Here Are The Best Times And Places To View Fall Foliage Around Boston

Fall is on its way and that means cider donuts, traces of pumpkin and cinnamon lingering on the air, and an explosion of colors as the trees turn gold, orange, and scarlet. This is always an impressive season in Boston and no matter how many autumns we’ve experienced here, the intense beauty still fills us with awe.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Of course, predictions aren’t infallible and the NewEngland.com leaf tracker anticipates prime leaf viewing on October 13, 2017 for the Boston area – a little later than the predictions from the Smoky Mountains tracker.

Still, if you’re planning a fall foliage drive, train ride, or hike, schedule it for the first two weeks of October to cover your bases. Assuming weather conditions continue to cooperate, this whole season should prove spectacular!
