Travel Deals for Vermont’s Fall Foliage
There are few better places in the world to experience the beautiful colors of autumn than New England, and among the six states in the region, Vermont is almost always one of the best places to see fall foliage. This is because Vermont has a high percentage of maple trees, which produce vibrant orange and red leaves during the autumnal season.
This autumn is to be no exception. The forestry department has stated that the summer’s moisture levels and temperatures have primed Vermont’s trees for an amazing display of color.
Over the coming weeks, the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing is suggesting that visitors try to make it to the Green Mountain State midweek to watch its hills go on fire in orange, red and yellow. There are a number of midweek deals on offer at inns and hotels, such as the “Autumn Glow” package at Stoweflake Mountain Resort and Spa, which offers two nights’ accommodation, plus a guided foliage driving tour and samples of maple candy to complete the theme, for $209 per person.
Plenty of foliage-friendly attractions await fall tourists, too. The New England Maple Museum, for instance, is offering midweek visitors a 2-for-1 admission ticket. Similar deals are on offer at Mount Independence State Historic Site and the Calvin Coolidge Historic Site, both of which are located in secluded areas that will no doubt be rife with fall color!
The suggested time to see Vermont’s foliage in its peak color is in mid-October, and some locals are reporting that leaves have already started changing in some areas.
