The Amazing Northeast Fall Foliage
by The Coach Team
There are four seasons, and they all have their special attributes. There is one season in the Northeast that has a special moment – one that only lasts a brief time.
Fall has a burst of color. The trees go through an amazing transformation from summer green to winter starkness. It’s like a rainbow on the ground. And every year is a bit different!
It’s an inspiring time. The weather still has the warm daytime sun. The brightness and the shadows are pronounced. There is a slight chill in the air at night, a precursor to the onset of the winter months.
Take a Bus Trip to The Best Fall Colors
If you have a senior group, or a club, or a school – or perhaps just a bunch of like-minded friends – why not make this fall special? A luxurious charter bus trip to the heart of the fall foliage is the perfect way to create a real-time experience that will become a great, indelible memory.
Let’s explore some possible destinations.
Hudson Valley, NY
Upstate NY is unique with rolling hills and mountains. The Catskills reflect the sunlight through the changing colors. It is a stunning sight. There are a number of wonderful destinations. Kingston, NY is on the upswing, and can be a great home base for excursions around the area.
Woodstock is an historic artist colony with lots of shops, cafes and restaurants, and the smaller hamlets like Phoenicia are quaint destinations nestled within the awe-inspiring mountains.
Maple trees are often the most spectacular in the fall, and Vermont has more of them than any other state! Vermont has a website that gives updated reports on how the colors are progressing: http://www.vermont.com/foliage.cfm
Stowe is a two century old village, and there are area farmer’s markets, concerts, car shows, and even a fly fishing show.
The Berkshires, MA
The Berkshires of Western Massachusetts has a Fall Foliage Festival & Parade on the first weekend of October. It is a great yearly event!
Within rolling hills, situated between the major cities on Boston and New York, there is an abundance of small town charm, along with so many activities, shopping, restaurants, and a large amount of art and culture.
You can embark on a hike or – if you desire a less strenuous path – ride the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway. You can also have your charter bus navigate along the Kancamagus Highway, almost 40 miles of the most spectacular fall views.
There are state parks and moose tours, wineries and Santa’s Village.
