Quaint colonial towns, picturesque coastal scenery and significant historic sites are only a few of the reasons why travelers flock to New England year after year. Fall foliage cruises are a great way to explore this region during the fall when the weather is nice and there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors.
On a fall foliage cruise you might retrace Paul Revere’s steps along the Freedom Trail in Boston, MA or mountain bike along the rugged coastline in Acadia National Park. Enjoy an authentic lobster bake with all the trimmings in Bar Harbor, ME or walk cobblestone streets lined with quaint shops and pubs in Portland, ME. While visiting Newport, RI, consider a scenic drive of 10-mile Ocean Drive or tour sprawling estates once owned by influential families such as the Vanderbilts, the Astors and the Belmonts.
And, of course, enjoy the amazing fall foliage. This annual phenomenon causes the leaves to change from the usual green color to stunning shades of red, yellow and gold.
