You already know New England is gorgeous in November, when the leaves turn golden and the air smells like Fall. What you may not know is that the stretch between that and the first snow can be the best time to go—no crowds, eerily beautiful bare-branch landscapes, and bargain prices on the cutest little inns you’ll ever see.
Pick your quaint town (we like Exeter, New Hampshire, an easy drive from Boston, and as picturesque as they come), book your flight and get packing. If you’re a city girl, you’ll want to channel preppy so you look the part on arrival—which is why this is what we’d wear on the plane if we were lucky enough to go with you.
