Leaf-peeping – watching the colours change in Fall – is fast becoming a popular pastime. With some of our favorite destinations transformed by reds, russets and golds, we can see why. Here’s our top five.
The historic city of Boston is extra-lovely when the leaves are turning. The elegant Arnold Arboretum is the obvious choice for leaf-peeping, but we love the Boston Esplanade – a city-center riverside park – too. Looking for somewhere to stay? Check out Lantern Lane.
Fall in Hudson Valley is brief, but spectacular. The best place for striking scenery in this season is the sprawling Bear Mountain State Park, where you’ll find hiking and biking trails to suit all explorers. York Lake House is a great base.
On the other side of the world, the Cotswold hills are especially charming at this vibrant time of year. And a trip to Westonbirt Arboretum is well worth it – the Japanese maples turn gloriously scarlet. We’ve lots of beautiful countryside homes here, like Oldbury Barn and The Curved House.
