Our first travel choices to help you plan a fall vacation in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont

Fall might just be the best time to visit New England. The increasingly hot, humid summer weather takes a
back seat to day time temperatures in the 50s, 60s and 70s and nighttimes have that special chill in the air. The good weather provides the perfect climate for watching the leaves transform into brilliant colors, going apple picking, picking a pumpkin from a pumpkin patch, navigating a corn maze, having some apple cider or ice cream at a local farm stand, taking in a state, harvest or traditional fair, and embarking on long aimless, country drives where you can make your own special discoveries.

Here are some stories I have written to help you plan your New England fall day trip or vacation, coming from personal experience and institutional knowledge of the six state region...
