Up here in the North Country, the foliage is about as spectacular as anyone can remember for years. We've had a rainy summer, contributing to healthy trees. The foliage is at peak right now in Northern New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine, and will continue to brighten in the southern parts of Maine, New Hampshire, and certainly in Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts as October continues.
This is the time to visit a New England B&B. Brilliant foliage promises not to disappoint. Welcoming innkeepers, with fire roaring and cider simmering in the pot will welcome visitors...well they may not all have cider simmering, but our studies show that 95% of innkeepers welcome guests with complimentary afternoon or evening refreshments.
Some hot spots for B&B foliage getaways include Mt Washington Valley, Sugar Hill, and Londonderry, NH, plus Woodstock, Stowe and Waitsfield, VT. Look for beautiful foliage on Cape Cod too, where you find hundreds of B&Bs too.
Photos here were taken in Mt Washington Valley, NH by my colleague Jesse Mosston. We hope this will be the year for your New England fall foliage getaway this year.
By the way, I paid $2.81 per gallon for gas in Rockland, Maine yesterday. The cost of gas has diminished by 35-cents just last week alone in Maine, and gas prices are going down throughout the country, so this is the time to jump in the car for a leaf peeping getaway!!
