My husband and I are looking forward to our anniversary weekend away from the kids in the Bristol area. I am VERY excited to FINALLY get to see NH colors. I have read some forums about foliage and it seems we have picked the most popular weekend to arrive. I cannot help that with my anniversary. We are looking for LOCAL eateries that are great and great places for a walk/hike for colors. I was really wanting to go to the white mountains, but it seems many have said that the driving will be terrible due to the influx of "leaf-peppers" like myself. The Kancamagus was my hopes, but I believe I will let that go after reading it is usually bumper to bumper this weekend. Any suggestions on good places for color near Bristol?
