New England fall outlook 11 Sept 2012 — 4 Comments

  1. A friend and I are coming to new England October 12th. I am sure we will see fall foliage. I am not really worried. We do not have a specific itenerary so I say we get a room wherever we decide to stop. My friend is worried we will not find rooms. We are not picky because we will spend the night, get up and go in the morning. What are your thoughts?

    • First you should read this article http://jeff-foliage.com/2011/12/06/resources-for-planning-fall-foliage-trips-pt1/ and the part 2 and then consider that since you are arriving after Columbus Day you may be ok. and maybe you’ll be able to find something each night. (no guarantees from me) but Fri, Sat,Sun is hard as that is when the most leaf peepers are on the road. Also the hotels/B&B’s sometimes want a 2 night stay minimum. (not all)
      It comes down to where you are looking to staying. If you got a reservation for the 12-14th then free lanced in on Monday through Thursday you should be ok. Remember! you may start looking at B&Bs but end up in a motel and in a smoking room… That happened to me once… So let the traveler beware…
      So can you do it and get away with it? I think you should be ok… BUT I would arrange for the first weekend ahead of time and then wing the rest of it… Also are you bringing a smart phone or pad to access the internet to look for reservations?

  2. i will be cruising from quebec to fl.the last of oct.will there be any fall coloer at that time

    • If FL is Florida then you’re going to pass right through (what I hope is) great foliage on your way to get there.
