It’s hard to believe that it is already October, but the cooler weather and stunning foliage we’ve been experiencing at our Maine Bed and Breakfast says that it sure is! And while the daytime weather has been absolutely spectacular for exploring Southern Maine, the crisp evening air just begs for a fleece and some cuddling with your special someone. While that in itself is something to celebrate, I thought I would share some of my favorite things about the Fall foliage season!
- Ummm, it’s gorgeous! What more can you say about the incredible, almost technicolor hues that the trees are taking on?
Just make sure you’ve got plenty of space on your memory card and fully charged batteries, because you’re going to need it! But whether you’re planning on taking in the view by land or by sea (or some combination of the two), we’re happy to help you figure out the best spots to explore and catch the most vivid hues.
- Local produce – apples, pumpkins, squash – oh my! Not only are these fun fall items cropping up on the breakfast menu at our Maine Bed and Breakfast, but area restaurants are also incorporating them into their creations. Plus, pick-your-own farms are far from hard to find and anyone at the Maine Stay Inn would be happy to recommend their personal favorite! And bringing home some freshly picked apples to test out one of our recipes at home sounds like a great way to cap off a getaway!
- Hay rides! Can you get any more classically “New England” than a fall hay ride? Just imagine yourself in a fresh hay lined wagon with two horses clopping through the fallen leaves…. heavenly! Rockin’ Horse Stables is one of several places in the area that offers hayrides in Kennebunkport, and on your way to their farm you can drink in one of the prettiest foliage displays in the area!
