It’s hard not to fall in love with fall in New England – the leaves are changing color, it’s comfortable sweater weather, and the holidays are around the corner. And while October is almost over (!) there’s still time enjoy the fall foliage before November rolls in.

Leaves are turning all over New England, but if you want to know where the most brilliant colors are bursting, check out this foliage map. You don’t need to travel northbound enjoy the show, there are plenty of opportunities here in Massachusetts and Connecticut to satisfy your hungry eyes.

For those in Massachusetts, consider a road trip along the Mohawk Trail (Rt. 2) this weekend. As you wind through the picturesque northern Berkshires, keep riding west on Rt. 2 and you’ll hit Shelburne Falls, a quaint village in the Deerfield River Valley featuring natural beauty, talented artisans and small shops. Be sure to walk over the Bridge of Flowers during your visit.

In Connecticut,  the Department of Environmental Protection recommends visiting Macedonia Brook State Park, Mohawk State Forest or Pachaug State Forest for some quality leaf peeping,.

And for you urbanites that prefer staying in the city this weekend, there are plenty of autumn and Halloween-themed festivities going on. Get your fall fixing’s at the Boston Public Market’s Pumpkinpalooza or dress your pet in the spookiest costume you can find for the Faneuil Hall Halloween Pet Parade!

Whether you’re chasing foliage, carving pumpkins or cozying up to a fire, we hope you can get out there and take advantage of another wonderful fall weekend in New England!
