New England Foliage Report 16 Sept — 5 Comments

  1. We will be in Boston wanting to go to Vermont and New Hampshire in mid October 2016 (leaving Texas on Oct 14) for our first fall foliage trip. we were wondering what areas we would see the most foliage this year. I’m reading that the leaves are turning early this year and should stay in southern Vermont possibly Connecticut. we want to get the most out of this trip. We’re from steamy Houston and have a non existent fall season. We really can’t decide where we should go. Thank you to whoever can give us some good advice!!

    • This year we’re on a historically normal schedule and by 14 Oct I would expect you to want to be in Western Massachusetts. This way you can travel north into Vermont or south into western CT. Stockbridge MA is a great choice and was the home of Norman Rockwell. The Red Lion is probably all booked up but you may find some place near by. Check my thrifty lodging page to see what they show. I did a quick search and had to go out to 10 miles of Stockbridge and I saw prices between $278 down to $65 per night…
      I would also look at the Litchfield hills of Western CT with lots of pastoral views

  2. Thank you for the update. I will be leaving for Boston on Tuesday and spending the next 4 weeks traveling all around New England. I am happy to see the colors starting. I was worried I started my trip too early but looks spot on for moderate to peak color. Thanks again for all your hard work.
