And Why Fall Is Such A Beloved Season In New England
I’m definitely biased when it comes to loving Fall. I grew up in New Hampshire, went to school in Boston and work in Vermont now. I bleed New England Yankee and wouldn’t have it any other way. That includes having a special place in my heart for all four seasons. But, not so secretly my favorite is Fall.

Pumpkin spice season is upon us! Soon it’ll be time to break out the thick sweaters, jackets and boots here in Vermont. As a native New Englander, Fall is definitely my favorite time of the year. I get to plan apple picking trips, bake lots of pie, run through piles of leaves with my black lab Charlie and watch the foliage change on my ride into work.
We're celebrating Fall with a Shaker style furniture sale that lasts for a few more days (till next Tuesday, Oct 2). Stop by to shop or just check out the colorful maple trees at the water's edge.
Autumn has arrived in Vernon, Vermont and I had to snap this photo today as I was leaving the showroom at Vermont Woods Studios. It feels great to see water back in our pond at George's Mill after the summer's drought left it pretty well empty for several weeks.

This is the time of year when our Green
begins to transform into a world full of red, orange, and yellow hues. The
brilliant colors of autumn attract leaf peepers from across the world, and it’s
easy to see why. Vermont is the
best place to see fall foliage in New England, and
arguably the United States.
With nearly 80% of our state being forested, the opportunities to see the
dramatic hues are limitless.
Additionally, Vermont has
the highest number of maple trees in New England, which
produce the ultimate red leaves during the fall season.
This year the Vermont Department of Tourism & Marketing
will be producing a Foliage Report that will be issued weekly. Starting
September 18, the Foliage Report will provide a map of the finest driving
routes, an audio update and trail recommendations. In addition to visiting the website, leaf peepers can stay up-to-date on Vermont’s foliage progression by calling 1-800-VERMONT.
When is peak fall foliage in Vermont?
The trees outside our offices at Vermont Woods Studios have already begun to change, but looking at the foliage Forecaster, it appears that Columbus Day weekend will be the best time to see the
dramatic colors cover Vermont.
This is a perfect opportunity to spend a weekend in Vermont
to breathe in the cool, crisp air of autumn, enjoy the outdoors, and listen to
leaves crunch below your feet.
