Fall is just around the Corner and Visitors will Follow, according to Fall Season Forecast

As summer winds down, New Hampshire tourism officials say they expect a robust fall travel season, with more than 3 million out-of-state, overnight visitors projected, who will spend more than $1.5 billion.

During an event this week at Hazelton Orchards in Chester, the New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism Development unveiled its fall marketing campaign, which highlights activities such as  hiking, leaf peeping, agritourism, dining and shopping.

“New Hampshire is the premier travel destination in the northeast all year round, but the vibrant colors of our tremendous foliage truly sets us apart during the fall travel season, drawing millions of people to all corners of the Granite State,” said Taylor Caswell, commissioner of the New Hampshire Department of Business and Economic Affairs. “The fall travel season is an incredible economic driver for our state and we are constantly working to maximize and expand visitation for the benefit of our partners and the people of New Hampshire.”

Gov. Chris Sununu, joined by Business and Economic Affairs Commissioner Taylor Caswell, left, and Department of Agriculture, Markets and Food Commissioner Shawn Jasper, kicked off what is expected to be a busy fall tourism season by picking the ceremonial first apple of autumn at Hazelton Orchards in Chester.

Representing about 25 percent total annual visitation, fall is New Hampshire’s second-largest travel season, behind summer.

Foliage, scenic drives and pick-your-own options dominate the fall season but historically fall is also popular for visiting attractions, college homecomings, fairs and festivals, shopping, and visiting friends and relatives. In addition, fall tends to draw the largest percentage of visitors from outside New England.
