When to go

The obvious time to come to New England is during the Fall, when the trees form a palette of russets and golds that genuinely awes. The downside, though, is that this is when prices are highest, hotels are fully booked and all beauty spots throng with camera-toting ‘leaf chasers’. Spring and summer are balmy and beautiful, while winter is the time to bring your skis.
