Best Last Minute Fall Foliage 2017 Cruises
Fall in the Northeast is a spectacular showcase of autumn hues of gold, orange, red and purple. It is also prime time for “leaf-pepping” or taking in the fall foliage. While some choose to experience this color explosion by car or train, fall foliage 2017 cruises are the best way to witness this change in scenery and visit popular ports of call.
One of the most beloved seasons of the year, fall is perfect for anyone who loves a slight chill in the air, some outdoor hiking, and enjoying a warm tea while gazing at the colorful foliage. New England just happens to be one of the top spots to see these color changes and numerous cruise lines sail through this area to offer leaf peeping expeditions to their guests.
If you are ready to book a 2017 fall foliage cruise to try your hand a leaf peeping, there are some things to keep in mind before you embark:
- Pick prime time – Did you know September and October are some of the best months to enjoy the change in color that occurs in fall? Many cruise lines will venture off to places like Boston, New York, Montreal and Quebec to enjoy all the glory of autumn. You can enjoy search online for a fall foliage prediction map that will help you discover the best times to sail.
- Bring clothing appropriate for layering – Depending on your ports of call, there may be a chill in the air. Plus, the Northeast is known for getting substantial temperature drops between afternoon and evening – sometimes as much as 20 to 30 degrees. Dress in layers and remember to bring a pair of close-toed shoes.
- Enjoy whale watching – Did you know the Northern Atlantic is full of humpback whales that usually stay in the area through October? Book a fall foliage 2017 New England cruise and enjoy some whale watching in addition to the change in colors.
