Columbus Day Weekend Guide: New England

I can hardly believe it, but it’s almost here – Columbus Day Weekend.  A long weekend for most, it’s prime time to get out of your city and explore all the countryside has to offer at this time of year. (Not to mention enjoy the ample photo ops that present themselves. Think: you in a cozy sweater, jewel-toned cords tucked into your favorite riding boots, red and orange leaves as the backdrop.) If you’re in the New England area, that means hitting the road for some prime leaf-peeping, apple cider-drinking, and more.

Unsure of where to start? Here are a few weekend suggestions in New England – and beyond:

1) Head out to the Berkshires and check into a sleepy bed & breakfast like the Brook Farm Inn in Lenox, MA, which starts each morning with apple French toast.

2) Take a drive to Maine for a foliage cruise. This guide shows you the best places to peep the leaves.

3) Visit a pumpkin patch or go for a hayride. At Smolak Farms in Andover, MA you can even grab a pumpkin flavored ice cream on your way out!

4) Have a picnic in New Hampshire’s White Mountains – complete with homemade warm apple cider and cinnamon donuts. No mountains near you? Try it at a local park.
