No question about it, fall along the country's northeastern ridge is exquisite. Massachusetts sees an influx of tourism during this time, largely due to fall foliage, the closing baseball season at Fenway Park, and trips to Martha's Vineyard and Cape Cod.
Boston is the hub of activity and tourism in the state. The Red Sox are a major draw, as is the New England Aquarium with its 20,000 animals and 75,000-square-feet of explorable fun. Visit the historic Boston National Historic Park, and be sure to mix in a tour of the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum. Kids always enjoy a visit to the Museum of Science-Boston.
