Welcome to Fall 2013 on the Peninsula

Now Autumn’s fire burns slowly along the woods; And day by day the dead leaves fall and melt.” —William Allingham

The gentle slide into crisp days and cool nights marks autumn’s arrival in our 10 towns. We’ll help you discover the new and how to return to the familiar. Against the backdrop of stunning foliage, explore and enjoy all the season has to offer.

What’s in the fall issue

Great scenic drives—A dry September helps fall leaves turn from yellow to gold to red all the way through October. We’ve hand-picked two driving routes that capture fall at its peak.

Take a hike—Close your eyes and point on any page of our hiking & walking trails guide—any one of them will likely offer an up-close experience of nature in all its fall splendor.

From farm to table—Get the goods on finding fresh, local fare straight from its source—including beer and wine!

Halloween focus—The local goings-on, from parades to pumpkin carving.

Local connection—Our Restaurant Guide is a comprehensive listing of local eateries from simple to gourmet. Our Arts Guide does the same for local galleries.

Community Calendar —A day-by-day listing of what’s going on in our towns. Plus a tides, sun & moon almanac.
