Massachusetts Fall Foliage Tips
- Make reservations well in advance, especially if you plan to visit during the first two weekends of October.
- Plan to visit during midweek periods when traffic and crowds are at a minimum.
- Innkeepers will often require a minimum two-night or three-night stay during foliage season, especially on weekends.
- Expect to make an advance deposit to guaranty your lodging reservation, and be sure you understand the innkeeper’s policy on refunds for cancellations.
- Plan a multi-night stay in a hotel/motel, inn, or resort area with day trips to surrounding sites and attractions.
- Plan to visit local events that include fall foliage festivals, apple and harvest festivals, craft fairs, and antique shows.
- Bring warm clothing.
- Pick your driving routes ahead of time to ensure the most visibility. It can get very frustrating driving around in circles and not finding what you are looking for.
- Expect to wait in line at attractions and restaurants, especially on weekends and during peak times.
- Plan a walk, hike, or bike tour amid the vibrantly colored leaves. You can’t beat the smell in the air, especially when you find yourself in a grove of White Birches dappled with bright golden leaves!
