About this trip

It was in these picture-perfect maple and cedar forests of New England that pilgrims, and later revolutionaries, sought sanctuary. And as autumn arrives, you too can admire the fiery red, orange and yellow flames of fall foliage on a scenic journey from Boston to the rocky Atlantic headlands of Maine.
