New England color mid to late October. Need a few hubs.

Jump to last reply

I've always wanted to go see the fall colors in New England but each year, we miss it for various reasons. This year, everyone is on board for a New England trip so I'm really excited to start planning.

We are hoping for a 2 week vacation (either Oct 10-25, or Oct 17-31). I have 2 children, ages 6 and 2. I've never been to any of the New England states so no worries about hitting repeat spots. We live in the San Francisco area so we have easy access to beautiful coastline. Our main interest is to see the fall colors of New England. Husband and I are both more laid back type. Prefers short kid-friendly hikes, staying in a place for a few days and do short day trips over driving from place to place each day.

I've heard that Vermont is beautiful but by Mid Oct, the colors might be pass peak. I think my 6 year old might enjoy Boston, especially the swan boats, since she really liked "the trumpet of the swam" by B.E. White.

I would really appreciate suggestions of a few towns/areas that we can use as hubs to stay a few nights while doing day trips.
