The air is getting crisper, the leaves are changing colors, and pumpkin spice everything is back! Fall is upon us and we couldn't be more excited for all the fun festivities there are to do around the town of Essex. Here are just a few of the many reasons why Essex is your one-stop destination this fall.

1.) Pumpkin & apple picking: These activities will never get old! Whether you're looking for the best-looking apples to make a cobbler or the perfect pumpkin to paint, these activities are your classic fall afternoon well spent.

2.) Antiquing: Get your antique on! From DIY projects to spicing up a room, you can have lots of fun browsing through unique antiques. Who knows, maybe you'll be the next Joanna Gaines! Click here for a list of the local antique shops!

3.) Fewer crowd: We all love spending time outdoors and at the beach but I think we can all agree that the summer crowds are insane. With the beautiful crisp fall weather and fewer tourists, Essex is the perfect destination to spend some quality time with family and friends without the crowds. Click here to head to a local beach!

4.) Cruise on Essex River Cruises: We saved the best for last! Our public cruises explore the salt marsh and navigate within a protected bay, the perfect way to see mother nature's beauty in the fall. Get your tickets today!

Say goodbye to summer and say hello to fall! Autumn is the best time to enjoy the nice weather before the New England winter hits. Why not spend it with friends and family in Essex, MA?
