New England by Train/Albany to Boston town to visit

Jump to last reply

Hi

I will be traveling from Albany to Boston by train at the end of September. New England sounds beautiful in the Fall and I would love to see one or two of the New England towns while I am in the U.S. I wondered if anyone had any recommendations for a town accessible by train? I will be in Boston for about a week in total, and while I would love to catch somewhere on the way to Boston, I don’t know whether this is possible. It is no doubt very subjective as to which towns are nicest but we are two girls in our late twenties who would like a nice relaxing couple of days, countryside or seaside in a nice scenic town, ideally with nice restaurants.

The train from Albany to Boston will allow us to visit the below: Are any worth a trip, even for a night?:

Pittsfield, MA
Springfield, MA
Worcester, MA
Framingham, MA

Also, any recommendations for a two/three day trip from Boston?

Any help much appreciated!
