The most dramatic leaf-peeping in Rhode Island is found in the mostly rural areas of rolling hillsides and dense forests, interrupted by country stores, pumpkin patches and orchards. Be surrounded by overwhelming fall foliage at the corn maze at Salisbury Farm in Johnston, the first maze of its kind in New England. The Corn Maze at Salisbury Farm has challenged peoples’ memories, teamwork, and sense of direction for more than 15 years. Thousands of people entered the maze last year, most of them got out.
For the ultimate fall foliage thrill, why not fly 225 feet above ground level through the foliage and up and over a carpet of autumnal colours near Lincoln, New Hampshire. The Super SkyRider, Alpine Adventure’s ultimate zip tour, boasts an assault course of 18 zip lines and suspension bridges and travels at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour. Talk about breathtaking.
Board a vintage carriage on the Essex Steam Train & Riverboat for the ultimate Fall foliage tour of the unspoilt Connecticut River Valley. This 2.5 hour excursion travels through boldly hued countryside. Then, from the open decks of the Becky Thatcher River Boat, take in views of hills bursting with colour and a river engulfed in orange and red.
