The autumnal colors of the changing leaves around Niagara Falls are alone worth the visit, with the peak usually coming mid-to-late October. Hike through Niagara Falls State Park, the oldest state park in the nation, to see the fall foliage up close. At Becker Farms, you can not only pick your own apples and pumpkins, you can also enjoy hayrides and events such as the Pumpkin Fiesta. As much fun as it is to pick your own apples, sipping cider may be more your speed, so check out Donovan Orchards Estate Ciders for some of the best hard cider in New York. And throughout fall, the Niagara wineries have multiple events, such as the Harvest Festival, along with tastings, tours and dinners.
