12 Fall Family Weekend Getaways in New England





Autumn is the prettiest time to visit New England. It is the time of pumpkin patches, corn mazes, apple picking, campfires, and beautiful fall foliage. There are also so many quaint towns to explore that are perfect for fall family vacations in New England. Since autumn is about three months long, I picked out 12 of my favorite New England weekend getaways.
Of course, with sports and back to school, getting away too often can be tricky. If you want to go apple picking, September is your month. And if you are looking for the peak color on the fall foliage, then most of New England hits its prime in October, right away Columbus Day weekend. Just keep in mind that the further north you go, the earlier the leaves turn. Once you move into November, it will start to get colder and grayer, so that is the time to visit Southern New England and pick destinations that also have indoor activities.

12 Fall Family Vacations in New England
Manchester, Vermont
Manchester, located in Southern Vermont, is only a four-hour drive from NYC and three hours from Boston. This quaint village offers a mix of cute shops and restaurants, combined with quality outlet shopping. Nearby, you can visit the Robert Todd Lincoln home of Hildene, climb Mt. Equinox (via foot or car), or head over to Bromley Ski Mountain for some outdoor adventure. We recently stayed at the Wilburton Inn (see my full review) and you could also try the Equinox Golf Resort & Spa or the new Kimpton In the village.
North Conway, New Hampshire
Located six hours from NYC and 2.5 hours from Boston, North Conway is a perfect destination for exploring the White Mountains of New Hampshire. You can hike, rock climb, take the harrowing drive up to the top of Mt. Washington (or enjoy the Cogwheel Train instead), take a dinner train, or visit one of the nearby ski resorts. You can even take an evening moose viewing tour (that?s still on my bucket list!) For indoor family fun, stay at the Red Jacket Mountain View Resort with its indoor Kahuna Laguna waterpark (see my full review), or for upscale luxury, stay at the Omni Mt. Washington Resort. For budget travelers, we enjoyed the new Residence Inn with its free breakfast buffet.
Portland, Maine
For foodies, Portland is my weekend getaway destination of choice. In addition to sampling lobster, oysters, and duckfat fries (see my suggestions on where to eat in Portland), it is fun to wander the cobblestoned streets of the Old Port. You can duck into shops, see what exhibit is on at the Science Center, or spend an afternoon enjoying the Portland Museum of Art. My favorite place to stay is the aptly themed Press Hotel (see my full review), but we have also had lovely stays at the new Hilton Garden Inn in the Old Port and the Courtyard Marriott (see my full review.)
Berkshires, Massachusetts
The Berkshires is a region in Western Massachusetts which includes the towns of Great Barrington, Lenox, and Lee. This artsy area is the summer home to the Boston Pops at Tang...
