Fall in Love with Fall at Adair
For many folks fall is the season they love best and for good reason - delightfully cooler air, warming soups and stews on the menu, the appearance of colorful mums and pumpkins on their front porch or doorsteps, pumpkin spice lattes and, in New Hampshire, the annual return of Mother Nature's autumn gift - an explosion of extravagantly-colored foliage bathing our hillsides and mountains.
Fall is a great time to visit Adair. Comfy accommodations, a warm drink or a cocktail by the fireplace and nourishing meals in our restaurant mean pampering after a daily excursion to see the leaves or participate in some other nearby activity.
Along with leaf-peeping excursions along our highways, byways and backroads here are a few items on the fall calendar to pique your interest to help you plan your stay at Adair:
- September 30: Dozens of artists will display their paintings and other artwork throughout the downtown area during the 54th Annual Littleton Arts Festival making it easy to browse and enjoy the artful ambiance the festival promotes. Other activities include an Antique Car Parade, demos at the League of NH Craftsmen gallery and Wildbloom Beer, the always delicious Pie Fest at the Community Center, downtown tours offered by the Littleton Historical Society, the Littleton Library book sale at the Opera House, and Oktoberfest at Shilling Beer. 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. More info: golittleton.com

The Rocks has wonderful views of the White Mountains so it's a great spot to get in some leaf peeping. 1 to 4 p.m. More info: bethlehemnh.org
