Maine Fall Foliage

Fall Foliage in Maine

Fall foliage in New England is spectacular. People come from all over the world to see the leaves change, and Maine has arguably the best foliage with bright orange, yellow and red leaves in dramatic contrast against the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the many fresh water lakes and rivers.

 

The best time to see fall foliage in Maine is late September until the week after Columbus Day Weekend. Traditionally, Columbus Day Weekend is Peak Fall Foliage. September and October the Maine weather is usually perfect for touring the coast or heading into the Maine lakes region and the mountains to see the spectacular birches, oaks, maples and other deciduous trees whose leaves turn gorgeous fall colors.

 

Maine's fall foliage season is also a peak time to stay in Maine particularly on fall weekends, fall foliage tours bring visitors to see the spectrum of colors, and Maine is host to many fall festivals. So you are well advised to book your lodging in Maine for a fall getaway in advance. You may also want to consider touring the coast with stops at several coastal towns, staying at a different bed and breakfast or Inn each night, then head inland Maine to see more beautiful foliage in the Mountains and Lakes Region. Like the rest of Maine, the autumn foliage is worth beholding in the Moosehead/Highlands Region. Golfing and kayaking are two fantastic fall activities as your surroundings lend themselves well to vibrant pastels of fall foliage against the deep blue of the sea.

 

Fall is harvest time and Farmers Market throughout Maine offer vegetables at the peak of freshness. You're sure to find that perfect pumpkin for carving before Halloween. Maine's cuisine, with delicious fresh farm vegetables, fruit and seafood, is the perfect accompaniment to a fall foliage trip. What could possible taste better than clam chowder or a fresh steamed lobster and blueberry pie after a fall hike in Maine?

Fall is a good time to visit some of Maine's Haunted or Spirited Inns and Lighthouses
