Visit the Fall Colors of New England

The outrageous colors of the Autumn leaves in New England can almost hurt your eyes! It’s like you stepped right into a painting because it’s so gorgeous you can’t believe that it’s a reality. If you have not yet discovered this for yourself, plan a family vacation to New England this Fall and experience the colors for yourself.

New England is composed of six states: Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Connecticut. The professional leaf watchers say that “Peak Color” is hard to pin down exactly – that’s because when the leaves turn color depends on things such as the amount of sugar in the leaves, rain, and, of course, temperature. The coloring starts in the north, as temperatures begin to dip, and move south. So, you can pretty well figure that for New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine, peak can be from the last week of September to the first couple of weeks of October. Around Columbus Day is generally considered peak for Massachusetts and Connecticut.

Of course, there are no guarantees, so you may have to wait a day or three. If you rent a timeshare for a week, it’ll be easy to wait. And you’d be smart to have a few other things planned to do while you wait, and that’s easy, too! Try apple picking! Each state has a number of family-run orchards where you are invited to pick juicy, sweet apples right off of the tree! A number of them also offer hayrides, as well as apple cider, freshly baked apple goodies, and handmade crafts. Or take your pick of Fall Festivals. For example, there is the Fall Foliage Festival in Northeast Kingdom, Vermont, the Sunday River Fall Festival in Newry, Maine, and the Keene Pumpkin Festival in Keene, New Hampshire, just to mention a few.

The easiest, most economical, and really fun way of having a “leaf peeper” trip with the entire family is to rent a timeshare. There are many available through-out all six states in the New England area. A timeshare gives your family a home base from which day “road trips” are easy to take – to drive out into the countryside to immerse yourselves in autumn color, to travel across covered bridges, to attend the festivals and to gather pumpkins and apples. At the end of the day you can look forward to relaxing where there is enough space for the kids to run around, and then, of course, there’s the resort’s many amenities to enjoy. Many timeshares in New England also come with fireplaces, and all have fully-equipped kitchens for savings on meals. All of this for a price that is typically up to 50% that of hotel rates. Sharing New England’s autumn splendor with your youngsters is a memory-making experience not to be missed!
