont, or the Berkshires in Massachusetts.  

Admire The Foliage 

It’s leaf peeping season! One of the clearest—and most beautiful—signs that it is fall are the bright orange, yellow, and red trees. You can enjoy fall foliage anywhere in New England. Whether you’re up in the mountains or walking down the Charles River Esplanade, you’ll want to fully enjoy the sights before the leaves start to drop. 

Get Scared

One of the most thrilling fall activities is a day trip to Salem, Massachusetts. Best known as the site of the Salem Witch Trials, Salem fully embraces its witchy reputation year-round. In October, the town takes it up a notch with outdoor markets, haunted houses, tarot card readings, and more. Take a stroll through town to check out some of the spookily decorated homes and learn more about its eerie past at one of the many monuments or statues in the area. 

Stay By The Water

When you think of beaches, you might automatically think of summer. However, don’t discount New England’s shoreline during these upcoming months. In the fall, you’ll find that the temperature is still comfortable for enjoying a stroll by the ocean and you’ll likely find some peace and quiet as the crowds begin to dissipate. 

No matter where you live in New England, there are always tons of options for spending time outdoors. Fall is when we get to enjoy some comfortable cool temperatures after a scorching summer.
