There is more to living in the seacoast area of New Hampshire than beach combing, seafood festivals, building sandcastles, and working on your tan. In fact some say the fun really starts after Labor Day weekend when the summer tourists leave and fall settles in along the coast. It’s a beautiful and majestic time, one when full moons and sunsets bring out wonderful fall colors all along our beautiful coast. When quiet afternoons at the beach is shared with a handful of people or on horseback.
Apple Picking and Fall Harvest Celebrations
With that special season comes apple picking time and wonderful fall harvest events. There is nothing better than biting into a crisp local grown apple from a Honey Crisp to a McIntosh and all the apples in between. One of my favorite places to pick your own apples in the seacoast area is Applecrest Farm in Hampton Falls.
A Seacoast Way of Life
Applecrest is more than a pick your own apple orchard…it has become a way of life for many. From Strawberry and Peach Festivals to the very popular Fall Festival season starting the first weekend in September and running through the end of October. Applecrest hosts petting zoos, hayrides, pie eating contests, and even live music to entertain you. You can check out their full schedule on their website: applecrest.com/festival-schedule
If you’re looking for something fun to do in the seacoast area…why not take a walk on the beach and head over to Applecrest Orchard in Hampton Falls. Be prepared to be enchanted!
