The Ultimate Guide to Fall Adventure in New England
City living is well and good, but sometimes a body needs to ditch the bright lights and connect with nature. Since time is precious and the world is vast, here it is: our highly curated list of where to bike, hike, hang-glide, and simply take in the view while the weather lasts. Now, get out there.
As New Englanders, we spend a lot of time inside four climate-controlled walls. There are the frigid, thankless winter months and the cruel tease of a still-chilly mud season. Even this past summer, with its great white sharks and freak tornadoes (thanks, climate change), kept us inside more than we’d like to admit. But fall—fall!—that’s the season when we’re arguably most alive. It’s a time when nature shows off like a peacock in the most ostentatious way, flashing its Technicolor reds and yellows from the mountains to the sea. So how will you bask in the pine-scented fresh air this October? Whether you’re seeking high-octane thrills, peace and solitude on a mountaintop, or just a fun way to kill an afternoon with the kids, we have you covered with this ultimate guide to the great outdoors.
