Fall Foliage - White Mountains, NH - Badger Peabody & SmithAutumn is here, and the leaves are changing. It's an impressive sight anywhere, but in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, it's something people come to see from miles around. And if you're looking at Holderness homes for sale, then you're in a position to experience the spectacle personally. Here are five ways to see the changing leaves of the White Mountains.

  • Conway Scenic Railroad - 38 Norcross Circle, North Conway, NH 03860
    If you're looking for a relaxing journey through the foliage, Conway Scenic Railroad is the choice for you. Located near North Conway homes for sale, several different excursions are available. For fall foliage, your best option is the Rail Fan's Photo Excursion, a one-day trip in October that provides passengers with multiple opportunities to stop along the way and get pictures of the beautiful scenery.

  • Bretton Woods Canopy Tour - 99 Ski Area Rd., Bretton Woods, NH 03575
    There's no way to get closer to the foliage than this - zip lining down Mount Washington, with trees all around you. Located near Bretton homes for sale, the Bretton Woods Canopy Tour is a three-hour experience that takes you through 16 platforms in the trees. Descend 1,000 feet using nine zip lines, two sky bridges, and three rappels. The tour is open year-round, but the best views are in the fall, as the leaves are turning. It's an experience you won't soon forget.

  • Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway - 260 Tramway Dr., Franconia, NH 03580
    If zip lines are a little out of your comfort zone but soaring above the leaves still sounds fun, then Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway might be more your speed. Located near Franconia homes for sale, it takes you in a cable car to the top of Cannon Mountain—the highest lift-accessed point in New Hampshire. The views on the journey are beautiful, and the view from the summit is even more so—especially on the 360-degree observation deck. Once you reach the top, there are hiking paths, a cafe, and more. The tramway opens in late May and runs through mid-October, so there's plenty of opportunity in the fall months to see the changing leaves.

  • North Country Kayak - Dodge Hill Launch, Old Waterford Rd., Littleton, NH 03561
    If traveling by air isn't your thing, try a trip across the water. North Country Kayak is a calm journey down the river through the beautiful, changing leaves. Located near Littleton homes for sale, this is a good option for getting away from the tourists and enjoying the scenery in a more private setting. You can book a private or guided tour or simply rent a kayak and strike out on your own through Moore Reservoir.

  • DirtVentures ATV Rentals - 514 US-3, Lincoln, NH 03251
    If you're really adventurous, try renting an ATV and getting down and dirty driving through the White Mountains. Located near Lincoln homes for sale, DirtVentures rents off-road, all-terrain vehicles for a thrilling view of the foliage you won't soon forget. You can strike out on your own, but it's better to take a guided tour from their knowledgeable staff who know the area and can show you all the best views. And if you've never driven an ATV before, they're happy to teach you! This is an experience not to be missed.

The changing leaves are just the beginning of what Central New Hampshire has to offer. To learn more, or if you're ready to make New Hampshire your new home, contact us. Find your dream home with the help of our real estate agents.

As the days continue to grow shorter, the brilliant fall foliage has since faded and fallen. The first blanket of snow is still a few weeks away, but the white capped peaks at the higher elevations serve as a reminder that winter awaits. It is a quiet time in this part of New Hampshire, but that doesn't mean that there aren't numerous activities available for most everyone!

Ray Newton tells us more!

  ray newtonNovember can be an excellent time for a short day hike. Rattlesnake Mountain in Holderness is a favorite in the summer, but this time of year, you will miss the crowds and have the trail to yourself. It is a short, relatively easy hike, about an hour round trip. At the top, you will be rewarded with a spectacular southerly view across Squam Lake and beyond. This is the one hike in New Hampshire that has the greatest payoff for the least effort! Other great short, day hikes in the area are Plymouth Mountain in Plymouth and Stinson Mountain in Rumney. The Squam Lakes Natural Science Center in Holderness has ongoing events and educational programs throughout the year.  For a list of events, check the web site at: http://www.nhnature.org/ Plymouth State University in Plymouth offers a host of cultural and athletic events open to the public. The Karl Drerup Art Gallery, located right on campus is an excellent way to spend an autumn afternoon. Take in a theatrical performance or a concert at The Silver Center for the Arts. For more information on events at the University, visit their web site at: http://www.plymouth.edu/. [caption id="attachment_3302" align="alignleft" width="300"]the flying monkey The Flying Monkey in Plymouth NH[/caption] For dinner and a show, The Flying Monkey Movie House and Performance Center in Plymouth will be sure to provide a memorable night out.
