Travel + Leisure's Sarah Spagnolo presents easy weekend getaways from Boston on the Weather Channel's Wake Up and Go.

FALL FOLIAGE: Quechee, Vermont
Not only is Vermont a top spot for leaf peeping, but it’s also home to a cozy hotel just a few miles from Simon Pearce’s glassblowing factory. WHERE TO STAY The Woodstock Inn & Resort is right on Quechee’s town square, with yoga, hiking trails, and the Red Rooster restaurant for classic New England clam chowder, crab cakes, and whipped sweet potatoes. PRICE $340 a night. BOOK NOW

Just 3.5 hours outside of Boston, this harbor-side town doesn’t close down in the wintertime, which means you can explore the coast without feeling like a castaway. WHERE TO STAY Camden Harbor Inn has two new renovated suites: now there are radiant floors and steam showers. The restaurant, Natalie’s, is also on the radar of New England foodies. PRICE $225 a night. BOOK NOW

FAMILY GETAWAY: Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts
In the fall, prices at some of America’s most beloved vacation spots drop, and Edgartown, one of the largest towns in Martha’s Vineyard, becomes an insider’s hideaway. Bring the kids: they’ll love to pedal around the destination’s wilderness trails. WHERE TO STAY Harbor View Hotel, an 1891 Cape Cod estate, has views of the historic lighthouse and easy access to the beach. PRICE $210 a night. BOOK NOW
