Fall Foliage in VT and NH

Which weekend would be better to visit VT and NH, OCt 4th or Oct 11th ???

So far what is the progress of the colors in Central VT and White Mountains area of NH?

Any inputs are appreciated.

How about checking www.yankeefoliage.com? Each state has a foliage hotline as well. The better weekend would be the one for which you can get overnight accomodations if you're planning to stay over.

Report from Central Vermont: Leaves are just beginning to change.
Concur with Margaret - Don't spend too much time deciding. Book accommodations yesterday!

Both times have their merits. This weekend isn't peak for foliage yet in Central Vt., but it also won't be as crowded. Don't know about New Hampshire.

Check the events that will be held in the areas you plan to visit and go by that. For example, a British comedy will be playing it's last weekend in Stowe Oct 4/5. In NH, Warner has a Fall Foliage Festival the following weekend. Columbus Day weekend will also be the last country fair in NH in Sandwich ... which is probably one of the most beautiful parts of NH. There is not much color yet, even in Stowe which seems really late. If you don't like traffic jams, it might be better to choose the 4th.

I think it's pretty rude to still have reservations for both weekends at this point in time. Next time cancel one a bit earlier so someone else can enjoy the area too. Or preferably, only make one. It's always beautiful even if you don't hit the very peak!

Yes, it's very rude to have double reservations and wait until the last minute to cancel. However, most places have very stiff cancellation policies. So, cancelling at this late date may result in penalties.

Double reservations are a significant part of the reason that the travel business is so screwed up.

Just back from Maine and the colors were just beginning to peak through. They'll be peaking on the weekend of the 11th for certain! If you're going on the 4th, enjoy the coast and beaches as the weather is still beautiful.
