Fall in New England is a beautiful time. The smell of apple pie and cider permeates through the air, whether you are in the city or in the country.
One of the best ways to experience foliage in the greater Boston area is to get in a car and drive. Even better? Here’s a list of driving tours already mapped out for you. You don’t need to drive too far from Suffolk to see vibrant reds, oranges and yellows. And if you’re in need of a car, visit this link for a list of affordable car rentals in Boston.
Another great way to experience the fall foliage is to go on a walk or hike and breathe in the fresh, crisp air. Lucky for us, there are plenty of places nearby that you could do so.
