Many New Englanders will tell you that fall is their favorite season. From beautiful foliage to crisp weather to great outdoor activities to spooky Halloween fun, there’s plenty to love about autumn, especially in Newport! Read on to learn more about some of our favorite fall attractions.
Newport Ghost Tours offers guided, walking tours of the city and an inside look into all things haunted that live here. Festively costumed guides walk tour goers through the streets led by lanterns, telling the tales of those who lived – and perhaps still live – in the seafaring village.

Escobar Farm Corn Maze
There’s nothing like a challenging, exciting corn maze to get you in the fall spirit. The most popular maze in the area takes place annually at Escobar Farm in Portsmouth, covering eight acres and perfect for an afternoon of family fun.
Come October, Fort Adams turns into one spooky attraction: the Fortress of Nightmares. The underground tunnels transform into haunted tunnels, completely dark with scary sounds and lighting. Visitors can also explore a 3-D creepy section as well as one exploring the paranormal activity in the fort or strap on a laser tagger to battle through “zombies.”
Our favorite local farm in Middletown hosts some of the area’s best apple and pumpkin picking – both absolutely necessary for your fall bucket list! Choose from up to eight varieties of apples, including Macoun and McIntosh, available for picking through early October, while pumpkin picking is offered on the property until late October, giving everyone a chance to go find one of their favorite gourds.
