Fall is pretty tough to beat when it comes to enjoying the great outdoors, especially in New England. Whether you’re out there hiking, biking, camping, boating, leaf-peeping, driving the region’s scenic roadways, exploring picturesque towns, or just plain kicking your feet up on the deck to keep track of the changing colors on your favorite tree out back, there is arguably no better time to be outside than the fall.
Along with its great beauty, however, the season requires a bit more planning to dial in comfort because you never know what Mother Nature will be throwing at you.
On any given day you could be confronted by blazing sun and temps in the 90s, cold blustery winds that bring tears to your eyes, overnights dipping into the 30s with morning frost, and even accumulated snow.
Being well-equipped can make the difference between having a magical vs. a miserable experience. The collection of gear below can help you keep a smile on your face no matter what confronts you in the great outdoors.
