Fall Foliage Getaways

Autumn means fall foliage and leaf-peeping season. Get an eyeful of nature's painted canvas! Plan a fall foliage getaway, and while you're at it, see the countryside from a hot air balloon or on horseback. Afterwards, pay a visit to a pick-your-own patch or tour a local winery.

Peak fall foliage usually occurs October 1-14 throughout the northern New England States:
Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The foliage then works its way south mid- to late-October, for spectacular views in: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania.

Plan ahead and book your fall foliage vacation early so you'll get the peak color of the season.
