Peep dazzling colors.
A kaleidoscope of color greets visitors to New England between September and November. Wind along country roads sheltered by a canopy of brilliantly colored leaves, joining other leaf peepers -- the nickname for those lured to New England by its famous fall foliage.
Tuck into inns & resorts.
Find comfort at the end of a day's journey in farmhouses, historic inns or stately mansions that have been transformed into hotels. Some of New England's unique accommodation options have been family-run for generations, offering a level of personal service hard to find elsewhere. Save up to 50%.
Slow down the pace.
New England's collection of towns and villages evokes a simpler time, inspiring even the most high-strung travelers to slow down. Enjoy colonial-era ambiance while strolling Newport, R.I. (left); antique shopping paradise in Litchfield, Conn.; tranquility among the mountains in Burlington, Vt.; and a spooky good time in Salem, Mass.
Savor lobster & more.
After a busy summer, the seaport communities of Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard offer fall visitors a quieter time to explore by land or sea. Sail a traditional schooner and keep an eye out for blue behemoths -- whale-watching season runs through October. Back on shore, feast on catches fresh from the ocean.
Explore Pilgrim life.
America's history is rooted in New England. Walk in the footsteps of Paul Revere on the Freedom Trail in Boston, a city where many New England journeys begin. Next, visit Plimoth Plantation in Massachusetts, a spot forever associated with Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving in 1621.
