Nowhere beats the beauty and romance of New England for autumn leaf peeping. Every year, from late September to mid-November, travelers flock to the region to take in the resplendent yellows, golds, deep reds, and oranges. Here is just a sampling of unique ways to see Mother Nature in all her glory.
Your journey north on the Vermonter begins in DC and runs through New York City to Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. Vermont is renowned for the longest ski season in the East. Its world-famous ski resorts include Killington, Mount Snow, Smugglers’ Notch, Stowe, Sugarbush and Stratton. Allow us to plan this rail adventure as part of your exploration of the Green State. Stroll through charming towns anchored by iconic colonial churches and comb the countryside for more than 100 covered bridges. Listen to the sound of music in Stowe, hike the Robert Frost Trail in Green Mountain National Forest and shop for local maple syrup and fresh Vermont cheddar at a country store.
Hike up Mount Battie in Camden Hills State Park. Bike through coastal communities, rolling green countryside and Rockport, the state’s most picturesque harbor. Arriving in the heart of seaside Rockland, stroll the streets and perhaps visit the Farnsworth Art Museum and its collection of 18th- and 19th-century American art. Continue biking to Owl’s Head lighthouse, dramatically perched on a cliff. Arrive at Mount Desert Island, home to Acadia National Park. Begin your exploration at Sieur de Monts Spring, featuring the Wild Gardens of Acadia. Hike up Emery Path, with its series of stunning granite staircases and views of Bar Harbor and the Porcupine Islands. Keep your heart pumping on the climb up Dorr Mountain. Get to know Bar Harbor, exploring its stunning coastline and original boutiques. Hop on your bike for smooth riding along Ocean Drive, with spectacular coastal vistas of Sand Beach’s sparkling waters, dramatic waves crashing through Thunder Hole and Otter Cliffs’ jagged headlands. Bike along rocky coastlines and through forests that surround beautiful Jordan and Bubble Ponds. For the most avid of cyclists, tackle the ascent up Cadillac Mountain.
