Planning a Fall New England Trip

#1 Post by Doug Uno » October 8th, 2020, 9:23 pm

My wife and I are planning a trip next year to see the Fall colors. So many questions, when is the best time to visit if we want to see the Fall colors in full bloom? Any recommendations on places to stay and restaurants to eat at? Any can’t miss B & B’s or air BnB?

Thanks in advance for your recommendations!

I can only speak for New York. I'd suggest heading to New England in the next week or so if you want to see peak colors. Parts of upstate NY are there.

Just came back from Manchester, VT. Foliage was beautiful.

Woodstock was a nice town, as was Dorset and the Merck farm in Rupert was a stunning landscape.

The food scene seemed so-so, at best, unfortunately.

Amazing foliage in Jackson, NH. Drive the Kancamangus Highway for gorgeous vistas with scenic overlooks.

Also planning fall trip next year. This will be our 3rd time.

Usually start in Portland Maine (can't turn down a good lobster) and drive up to NH and take the Kancamagus Highway ... then drive down to Woodstock Vermont. From Woodstock, we go to Killington and then go up Route 100 to Stowe and Smugglers Notch. We then drive into NY and go to Saranac Lake, Tupper Lake and Indian Lake.

As for best time/days to go ..... we usually go October 3rd through about the 10th. This year, I heard fall foliage was early but, in the past I have hit brilliant colors at the time previously mentioned.
