There are so many things to love about autumn in New Engalndt. The crisp, cool air, scarf season, all things pumpkin and apple. To show just how long the list of amazing fall-factors goes, we decided to highlight our top seven:

The Foliage

Anywhere you turn during autumn, you’re guaranteed to see vibrant hues of red, yellow, orange, and multicolored leaves. No place puts on the fall foliage show quite like New England—whether you’re in the parks of Boston, mountains of New Hampshire, the hills of Massachusetts or on the shores of Rhode Island.

Pumpkin Flavored Everything

America’s favorite holiday flavor is already back in in restaurants and cafes. In most coffee shops or bakeries, there’s a warm pumpkin latte or a pumpkin muffin to be found, the spicy sweetness keeping us cozy as the summer fades into the coolness of autumn.

The Weather

Fall is New England’s sweet spot. While the summers can get pretty humid and the winters bitingly cold, autumn brings cool breezes without being too frigid, so you can still enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, apple picking, kayaking and more.


There’s no better way to experience the glorious fall colors than by spending an afternoon all around them. You can explore the many outdoor parks in the greater Boston area while staying with The Boxer.

Apple Cider Donuts

These spongy, melt-in-your-mouth seasonal treats are a New England classic. Local farms and orchards often make them fresh every morning. You can find these delicious treats at Russell Orchards, Boston Public Market and many other spots.

Holiday Spirit

With the season comes anticipation of all of the holidays on the horizon—Halloween, Thanksgiving and even Christmas. There are endless activities to do in celebration of each of these days, and tons of fun shopping to do for them too!


New England is home to some of the best teams in the sports world—the Boston Red Sox, Bruins, and Celtics. Fall is a great time to enjoy Fenway before the winter comes and get those hockey/basketball tickets for the TD Garden in November.
