As autumn arrives, admire the fiery red, orange and yellow flames of fall foliage on your scenic road trip from Beantown Boston to the rocky Atlantic headlands of Maine.
Journey past lighthouses, fisheries and seaside dwellings that have sheltered everyone from local lobstermen to holidaying presidents. Admire the magnificent view over the Schoodic Peninsula, pink granite cliffs and ancient maple forests – their leaves glowing fiery red, burnt orange and mustard yellow in the crisp autumn air. Travel along “The Kanc”, an American Scenic Byway that cuts through the White Mountain National Forest and provides exquisite views of the White Mountains, Rocky Gorge and several waterfalls. Discover Boston, Portsmouth and Pittsfield.
