Venues to Fall for This Autumn

Venues to Fall for This Autumn

There’s a time and a season for these eight venues—and that’s without a doubt autumn. When summer comes to an end, these properties really come to life with many of the best attributes that are unique to this time of year.

These picks are located along the East Coast, where the foliage is unlike any other spot in the U.S. With trees of every shape and size, just driving into these areas is a special experience where you can witness changing leaves in a rainbow of colors. The universities in this list also really flourish in autumn when a new school year starts and the campus is abuzz with inspired learning environments, not to mention some football!

The University of Massachusetts in Lowell is just minutes away from Lowell National Park where nature is on full display in the fall. Onsite there are also venues such as the Allen House that offers an incredible view of the Merrimack River. While the campus doesn’t have a football stadium it does have a fully renovated ice arena, the Tsongas Center, with plenty of space for large event buyouts as well as intimate club spaces with private bars to craft signature pumpkin spice cocktails.

Essex Woods, located on Cape Ann just 45 minutes from downtown Boston and 30 minutes from southern New Hampshire, is a stunning retreat with opportunities for social, wellness, team-building, educational, and corporate events in cozy corners. It sits amongst 16 acres of white pines and oaks and is surrounded by 250 acres of conservation land that are prime viewing grounds in the fall.
