Fall colors in New England

Northern New England's fall foliage is expected to be spectacular this year, unlike tourism revenues, which likely will remain muted as the economy slowly recovers.

Abundant rain during the summer should boost the vibrancy of the red, orange and gold foliage that attracts millions of visitors to
New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont each fall. Visit each state's home page for a link to a foliage tracker.

Tourism officials are not expecting an enormous amount of inbound visitors so many fall special packages and discounts are being offered in the region.

This is an excellent time for that great American road trip!
