Fall Foliage in Freeport, Maine is a wonderful thing!
Just sharing a couple of photos from this week at Winslow Park. The fall foliage in Freeport is at its peak this week. We had a little grumbling in August and September that the foliage would be a bust this year due to the drought. Well, Mother Nature pulled through just in time with some soaking rains in late September and wonderfully crisp days in October that led to the brilliant colors we’re seeing this week.
There are still some trees that haven’t turned yet so I’m looking at another few days next week where you’ll find riotous color on every Main Street and back road in the area.
If you’re headed this way for foliage, we’ll be happy to show you our favorite drives and let you know which lobster shacks are still open. We generally tell you that the week after Columbus Day is the best one for fall foliage along the coast in Maine. Sometimes it’s a little later, sometimes a little earlier. This year it’s right on time.
There’s nothing to beat a fall foliage trip to Maine – deep blue skies and ocean; vivid red, yellow and orange maples; the black-green of the pines. It’s time for a road trip! See you soon.
