Summer getaways are nice and all, but fall travel in New England is forever where it’s at. And don’t people even know it: Despite these slightly cooler months, traffic, crowds, and high hotel rates endure. Which is why we prefer to go small -- small-town, that is. Our state is teeming with teeny spots that manage to dodge (some of) the leaf-peeping masses yet still offer architectural charms, fine dining, water views, and, of course, plenty of that picturesque foliage.
