Travel Tuesday: Boston Fall Foliage

By Doris Domingo


I am not from Boston, but I have often heard from locals that autumn is the BEST season of the year!

If you come from a warm part of the world like me, at first sight you might ask yourself what is the big deal about it as temperature is dropping, summer clothes are replaced by coats and rain boots and days are getting shorter…

But then you look up and realize all the amazing colors around you. A color palette full of vibrant yellows, reds, browns and oranges.

It’s time to discover the beauty of New England! Step out of the city and immerse in the countryside to delight yourself with these breathtaking landscapes. You can enjoy the beauty of fall foliage in towns like Lexington and Concord; in neighbor states such as New Hampshire and Vermont; and even at the coast! If you feel nostalgic about the summer and you want to enjoy some last days by the sea, go to Cape Cod for a gorgeous contrast of gold fall foliage colors and the blue water.

You don’t have a car, nor the time to plan a trip outside Boston… Don’t worry! Fall foliage is all over the city! You can go to Cambridge, Beacon Hill or the Charles River Esplanade for a relaxing and spectacular walk.
