SLIDE SHOW: The Top 25 Foliage Towns in New England
We chose 14 categories we felt best defined a great fall outing: color, scenery, vistas, water reflections, drives, hikes, culture, farmers market, orchards, parks, covered bridges, being away from crowds, shopping, food and lodging. We then gave a score from 1-5 for each. Using hard data, opinion and lots of travel time we have (for the first time!) gone out on a limb. Here are the best foliage towns in New England. (Note that because of ties there are only 13 final places.) Each town is worth a visit.
For the full story which explains the methodology used in selecting the towns, and what to do when you visit, order a PDF of Yankee's September/October 2010 issue in our online store.
