Connecticut Fall Activities - Girl and Dog in Leaves


Looking for Connecticut fall activities? There’s tons to do in the area. At Vail Buick GMC, we’re proud to serve the Bedford Hills, New York area—a city just a short drive away from Connecticut. New England is renowned for its beautiful leaves and crisp autumn winds, just a few reasons you should take a road trip with your family, friends, or significant other.

According to the Connecticut tourism website, one of the most popular things to do is simply watch the leaves change. Driving in a new Buick or GMC, you can follow the best foliage in New England. October is the perfect time to go, as the leaves start to fall off the branch in November. In addition to driving, you can hike trails in Connecticut state parks or boat down the Connecticut River. All three options give you a great vantage point of the leaves.

Next, go apple picking. Robert Frost is among many writers and poets who documented their experiences apple picking in New England, and Connecticut, in particular, has amazing apple cider, pies, and caramel apples. Plus, simply picking the apples off the trees is a relaxing way to spend an afternoon.

Finally, visit a haunted house. There are monster-filled corn mazes and ghost tours, as well as more family-friendly events. In particular, the Shelton’s Legends of Fear hayride is great for any thrill seeker.

These are just some of the many things to do this fall while you’re driving up to Connecticut.
