Things to do in fall
Driving around: Nothing beats the driving around autumn leaf-peeping. You can find spots of scenic fall beauty in every mile. Lake Waramaug, kent fall state park, stop for the overlook view at Gillette castle.
Hiking: If you love hiking, Connecticut offers you the most stunning views of new England just a hike away. Go for an easy hike in Talcott mountain and soak in the sweeping view of the city and nature or for moderate hikes, hike up to Castle Craig, or Case mountain wonder awaits you.
Fall is the best time to visit all those beautiful farms, find the shape and size of the pumpkin of your imagination and of course carve a pumpkin. I love to visit Fairweather farm and Bishop farm with my kids and always bring a pumpkin for my fall decor.
Get lost in the corn maze or take a hayride.
One of the favorite activities is the puzzle in the Corn maze and what a fine ride on a hayride.
As they say, Connecticut has the longest fall season in New England. You can spot a fascinating fall color from early October and goes till mid-November. Usually, the 3rd week and 4th week of October is the peak time however it depends on the weather conditions that year.
