If there was ever motivation to get out of Boston for a bit, it’s to see the fall foliage. New England is famous for the stunning hues of red, yellow, and orange that bathe its scenery every autumn. Though you can spot the change in the city, there’s something special about seeing a mountainside lit up with color. Get out of dodge to leaf-peep at these New England destinations. 


1) Lenox, MA

Distance: 130 miles from Downtown Boston

Details: The Berkshires has been a country getaway for Bostonians for over a century and there’s no better time to see it than in the fall. You’ll see the leaves in full foliage bloom while strolling through the scenic small town of Lenox, or you can hike the nearby Parsons Marsh Reserve for a more immersive experience.

Distance: 148 miles from Downtown Boston

Details: The Kancamagus Highway is the drive to view fall foliage. The 34.5-mile scenic drive has been a staple route for leaf peepers for decades. You’ll wind along the state and end up right in the heart of the White Mountains and the heart of foliage blooms. (Photo by @skibbleyd83)
