Now that your interstate movers have left and you're getting settled into your new home in New England, you may be ready to experience your first Northeast autumn. If you're looking for the best places to see fall foliage, check out these great spots.
Kent, Connecticut. Vermont and New Hampshire are good states as far as foliage is concerned, but USA Today points out that Kent is the number one place to be if you're looking for the finer details to make the New England experience really authentic. Covered bridges, farm stands, waterfalls and antique stores dot the landscape in between the gorgeous trees, so you may just feel like you're back in the 1700’s.
Mason, New Hampshire. Parker's Maple Barn, which is touted as Uncle Sam's boyhood home, is a wonderful spot to spend a weekend afternoon checking out the fabulous fall colors and engaging in a few old-fashioned activities. You can pick your own apples and taste some of the delicious fare from the restaurant, which features an all-day breakfast menu with plenty of maple syrup options to give you a taste of the area's natural flavors.
Camden, Maine. This seaside town on the mid-coast of Maine was ranked the third best foliage town in 2011 according to a poll by Yankee magazine's fall foliage website. Its quaint village and ocean views look spectacular against a backdrop of gold, yellow, green, orange and red.
