East coast fall foliage tours have a very short season.
By the time November rolls around, most of the vibrant leaves have drifted to the ground, and more winter weather conditions set in.
Typically the most popular months for Fall foliage are September through October. The weather is still nice, with late October welcoming light dustings of snow and frost – great for photographs!
This is technically the off season for tourism, so you can enjoy off-peak prices. The downside is that some towns and attractions will be shut down because the peak tourism season is over.
I can’t think of a better way to see the fall colors than a short 5 to 7 day cruise. These cruises usually depart from New York City and Boston from as little as $306 USD ($44.00 per person per night).
Each cruise itinerary is slightly different, but they usually travel north along the East coast, stopping in Nova Scotia, then heading East along the St. Lawrence River. Click here to pick the ideal cruise.
