How to Track the Best Fall Foliage in New England for 2017

The fine folks at Yankee Publishing have come up with an idea as brilliant as the fall colors in New England: a “real time” New England foliage map for 2017. As the foliage season evolves, the map will show areas in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont that are green, turning, moderate, peak, fading and gone.

With conveniences like this, it makes you wonder how we planned for fall foliage in New England before technology took hold. Kudos to Yankee for coming up with this map! We recommend checking in often to get the latest foliage updates. For great New England fall foliage stories, lists and resources, we recommend you check out the Yankee Foliage web site. While we have lots of great fall information on our blog, too, we feel it is important to foster a community of the “Best of New England travel” — that, is informing you of all the great publications and individual writers that do great jobs writing about the six-state region.

We “leave” you here with a splendid¬†fall foliage photo from last year from Williamstown, Mass. Happy fall travels!
