Boston's leafy outskirts are lovely in the fall—stunning with crimson and golden colours in particular. Local tour operators offer guided fall foliage tours to Cape Cod, the Maine coast, and New Hampshire villages, but you might also discover fairy parks and forests on your own provided that you know where to go. Some hotspots include the Public Garden, Esplanade Park al​ong the Charles River, the Rose Kennedy Greenway, the Back Bay, Emerald Necklace parks, and finally Mount Auburn Cemetery boasting some 5,000 trees. The fall foliage display starts in early September and continues into early November—but October is the best.
