How to Experience Autumn in New England

By Viator, June 2018

4 849 Reviews | Add your review

There's no better time to visit the northeastern corner of the United States than fall, when the trees burst with deep reds, golden oranges, and bright yellows. To help you experience this season's fiery colors and festive spirit, we've gathered our favorite fall activities in New England, all easily within reach of New York City.
 
To catch the fleeting display of colors, you can head out on a bike ride through Boston's historic North End, take a cruise to Bear Mountain from New York City, or board a scenic train ride to the Adirondack Mountains. And for an extra special treat, book a helicopter tour to see the brilliant colors from an aerial perspective.
 
While all the foliage is a feast for the eyes, New England offers opportunities to feast on food and drink as well. Experience Portland, Maine’s buzzing craft brewery scene, sample Vermont’s famous cheese and visit the many vineyards dotting the entire region.
 
For a spooky spin, get in the Halloween spirit in Salem, Massachusetts, just a short ride from Boston, and learn about the city's infamous 17th-century witch trials on a themed ghost tour. And if you’ll be in New England later in the season, head to New York City and reserve a cozy indoor spot to watch the classic Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
