It's official, autumn is here. Great news for those of us who love snuggling up in big knits and boots but a shame for those who prefer a hotter climate. The autumn equinox on September 22nd brought with it an end to the sunny days of summer in the UK and the start of blustery winds and rain. Some of us would certainly confess to guiltily turning on the heating in the past couple of weeks. We've decided to embrace all the glory that fall has to offer and take a whistle stop tour of Boston famed for its picture postcard views packed with the wonderful colours of autumn.

Boston, in New England, USA, is home to a population of over six hundred thousand permanent residents and this place loves the autumn so much that there are festivals dedicated to it. The New England region is famed the world over for its fabulous autumn foliage and makes a perfect location for a fly drive trip.

Boston itself is the location of a number of enormously important historical events in the United States. The American Revolution began here and the city was the site of the Boston Massacre as well as the Boston Tea Party. This history is revered and celebrated throughout the region. The city showcases a mixture of sleek, modern sky rises and classic Federal style buildings. You can explore the Boston Tea Party Ships and museum in the harbour, Boston Common, the oldest public park in the U.S., Franklin Park Zoo, the Boston Children's Museum and the New England Aquarium to name but a few of the attractions this city has to offer. It's little wonder that the city is one of the top ten tourist locations in the United States.

Outside the confines and bustle of the city, you can tour New England and its simply stunning routes as you see the kaleidoscope of autumnal colours. The Mohawk Trail in Western Massachusetts was the first official 'scenic road' in America and takes in a number of parks and forests for walking and cycling tours. It also offers some of the best foliage views at the top of Mount Greylock. 

Getting there is straightforward with Logan International Airport servicing the city and surrounding areas and there are also three intercity rail stations for those travelling from other regions in the U.S. Within the city, driving can be difficult due to congestion so using public transport such as the subway or the water shuttle service is recommended. 

However you choose to travel, Boston and New England offer the perfect antidote to the autumn blues, so wrap up and take a trip there.
