It's not too late to book a fall foliage trip in New England, though the longer you wait the more likely B&Bs and inns are to fill up.

Northern New England, including parts of Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire, generally hits peak foliage season in mid-October, though you can start to see the leaves change as early as September. The farther south you go, into Massachusetts, Rhode Island and the southern coast of Maine and New Hampshire, the later the colors change.

One of the most popular activities in the area during this time is to take a road trip through the red, orange, and yellow landscape. Each state has its own scenic drive, from the Mohawk Trail in Massachusetts to the White Mountains in New Hampshire. Along the way be sure to stop and take a sample the local harvest, take a hike for a colorful view, or stop by the various autumn festivals, which celebrate everything from Oktoberfest to oysters to arts and crafts.
