Within the last few days, I’ve noticed how quickly the leaves have started to change color. Just walking around our neighborhood means an amazing view of red, yellow, and green leaves. This week marks the shift to peak foliage in the northern most parts of New England, with colors rapidly popping here down in CT. With that  being said, a really fun (and social distance friendly) weekend activity is to take a drive, see some of the beautiful fall foliage and maybe explore a new area.

 

NewEngland.com has an entire section of their website dedicated to Fall Foliage, including a map of where and when to find peak color. View it here before you plan a ride.
