The summer’s gone, but who cares? Fall’s cool, dry days and crisp nights make it a great time to get outside and enjoy life in New England, now in its most glorious season. Here are some ideas to get the most out of your autumn weekends…
Love it and leaf it. Don’t miss out on the fall foliage. Crowdsourcing lets you turn over a colorful leaf: About.com has a list of 10 fall foliage apps you can download for free. You can also plan your pilgrimage by mapping out your trip on Boston.com’s Fall Foliage Map.
Pumpkin patches and apple orchards. Take the family on a hayride, go apple or pumpkin picking, or, if you’re not freaked out anymore by those creepy children of the corn, get lost in a corn maze. Click here for locations in Massachusetts; or here for New Hampshire.
Boo on you… Stay here if you dare over Halloween weekend: The Boston Globe has an interesting list of 25 Haunted New England Inns. Be sure to watch The Shining before you turn in for the night. Sweet dreams!
Shhh… the crowds are gone from Cape Cod, making it an even more awesome place to visit. Festivals are in full swing, the famous Cape Cod Rail Trail beckons your bicycle, and P-town is still totally funky. What are you waiting for? For more ideas and to plan your trip, click here and here.
Get your cah and head to the spa. Go on, you’re worth it: book a luxurious spa weekend away from it all. The Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa in Whitefield, New Hampshire gets rave reviews on TripAdvisor.com. So do Canyon Ranch and the Blantyre, both in Lenox, Massachusetts.
Headquartered in Boston, Plymouth Rock Assurance Corporation provides auto insurance to personal and commercial auto insurance customers in Massachusetts and Connecticut. Plymouth Rock is a member of The Plymouth Rock Group of Companies, which together write and manage over $1 billion in auto and homeowners insurance throughout the northeast.
