4 Rules for planning your fall foliage trip — 9 Comments

  1. No Details on Maine? Moose, Mountains, Foliage and State Scenic Byway to Greenville, Maine. Top foliage destination online survey, Top 10 USA Today Wildlife Viewing (moose)

    Looking forward to foliage in Maine 2016

    Thanks, Jeff


  2. I found your four rules extremely helpful for our trip this fall. Four of us ar
    e taking two weeks to drive from Chicago to enjoy as much of New England as we can.

  3. Jeff, Here is one river cruise in CT.
    This is the Blackstone one

    The train one looks great I would add, Silver Lake Railroad in 1381 Village Road Madison NH 03849. Nice ride in the White Mountains that is very reasonable

    In Vermont There is the Vermont Railway System that will usually hold excursions all over the state during fall foliage

  4. Another thing to suggest is to also let someone do the driving for them, Various tourist railroads in the states run leaf peeper tours during the Fall and provide a nice way to see the colors in a relaxed setting. Also river cruises on the Blackstone River in Mass/RI and the Connecticut River in Ct are great ways to see coastal foliage without the stress of driving.

  5. They would do better to fly into Hartford, Ct. That way they wouldn’t spend so much time trying to get through NYC, unless that is part of their plan. All your suggestions are great and right on.. My husband and I have been coming to New England almost every fall for about 20 years and there is still so many places I want to see. We usually try to go to Yankee Candle Store in MA and one of our favorite places to go also is Acadia National Park. We don’t always get to drive that far because of time, but if they have time it would be worth the drive. My best advice I would say is to get off the Interstate and hit the back roads. They will not be disappointed.

    • Thanks Joy, she’ll probably see it… I would have said go to Manchester NH and start there and wind their way south till they get to the airport of their choice. But maybe they want to see something specifically along the way…
