Columbus Day weekend will bring 660,000 visitors to see waves of fall foliage.

An estimated 660,000 visitors are expected to come to New Hampshire to view the fall foliage over the Columbus Day period, 2.5 percent more than during 2014. Spending is projected to exceed $97 million, up about 3 percent from last year.

People come from all over the country and the world to see New Hampshire’s spectacular fall scenery. Scenic drives and outdoor recreation are two of the most important activities during the Columbus Day Weekend. Visiting farm stands, festivals, agricultural fairs, attractions, and friends and relatives are also important Columbus Day visitor activities. Shopping is also a popular activity during vacation trips to the state.

Visitors can plan their New Hampshire Fall Adventure with help from VisitNH.gov. The Vacation Inspiration website has a guide to help get the most out of fall, including scenic drives, places to pick your own, a go-to guide for antiquing, and much more.

Visitors are encouraged to share their New Hampshire fall foliage images with New Hampshire tourism on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, by using #nhfoliage.
