The 2009 fall foliage season will be here before you know it. Strange as it may seem to discuss this topic in the midst of an August heat wave, the reality is that this is the best time to start trip planning for this what many consider the best time of the New England season.

The foliage colors can be brilliant, there's a special chill in the air, and lots of small town attractions and "town common" events to get you in the spirit. Hotel rooms go quickly, so it's also paramount to have peace of mind early to know where you'll be staying -- or if a leisurely day trip is more appropriate, given the tough economy. For any travel preference, we have updated our New England Fall Foliage Travel Guide with additional vacation and travel ideas on the best New England scenic autumn vacation destinations and hotel getaways, colorful leaf peeping spots, driving tours, hikes, day trips, apple picking and apple cider recommendations. Like the rest of our site, the content is driven by the places we "locals" like to visit in our six-state region. Ultimately, these perspectives bring out the purity of New England, including the "hidden gems" that you might not know about.

As always we are looking to add to our guide and welcome your New England fall foliage feedback, ideas, and tips. Enjoy our New England Fall Foliage Travel Guide!
