When to Go to New England

If you are looking to view the region’s famed fall foliage, travel to New England sometime between early September (for the most northern points of the region ) to late November (for the most southern ones). Autumn and fall are the best times to book a trip to New England as winters can be brutally cold, and summers are often uncomfortably hot and humid.
