The Best Spots to See Fall Foliage Across New England

Every year, millions of people flock to New England during this time of the year to see the fall foliage. Mother nature puts on an incredible show in this region, with the colors of leaves  changing into a mix of burnt orange, red, yellow, and brown. 

But there is so much more about this picturesque corner of the world during fall. The cooler temperatures, (or call it the sweater weather), waking up to the crisp mornings with a pumpkin spice latte and a freshly baked apple cider donut, cozy evenings in front of a crackling fire, apple picking, pumpkin patches, the beautiful homes with their porches lovely decorated in autumn decor… Everything is magical. New England offers the best backdrop to fall enthusiasts. While it is practically impossible to go wrong with any small New England town, here are our top 10 favorites, from Connecticut to Maine.

Connecticut

While it is the third smallest state in America, Connecticut is the fourth most densely populated. Its proximity to New York City makes it feel like a Big Apple suburb while maintaining its New England flavor, which makes it a perfect place for those who love both city life and a small-town vibe.

Fall in the Nutmeg State is beautiful, and it comes later in the season. The best time to check out the fall foliage in most of Connecticut is late October through the first week of November. 

One of the best places to visit in CT is the quaint coastal town of Old Lyme. Its larger-than-life trees make it a top spot for foliage fans. 

Kent, CT

If you wanna go for a good hike while exploring the fall colors, Kent offers some of the best hiking trails through Kent Fall State Park or the nearby Macedonia Brook State Park. 

Rhode Island

It may be the smallest state in the country, but every square mile of Rhode Island offers a beautiful sight to take in.

Providence, the capital city of Rhode Island, is the perfect spot for a scenic stroll through Roger Williams Park. Bristol, a favorite among architecture buffs, has a lot of charm, especially during fall. Stroll through Colt State Park and enjoy some of the best foliage. No matter the season, Newport never disappoints. If you’re a Halloween fan. The Newport Mansions offers some spooktacular Halloween shows.

Massachusetts

Boston

If you’re not into small towns, try Boston for a city getaway. It’s still New England, so leaf peepers will have plenty of choices, including Boston Common along the Charles River Esplanade, all the way to Back Bay Fens, North End, and Beacon Hill. You should also check out Arnold Arboretum at Harvard, the oldest public arboretum in North America. 

Boston, MA. By Shannon M. Shipman

According to Boston.gov, the city reaches its best colors around Halloween.

If you love the spooky festivities of Halloween, Salem is your best destination in MA, thanks to the 90s hit Hocus Pocus. If you want to stay by the sea, the charm of Cape Cod small towns and villages persevere passed the summer, making its idyllic towns a fantastic fall destination.

New Hampshire is a FALL Wonderland. Mount Washington includes the picturesques towns of North Conway, Berlin and Gorham, surrounded by high mountain ranges with perfect vistas. Many seasonal activities for fall and opportunities to see the fall foliage, one of the most exciting being Conway Scenic Railroad. The railroad has been operating since the 1800s. Tickets run for $25 for an hour of scenic views through the Mount Washington Valley and Crawford Notch.

While in New Hampshire, you have to visit some of the breweries, including the Moat Mountain Brewing Company in North Conway, which also has a great restaurant and smokehouse. You can stay at the Red Elephant Inn Bed & Breakfast. While you’re still in the area, check out the Sherman Farm, a family business run by 3 generations. Located in Central Conway, they sell lots of their own goodies. You can check out the corn maze, and sample ice cream from the Barnyard Scoop.

Grafton, Vermont is a postcard-perfect village to enjoy the change of season. Grafton is a 40–60-minute drive from an airport with plenty of museums and art collections. The Jud Hartmann Gallery located on Main Street features bronze depictions of Native Americans. The attention to detail is quite stunning.

Another point of interest would be Grafton Village Cheese, where you may see the process of cheese being made. TAll products come from their local dairy cows. The Garden Market and The Country Girl Diner provide plenty of delicious lunch and dinner options. Rowell’s Inn, located in Andover, surrounded by mountains, is lovely.

Rangeley, Maine

An hour from the Canadian border and west of New Hampshire is Rangeley, Maine. An idyllic small town with 1,200 full-time residents during the winter months opens up to the well-seasoned traveler in the warmer seasons, doubling the town’s population between June and November. New England is fabulous in any season. But fall is undoubtedly one of the best.

The closest airport is a 3-hour drive from town, but it’s worth the trouble. Accommodations can be found in many spots in Rangeley. One of those is The Loon Lodge. It provides the experience on the lake; it also features a restaurant where you can enjoy seafood, steak, and burger dishes. You can have a cocktail on the patio or enjoy the amenities provided in this beautiful mountain lodge.

If picking apples is your favorite fall activity, then you can head over to Ricker Hill Orchards located in Turner, Maine, which is about an hour’s drive. This is also an opportunity to view the most glorious colors of the fall. At the orchards, you can pick apples, tour the apple/cider plants, and check out the country store.

The end of September to early October is the best for apple picking and leaf-peeping! On Saturday, October 2nd, Rangeley will be hosting the 29th annual Apple Harvest Festival at the Episcopal Church on Main St. A “Lumberjack” breakfast will be served, children’s activities, apple pressing, chainsaw demos, and vendors will also be featured.
