As you can see in the latest view outside my window and in the photo at left, which I shot last Friday, dramatic autumn scenes continue to unfold here in Connecticut, and late-season leaf peepers won't be disappointed.
If you're visiting the Northeast this weekend, some of your best bets for spying lingering fall color will be in New Hampshire's Merrimack Valley (where you can stay for $87 at the Courtyard Nashua), on Cape Cod and New York's Long Island and in Connecticut's shoreline towns. Consult my Leaf Alert guide for state-by-state foliage reports that will lead you to the best places to see late-season fall color. There are plenty of fun fall events happening in the Northeast this weekend, too, so don't sit at home. Colder temps and the Major League Baseball season finale remind us that winter will be here all too soon!
