Fall colors 2014, rained out? — 5 Comments

  1. My friends and I will be visiting New England for the first time this fall. Our main objective, of course, is to see the fall color. We will be staying at the Inn Season Resort @ Pollard Brook from October 19th to 26th. I would appreciate any ‘words of wisdom’ you could share with this ‘first timer’. Any “don’t miss” or “don’t bother” advice? Thanks in advance. BTW, I came across your FB page through a photo ‘liked’ by one of my pages and I have since ‘liked’ your page. And I will be spending a lot more time on your website. Looks like there is a lot of interesting information there.

    • Hi Linda, for those who don’t know, the Inn season resort is in Lincoln NH on Route 112 (the Kanc or Kancamagus highway). Well Linda I’m comfortable telling you, that you will spend much of your time driving south past Lake Winnipesaukee and into southern NH or even Massachusetts. I think we’ll see early color this fall. Not 1 Sept or peak on 15 Sept but the signs are looking that there will be color development earlier in Sept through more southern areas of New England.

      But if you read my articles you would see that in any year (except 2011 and 2005) by these dates (19-26 Oct) I would be directing people to MA/CT/RI to locate themselves…
      Don’t miss… that’s tough.. A drive along the Kanc should be nice.. (no to not much color left but not much traffic either, Bonus!) You’ll have Conway and all the tax free outlet shopping to yourself. Drive up the road to Jackson and check out the Ravenwood curio shoppe. Take my word for it… it’s worth stopping at…
      Help or Hurt?

  2. Jeff – thank you so much for providing your insight. We know that no one can predict, however, do you think that it is possible to see fall colors as late as the last week of October this year? Thank you so much!

    • Hi Patricia T. You’ll be glad to know there is always fall colors through the end of Oct BUT! Where… If you go looking up in the White mountains you will be most likely disappointed. The color I speak of is down along the shoreline and depending on the year Salem has had a colorful Halloween. Take a ride down along the coastline of Rhode Island and Connecticut and the little towns of Tiverton and Barrington and over to Mystic CT for some mystic pizza! (and the tall ships).
