Let The Fall Festivities on the Seacoast Begin: Pick Your Favorite!


Fall Festivities

There are many different reasons people love fall, but I think we can all agree on at least one thing–fall in the Seacoast  is the best! The crisp air, the smell of fresh apples, and the color of the leaves make pop. Oh my, the color that is around is nothing short of fabulous! So many people, from far away, come to visit us during this season. So, after peeping at the leaves, what else can you do?

Here are some of the fun fall things to do in the Seacoast and beyond:

Apple Picking – Yum! This is truly my favorite part of fall. Hot cider, along with its partner…the cider doughnut! There are so many places to pick apples around the Seacoast. Many of these farms/orchards host hayrides, farm animals, pumpkin picking, and other activities. 

Corn Mazes – Honestly, I have never tried to solve one before. This is the year to change that, as my five-year-old twins are ready for the adventure, as well. Check these out:

Fairs – There are still a couple of fairs to visit through the fall. Enjoy that fried dough (and fried everything else) before it is gone!

Halloween – Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate (second only to Christmas, the day my twins were born). There are just so many fun things to do. I love seeing all the great costumes; lots of time and originality go into some. Here are some fun events for you to try:

  • Charmingfare Farm – Candia – This farm runs haunted hayrides, and also hosts a handful of dates for a trick-or-treating, which looks too fun to miss.
  • Demeritt Hill Farm – Lee – Known for its Haunted Overload attraction, this is the place to be for spookiness! Demeritt Hill won for the scariest haunted attraction in 2014 on the ABC show, “The Great Halloween Fright Fight.”
  • Strawbery Banke – Portsmouth — Check out  a great family-friendly event at the end of October (28 and 29) called “Ghosts on the Banke.”

Other fall activities – Here a few other activities that are super fun for the family:

Hello, I’m Cristy! I am a mom to three ah-mazing girls. Not sure quite how it happened, but my oldest is graduating high school! My other two girls are separated by two hours and 22 minutes. Yes, you read that right! They are my Christmas night babies, who will be starting kindergarten in the fall. I have a wonderful husband who has put up with me for over 12 years now. I was born in Western NY and moved around many times. I have always said that my mom didn’t spring clean — we just moved. I am so excited to say that after 11 years away, I am back to my Seacoast roots again in Exeter. I am also a habitual chatterbox, lover of the 80’s (and all things 603, of course), and completely full of quirkiness. I am excited to be a part of the blogging world and can’t wait to get to know you all!
