See a peak foliage map for New England here:
Boston's fall foliage blazes across the city from late September through October - and often well into November. Although you can see lots of gorgeous leaves on New England fall foliage tours, you can also enjoy spectacular leaf color by touring around Boston on your own. Check out these spots to peep some local foliage...
#1: Mount Auburn Cemetery
With more than 5,000 trees representing 630 species, Mount Auburn Cemetery is one of the city's best spots to view Boston fall foliage. While Mount Auburn Cemetery is actually in Cambridge, just to the north of Boston, you can get there easily by T.
#2: Boston's Public Garden
Located in the heart of the city next to Boston Common, the Public Garden puts on a spectacular display of color throughout the fall months.
#3: The Esplanade
The tree-filled Boston Esplanade, the long linear park along the Charles River across from Beacon Hill and Back Bay, turns into a sea of gold and orange in October when Boston's fall foliage begins to reach its peak.
#4: Back Bay, Beacon Hill, & Bay Village
Spend 10 minutes walking randomly through any of these elegant neighborhoods and treat your eyes to a panorama of colorful leaves and varied textures.
#5: Back Bay Fens
Trees fill the gorgeous Back Bay Fens, a lush slice of nature along Muddy River that's part of the "Emerald Necklace" parks designed in the 1800s by Frederick Law Olmstead. You'll see some of the most brilliant foliage in Boston's famed Victory Gardens and Kelleher Rose Gardens.
#6: Arnold Arboretum
Where better to see a magnificent display of Boston fall foliage than the Arnold Arboretum, another jewel in Boston's Emerald Necklace. The Arboretum's collection of almost 5,000 different species put on a fiery display throughout most of the month of October.
#7: Memorial Drive (Cambridge)
Every Sunday from the last Sunday of April until the 2nd Sunday of November, Memorial Drive is closed to traffic between Western Avenue and Mount Auburn Street, and open to recreation! It a great place to peep foliage in October and early November.
