New Hampshire is one of the best places in the world to witness the brilliant crimsons and golds of fall. To help visitors decide when to take a tour of the countryside, NewHampshire.com will publish weekly updates on how the fall colors are progressing during the fall foliage season.

When is the best time to see foliage in NH?

The foliage peaks at different times in different parts of the state. Generally, the best times to view the fall colors are near the end of September in the far north, the beginning of October in the White Mountain region, and the middle of October in the south.

The Seacoast Region was slightly ahead of its norm, which is that the region nearly always experiences peak foliage later than the rest of the state. It's catching up a bit now, with a slight pause in the action. There is no shortage of scenic drives in the region either. A ride to try is Route 101 to Route 108 North through Stratham to Route 33 to Greenland. From there, you can take Route 33 right into Portsmouth which a recommended stop.
