Folks from around the country and the world visit our fair states to get outside and catch a glimpse of the painted countryside. They come to hike the forest, visit farm stands and orchards, and take amazing drives by mountain notches, rural villages, lakeside reflections, and fabulous ocean vistas surrounded by autumnal color.

Explore New England in the fall with your family!Autumn in New England brings a season of change as hot summer nights are exchanged for crisp temperatures. School is back in session. Sport schedules start up again. Shorts and suits are replaced with cozy sweaters and jeans. We pick apples from local orchards and find pumpkins in a patch. Most of all we measure the change by the brilliant colors Mother Nature paints for us on winding country roads and forests lining the mountains and shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Touring the New England states during its finest hour will create amazing family memories and leave you breathless.”
