The Lincoln-Woodstock Chamber of Commerce Encourages Autumn Adventurers to Explore Another Side of Foliage Tourism

While scenic drives are a great way to take in the fall foliage, there are many attractions in the Western White Mountains that offer a different take on foliage vacations.

...for those looking to add to their experience while in the area, we encourage you to park the car and explore the various attractions and activities that make our destination so unique.

The leaves are turning in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and while many are happy to take in the foliage with a scenic drive, the Lincoln Woodstock Chamber of Commerce is encouraging visitors to get out from behind the wheel and take in one of the new and exciting attractions the area has to offer. From “cornstalk critters” to apple wine, the basecamp of the White Mountains has something for all ages to experience this autumn.

New this year, the Hobo Railroad brings visitors the Harvest Time Express. Not only does this include a train ride through some of Lincoln-Woodstock’s beautiful terrain (with a complimentary sampling of NH made products), but visitors can take part in pumpkin bowling, the Hobo Harvest Farm Stand, the Great Hobo Pumpkin Patch, and explore the “Corn Stalk Critters”, created by Annalee Dolls of Meredith, NH which showcase “Scarecrows of the Silver Screen”.

Another great attraction that is offering a foliage schedule is Clark’s Trading Post. Many parents bringing their children to this iconic attraction will probably remember visiting when they were children. Fall is a time of nostalgia and Clark’s is the perfect attraction to begin a new fall tradition. The Trading Post is more than their trained bear shows (which is certainly enough of a reason to make this attraction part of your fall foliage visit). But they also feature a train ride with a cameo from The Wolfman, a tour of Merlin’s Mystical Mansion, and several museums.

Visitors and locals both agree that there is nothing that says autumn, than spending the day picking your own apples. Windy Ridge Orchard in Haverhill, NH has a large assortment of apples to pick, nature trails to walk, farm animals to pet, and a winery on site to sample and purchase delicious, local wines.

“We have nothing against a Sunday drive” said Lincoln Woodstock Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Alyssa Yolda, “in fact, there’s really no better way to take in the fall colors than from one of the higher vantage points along the scenic Kancamagus Highway. But for those looking to add to their experience while in the area, we encourage you to park the car and explore the various attractions and activities that make our destination so unique”. For the die hard “Leaf Peepers” who want to keep track of the foliage in the Western White Mountains, there is a Foliage Tracker App and Foliage Report which will keep people in the know about when the best time to visit the region is.

Autumn Adventurers can contact the Lincoln Woodstock Chamber of Commerce for more information on how your family can spend a foliage weekend in Lincoln-Woodstock.
