Boots. Sweaters. Pumpkin Picking. Good bye summer, hello autumn.

Boston is an amazing city to visit during any season – especially during the fall! If not for the foliage, a trip to Boston in the fall, can be planned around the events and seasonal activities which happen for only short times throughout the season. As event planners we understand the importance of timing – it is really everything. The old saying is especially true when it comes to the following activities in New England so take note of dates so you don't miss out!

Foliage is a spectacular sight – while the pictures are gorgeous, taking in the vibrant colors that are portrayed in New England in autumn in person is breathtaking. Come visit Boston and explore the Emerald Necklace. This 1,100 chain of nine parks include the Boston Commons (shown above), Public Garden, Jamaica Pond, and more. Best time to come? This will vary each year but typically mid-October is best for Boston. The first few weeks of October are best for New Hampshire and Maine.

On February 16, 1818 a group of farmers met and created the idea of a fair "to promote and improve the agricultural interests of farmers."

Over the last 100 years, this idea has grown into the annual tradition known as the "Topsfield Fair." Ample food options provide options for everyone. Some of the most popular include: apple pie, cinnamon rolls, and fried Oreos. Attractions are agriculturally inspired and eclectic including the giant pumpkin weigh-off, sheep show (obstacle course), monster truck pit party, oxen pulling, and a handful of country shows.

Looking to catch the fair? This year's fair will take place from September 30th – October 10th in Topsfield, MA.

Smolak Farms in North Andover has events all year long but their fall activities are the best! They offer apple picking, hayrides, and a corn maze! We've heard it said that it's not officially fall until their fresh cider donuts are on the shelves! There are lots of other local farms in Massachusetts to explore – we recommend Ward's Berry Farm in Sharon as well. They have an adorable petting zoo, pony ride and berry picking!

Our personal fav is the wine tasting at Nashoba Valley Winery. No reservation required… yet if you are going as a group you may not taste together without one. We always recommend planning ahead! Tours of the winery are available as well on a first come, first serve basis. Enjoy!

Visiting Boston anytime is wonderful. Yet, a trip well timed is like ice cream on your apple pie… not required but always a great addition!
