Talk to anyone and they’ll tell you the best time to go to New England is late September through to early October when the region’s foliage puts on its stunning display. However, with so many outdoor pursuits, summer is also an excellent choice. Cold winters usually bring snowfall, which, while attractive, sometimes escalate to storms.
