The Best of New England in the Fall

All the colours of New England in the autumn

Autumn is the ideal time of year to visit New England. The air is crisp and cool, there’s pumpkin pie and apple cider in abundance, and the glorious fall foliage decorates the region in russet, ochre and gold.

Travelling through six states, we’ll take you to quaint mountain villages, college towns and coastal resorts. There are postcard-worthy views at every turn, from historic lighthouses and steeple-topped churches, to wooden covered bridges and rows of classic clapboard houses.
