The first day of fall has officially arrived, and we're so excited. Doesn't it feel like this year has flown by? We were thinking the same thing.

Fall is a favorite time of year for this writer for countless reasons. Not only is the foliage beautiful, but we can enjoy seasonal activities and treats like pumpkin beverages and baked goods, comfy sweaters, leaf peeping, apple picking, corn mazes, and more. Then of course, there's Halloween and all the fun things that come with it, like ghost stories, haunted houses, spooky movies, costumes, and trick-or-treating (or if you're past the trick-or-treating age, getting a free excuse to eat extra candy).

We could go on and on. Fall is a special time of year, and there's nothing quite like it in New England.

What about you? What are you looking forward to the most about the fall season? We decided to ask our readers and listeners on Facebook for their thoughts, and received several responses. So, let's see what autumn activities Granite Staters are most excited for.
