Ronie Strout — The best foliage would be in Aroostook County this coming weekend of Oct. 6-8. One place on Route 11 you have a 360 view of the area, a beautiful view any time of the year. Hope you all get a chance to see it.

Diana Ingraham — At the top of Ekonk Hill Road, Route 49 headed north in Eastern Connecticut, if you look to the East there are open fields and a miles-view of foliage that can’t be beat! Continue North for just a few miles and take a left onto Route 14A. Simply gorgeous views as you follow the road downhill to Route 12. Enjoy!

Rita Krajewski — I have found the fall colors just spectacular in the Berkshires of Western MA. I had a home on Ashmere Lake in Hinsdale, MA, and loved sitting on the deck and watching the changing scenery. Love to drive Rt. 7 N for the colors.

Jim Beam — I agree with Tim Butkus. The Manchester area in southern Vermont is great for checking out the leaves. I’ll be driving that way soon.

Bonnie Wiggins — I’ve never seen anything as spectacular as the drive from Newport, RI to the Cape. It was 2004 and I still haven’t caught my breath!

Mary Fahey — The Monadnock area is great. Our favorite is the town of Peterborough, NH.

Mimi Steadman — The fall color in the mountains can be beautiful, but for truly spectacular autumn scenery, there’s nothing like combining rainbow foliage with an ocean view — such as at Pemaquid Point or Ocean Point, both in midcoast Maine.

Linda Chase — Without a doubt, Sunset Lake, Greenfield, NH. Second choice? Crotched Mountain-Blueberry Hill area.

Tim Butkus — I go to southern Vermont between Bennington and Manchester. Always a good spot to see the leaves and to enjoy the small towns along Route 7. Enjoy.

Jennifer Berg-Gill — In Mount Monadnock region, especially my hometown of Fitzwilliam. There is nothing more beautiful than Laurel Lake in the autumn!
