Autumn is a special time of year in Massachusetts. There are a variety of things to do outside before the sometimes-unforgiving New England Winter comes. Whether you’re looking for breathtaking views of Fall foliage, anything pumpkin or a special place to enjoy the Halloween holiday, Massachusetts has you covered!
Leaf peeping has become a staple in New England during the Fall. Whether you are hiking beautiful trails or just driving to your destination, enjoying the foliage is always a treat. The best time of the
season typically begins in mid-October. In Massachusetts, the Pioneer Valley and the Berkshires offer some of the more notable areas to view the Fall foliage. These areas will also lead you to some charming towns, quiet getaways, delicious restaurants and of course, nature!
Pumpkin Patches + Corn Mazes
Pumpkin patches are abundant in the Pioneer Valley. The farms are fun and usually have much more than just pumpkins. Other attractions usually include hayrides, corn mazes, petting zoos, kid-
friendly games, etc. Here are some nearby favorites:
Mike’s Maze - 25 S Main St., Sunderland MA.
McCray’s Farm - 55 Alvord St.,S Hadley MA.
Green River Farms - 2480 Green River Rd., Williamstown, MA
