Make The Hotel Concord your base to explore New Hampshire’s fall foliage

Summer days are starting to fade away, the air is becoming cooler and the trees in some parts of New Hampshire are already hinting that fall is on its way. The approaching foliage season is a great reason to get outside and experience New Hampshire’s colors. Set right in the middle of the state, Concord NH is the perfect fall foliage base, with great hikes, apple picking, parks and more, all within an easy drive. This fall, stay at The Hotel Concord and explore the Granite State’s vibrant show.

Located on Main Street and only 3 minutes away from Interstate 93, The Hotel Concord is offering a special deal for those who want to make the capital city their base to enjoy New Hampshire’s fall foliage season. The “Live Free and Leaf Peep” package includes an overnight stay in a luxurious upscale Four Diamond Boutique Hotel, a gift certificate to Gould Hill Orchard in Contoocook, late check out of 12 noon and specialty treats like Miss Prindable’s Candied Apple and pumpkin spiced coffee to make this a sweet foliage excursion.

The foliage season runs roughly from late-September to mid-October, and the Granite State offers many ways to experience this amazing time. Just 20 minutes away from Concord, Gould Hill Orchard has sweeping views over the New Hampshire mountains, and an amazing assortment of  traditional and new apple varieties. And the White Mountains, Upper Valley, Monadnock Region and Seacoast are all less than one hour away.

Take a cruise aboard M/S Mount Washington and see the breathtaking juxtaposition of the colorful leaves and the water. Or, take the train through the trees and see the view aboard the world-famous Mount Washington Cog Railway. Any foliage leaf peeping trip can be combined with a visit to one of the many state’s attractions, and there are enough activities to fill up a weekend.

And there is plenty to do in the city, too. In Concord, fall kicks off with the Capital Arts Fest, a weekend of exhibitions, performances and art on the street combined with great food and local beer. Between September 27th and 29th, the League of NH Craftsmen brings together artists and craftsmen from all over the state to Main Street in Concord to celebrate creativity. Every Saturday you can visit the Farmers Market and the Arts Market at Bicentennial Square, which goes on until the end of September. The forests around Concord are also great hiking spots and help avoid the crowds at the more popular New Hampshire mounts.

“Live Free and Leaf Peep” is priced at $299 for double occupancy and does not include tax. Every package offered at The Hotel Concord includes turn down service with robes, slippers, Astor chocolate, customizable music and lighting.
