Hotel for Fall Activities in Ogunquit, ME

It almost goes without saying that fall’s an absolutely splendiferous time to escape to the coast of Southern Maine.

“Almost goes without saying” on account Ogunquit and its surrounding region lie nestled within arguably the world’s greatest swath of fall foliage: the northeastern U.S. and adjoining Canada. Leaf-peeping of the very finest kind is yours to enjoy with a home base in the Beautiful Place by the Sea!

Tack on all manner of other seasonal activities, plus a bevy of fall festivals, and you’re spoiled for choices when it comes to things to do and see on an autumn getaway with!

Fall Colors In & Around Ogunquit, Maine

Our wide assortment of hardwood trees and shrubs (plus those needle-shedding conifers, tamaracks) ensures quite the spectacular fall-foliage show. And with the diversity of landscapes at your fingertips with accommodations, from inland highlands and hills to coastal inlets, that show tends to unfurl over a sumptuously extended period.

Our fall colors in Ogunquit usually peak roughly mid- to late October, but there’s typically plenty of leaf-peeping razzle-dazzle on either side of that window. From the town’s streets and walking paths to day-tripping destinations such as Mount Agamenticus and Ferry Beach State Park (with a unique northern outpost of blackgum trees, which turn a smoldering red in autumn), you’ve got plenty of chances to take in the spectacle.

Fall Festivals

The autumn calendar is an absolutely studded one here in Southern Maine! Of course, there’s the Beautiful Place by the Sea’s very own OgunquitFest Weekend, the 20th edition of which takes place October 20th through the 22nd with the usual smorgasbord of activities and entertainment: from costumed dog parades to craft fairs and classic car shows.

Within easy reach, meanwhile, you’ve also got not one but two similarly long-running fall celebrations to enjoy in nearby towns on Saturday, October 14th. There’s Kennebunk HarvestFest put on by the Kennebunk Parks & Recreation Department, which features all manner of live music, kids activities, costume parades, and other fun. The same day, the York Region Chamber of Commerce will be presenting the 38th annual York Harvestfest, with live entertainment, craft and food vendors, face painting, ring toss, and much more on York Beach.

Other Activities

From apple-picking and pumpkin-patch-hopping to bike rides in the note-perfect sunny and crisp fall weather, there are just about endless ways to embrace fall in Southern Maine. The sky’s the limit!
