Though you may not be in a hurry to see the summer season come to a close, now's the time to start thinking fall if you're planning to join the thousands of "leaf peepers" who will descend on New England in the next few months for a glimpse of the blaze of foliage that is unparalleled anywhere in the world.
According to the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing, "from the last weekend in September through the Columbus Day weekend, Vermont has the highest rate of occupancy for any time of the year. More beds are available to travelers, too. Both summer and winter resorts are open, and in many communities, private homes offer bed & breakfast lodging."
The same is true for all of New England during this peak tourism time, so advance planning is critical. This New England Fall Lodgings Guide will provide you with expertly selected lodging suggestions for each of the six New England states--Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont--plus neighboring New York. Or, you may want to make use of one of these centralized New England lodging information directories on the Web:
