The fall foliage in New England is such a fleeting thing so people want to know when is the best time and where the best colors can be found. By signing up for my blog updates, you can make decisions based on what is really happening here in New England.

I have links to each New England states fall foliage hotlines that you can check with as well as my reports from photographers that I know in the different areas.

If a event is happening that will affect the fall colors I will do my best to get this news out to you as quick as I can. Speaking of fall events I have a partner website that will update me with fall foliage events from around New England. So once September arrives you will start to see harvest/foliage festival/Halloween events begin to grace my page.

  1. Good morning jeff, I am foliage obsessed and unfortunately live in south Louisiana. I am planning a tiny four day trip September 29 through October 3 with my daughter who recently moved to Paramus New Jersey. It is our only window of travel. I am considering Acadia National Park but I’m wondering where you would send us at this tiny window for the best foliage. I accidentally already sent you this on my child’s Facebook page. I’m sure he won’t be happy with me and I hope you will answer me on this page thank you so much. Jeannie Oubre

    • Hi Jeannie, actually I would rather have questions on my articles rather than my pages. pages are static and if they get loaded up with comments they bog down. So when you get this if you have further you will have to read one of my current articles and ask a question there.

      But that said… For the 29 Sept to 3 Oct, you will want to be up in either northern Vermont (NEK other wise known as the North East Kingdom). Or Northern White Mountains of New Hampshire. Or lastly North Western Maine near Greenville.
      Acadia will be very nice but being on the ocean will be turning a bit later unless the weather turns cooler earlier and I don’t think it will this year. So those are my suggestions.

  2. Jeff…love the information on here. Looking at flying into Niagra on 10/3 and then working our way east, leaving on 10/11. Is this a good time frame, given your experience? Also, what should be our key focus points? Open for suggestions on a city to fly back out of. Thanks

    • Ludlow in central VT on Route 100 should have foliage this fall…

      Oh! you mean when? depending on all the usual variables, I think 10 October give or take… there is some drought issues but with the river running through town and the ski resort right above the town it should be ok in that area. I don’t know specifics for the area though. So if you talk about lodging with persons there ask how dry it is and… are the leaves turning brown. (They are in my neighborhood) this year is going to be interesting. Do you remember my stated advice? Always have plans for lots of activities in case the colors fizzle… Hit my Twitter/Facebook pages and let me know and I can try to make recommendations but if you have other activities planned. Okemo should have hiking, biking, gondola rides to the top and as I remember one or two very nice restaurants downtown…
