It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The sweet spice of cinnamon apple cider paired with a piece of pumpkin pie lingers all season as the leaves mold into the colors of autumn.

It can’t be argued that fall in New England is something everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. Yes, Florida is warm but do the palm trees transform into stalks of glistening golden yellow and bright ruby red come the end of September?  

Whether you are new to New England or need a little October inspiration, here are a few tips to help you make the most of the most colorful time of the year.  

Corn Mazes

Corn mazes sadly seem to be the most overlooked of the fall festivities. However, they are some of the most fun and versatile. With mazes all over New Hampshire and Massachusetts, you have the option to choose between many different sizes and designs. It’s a perfect activity to do with the kids.  

Haunted Hay Rides/ Houses  

Get a babysitter and gather the crew together for a night of laughs, screams, and fun. Haunted hayrides and haunted houses are a staple during spooky season. With indoor and outdoor options all over New England, you have a lot to choose from (we suggest bringing an extra pair of pants in case you get a little too scared).

Pumpkin Carving

If there was a sport for the fall season it would be pumpkin carving. Whether you decide to use freehand or get a stencil the end results are always unique (don’t forget to bake up the seeds for a yummy snack).

Apple Picking  

Ahhh, apple picking, the staple of the fall season. Nothing tastes better than the sweet juiciness of a fresh-picked apple. Many apple orchard locations also offer baked goods, petting zoos, and other activities so get the family together and enjoy the perfect fall outing.

From your friends at Artisan Electric; have a safe, sweet, and spooky fall season!
