In a previouspost today we named some plum scenic drives for fall in Maine, Connecticut, and Vermont. We continue below with links to pages filled with scenic drive tours and maps in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.
Someone From Away asked us if he could cover five New England states on a four-day foliage tour. Uh…not! With VisitNewEngland.com, plan a drive that suits your tastes. Look at maps; check color reports; make lodging reservations early; pack layers of clothing and walking shoes. Most of all – think about the things you like most. Like vistas on Skyline Drive in southern Vermont. Or vineyard-hopping to taste wines across Connecticut.
Sweet weekend weather coming up for New England. See our favorite events below or browse our calendar for more.
October and the eerie beauty (without the gore) of Halloween are especially dazzling at Roger Williams Park & Zoo in Providence, RI, itself a gem of a Victorian city park from the days when the masters designed our public spaces. Map
Every season in New England has its eating traditions, and fall – harvest time -- is particularly rich. Think of the possibilities: apples and cider at fall festivals; wine and chocolate at vineyards; lobster rolls a seaside clam shacks; chocolate in dairy-rich Vermont; hearty baked beans at our classic roadside diners. Below, by state, are some of our favorite spots for you to indulge your taste buds this fall:
Portlanders: Stretch outdoors while you can! Every Thursday evening through November 2, you are welcome to join Ashley Flowers Yoga for based Twilight Yoga in lovely Deering Oaks Park. Watch the foliage turn from every angle. Classes ask only for a donation. Thursdays, Thursday, 5:45 - 6:45 p.m. [confession: this image is from a 1913 postcard that we can across, but the park is just as beautiful now as it was then!]
Let’s play! Dog owners, at home or while traveling, know it is good from the pooch to get him or her outside and romping with friends. Many dog parks welcome friendly canines – some parks even have their own websites! The only rule is: play nice. We can do that!
