5 Locations you must see by boat this autumn
While fall might make you think more of Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Halloween than being out on the water, there’s nothing more breathtaking than taking in the beautiful fall foliage. If you’re lucky enough to be in New England this fall, make sure to check out these waterfront destinations while the autumn leaves are changing colors
1. Lake Winnipesaukee
This New Hampshire lake is the quintessential New England dream spot for autumn. Beautiful views, gorgeous old trees, and the water is perfect for some calm boating. Pack your favorite sweater, some apple pie, and you’re good to go!
2. Lake Champlain
Surrounded by New England farms, the gorgeous lake (the sixth largest in the country!) offers so many places to cruise around in addition to islands you can visit by boat within the lake. Have a fantastic fall trip by visiting some of the local orchards for some apple cider and doughnuts along the way.
Bring your sweaters and scarves for this one! Autumn boating is perfect here: nestled in the heart of Maine, this lake is the largest body of water in the state and offers everything from cruising around to even fishing if you like. There’s many adorable log cabins and camping sites if you’d like to stay for several days, and the scenery is incredible, especially for autumn boating.
4. Lake Sunapee, New Hampshire
While many people are familiar with Lake Sunapee for swimming in the summer, they often don’t know it’s a well kept secret for autumn boating. This unspoiled piece of nature will make your jaw drop with its beautiful fall leaves. Plus, you should definitely check out the town of Sunapee–it looks like it’s straight out of the 1950s.
5. Lake Waramaug, Massachusetts
Say hello to a peaceful day. This lake is incredibly quiet and tranquil, allowing you to really soak in the beauty of the changing fall leaves. Autumn boating is all about relaxing and appreciating the changes of seasons.
