There’s no bad time of the year in New England, autumn, however, stands out in contrast to all other seasons. Autumn. For many decades people have traveled from all over the world to visit New England in the fall and marvel at the tremendously lush and colorful fall landscapes.

Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain.
— Henry David Thoreau

With its lush mixed forests consisting of several varieties of maple, oak, pine, spruce, and other slightly less common trees like beech, ash, and elm, New England boasts an artists palette of fall color. 

A visit to New England at the peak of fall foliage color is sure to amaze you with a dazzling display of scarlet maples, orange oaks, yellow aspens and birches all against the backdrop of evergreen pine trees and a deep, blue and clear October sky.

Fall foliage peaks in late September in northern, and late October in southern part of the region. 

So let’s start the countdown. September 3rd. Green leaves.
