New England is the northeastern region of the United States of America comprising the states of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. This region is known for its glorious autumns and therefore what better place to travel to in October which is a peak autumn month.
Well firstly we must emphasize the perks of autumn travel. It’s the tail end of summer, which means enough daylight hours and sunshine but a nice chill in the air come morning and evenings. Chances of rain may increase but there are still plenty of gorgeous days with blue skies, dramatic clouds and a pleasant breeze. And most importantly the summer holiday crowds have left, hotel prices have dropped and the landscape is awash with glorious autumn foliage.
We recommend New England,USA because it’s not just known for its beautiful autumn foliage that has inspired many a poets and artists but it also offers travelers a rich colonial past, its beautiful Atlantic coastline and forested mountains. A road trip through the states of New England in October means you will see one of the most beautiful landscapes and scenery awash in shades of rust, gold, orange and red. For accommodation we offer beautiful cabins in the forests and mountains, cute county inns and charming bed and breakfasts. Getting here is easy as Boston is the biggest city and airport of the region and tends to have good international and domestic flight connectivity. Also note New York city even though not an official part of New England, is just a short 4 hr drive from Boston and can also be used as your fly in- fly out point.
The small towns of New England have a lot of charm and character and can almost feel like Europe. The tax free shopping outlets of New Hampshire along with its mountains are a huge draw. Rhode Island’s Newport district offers you a chance to glimpse the mansions of rich and famous and enjoy the sea side towns many Europe style restaurants and boutiques.
