Leaf peeping with Costsaver tours
By Patti Pietschmann Travel Diva
When you live in areas such as Los Angeles, as I do, you rarely get to see the changing leaves of fall. This is why many of us head off to cooler climes where we can get our fix of Mother Nature’s art work.
If you’re among the leaf peepers of the world you might want to consider this nine-day New England tour we just discovered by Costsaver.
The trip starts in historic Boston where you’ll visit old Cape Cod, bubbly Burlington and sea swept Maine set under a blanket of vibrant fall foliage.
- On the first day you arrive in Boston.
- Day 2 takes you to Boston – Plymouth – Hyannis (2 nights)—set out on the Freedom trail.
- Next stop is Cape Cod and Provincetown Excursion—a trip to the seashore.
- On the fourth day you arrive in Pittsfield.
- Then on the fifth days it’s Pittsfield – where you spend two nights in a hotel in Burlington to rest up.
- Day 6 brings Burlington–feel free to roam around the area.
- Then it’s Burlington – North Conway -discover this quintessential New England town full of historic buildings, quaint antique shops, bookstores and bakeries. You’ll have two nights to soak it all in.
- DAY 8– North Conway Sightseeing and free time.
- Ninth day– North Conway – Portsmouth— see the city that sits near the mouth of the Piscataqua River, a short, wide river that divides New Hampshire and Maine.

While on the East Coast you might want to make time to explore one of the prettiest places to catch the colors of fall is the Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania. We’re talking the most explosive fall foliage productions on the planet.
The Poconos span 2,400 square miles and include Monroe, Pike and Wayne counties. The topography unfolds with breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls, thriving woodlands and 170 miles of winding rivers.
Active types can hike or bike 261 miles of leave-falling trails. There are also more than 35 golf courses, whitewater rafting, boating and fishing.
