Trip to New England end of October

Jump to last reply

We're trying to plan a long (adults only) weekend trip for our 10th anniversary, looking forward to some crisp air, beautiful historical locations, fall events, art, local culture, great food, beautiful fall atmosphere... mostly just some time alone to enjoy a new area.

We've been considering a few destinations -
Portland, ME (the "Grand Tasting on the Harbor" is that weekend, which looks really interesting)
Providence, RI
Boston/Salem
Newport

Having never been to any of these places, thought we'd look for some advice/suggestions as to what might be ideal considering our timing (the last weekend of October - 24th - 27th). We live in FL now, so fall foliage is a draw but I realize we'll be going up a little late & will probably miss the peak times.

Thanks in advance for any input on these or any other suggested destinations.
