Yes, October boasts some great festivals, but this month also provides some amazing scenery. Nature’s canvas transforms into a collage of colors this time of year, especially in New England. So if you’re looking for a way to kill time until Halloween, try a tour through the foliage.
The Boston bike tour takes a lovely route that’s a favorite among locals, and it’s the best way to see the green side of the city. From the shaded boulevard on Commonwealth Avenue to the popular shores of Jamaica Pond to the winding paths of the Arnold Arboretum, this chain of gardens, reserves, and open space displays some of the most colorful flora as the fall sets in.
New Yorkers looking for a small escape from the city can opt for a relaxing ride through the Hudson Valley.
If you choose the van trip (pictured above), you’ll be with a small, intimate group. What’s even better, you’ll get to visit the George Washington Bridge – “also known as the most beautiful bridge in the world.” Get ready to travel through luxuriant foliage suddenly awash in yellows, oranges, and reds.
You can also absorb the best autumn scenery from the water. The Hudson Valley River Cruise provides another easy way to sneak a peek at the vibrant red, orange and yellow bursts of leaf color as the trees go through their world-famous seasonal change.
Enjoy the panoramic wonder of spectacular colors as you sip on hot cider and light refreshments while cruising up the Hudson Valley River to the Palisades. There is also a available!
If you’re in or near New England this time of year, come be apart of the magic!
