38 Breathtaking Examples of Fall in New England ...


Fall in New England is something you have to see to believe. I know you've probably heard about it more times than you care to, and listening to locals and frequent visitors go on and on about it may get tiring. As a Massachusetts transplant, however, let me tell you that it's everything you hear about and more. In fact, fall in New England is one of the reasons I know I want to live here the rest of my life. Photos of a New England autumn don't look real. You'd swear they'd all been photoshopped, until you have the opportunity to see them up close. I hope that some day you all get to visit one of the New England states, at least, but until then, let me show you a little bit of this glorious season.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Autumn in Vermont is a sight to behold. The rolling hills and valleys are blanketed in a gorgeous array of colors - from bright oranges and yellows to deep reds and purples. The trees are alive with the sound of birds singing and the crisp, cool air is scented with the smell of fallen leaves.

The winding country roads of Vermont are perfect for a scenic drive or a leisurely bike ride. The scenery is breathtaking and the views of the surrounding countryside are spectacular. There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities like hiking, camping, and fishing.

Vermont is also home to some of the best restaurants in the country. From cozy cafes to fine dining establishments, there is something to please all palates. The local farmers markets are a great way to get fresh, local produce and other food items.

When the leaves begin to change, the small towns of Vermont become even more charming. The streets are lined with quaint shops and art galleries, and the locals are always willing to share their stories and traditions.

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I live in Vancouver, Canada and I think Summer suits Vancouver best, only because it's usually very rainy the rest of the year. But if we happen to have a dry fall I love the colours and smells of Autumn.
