Fall in Massachusetts

You won’t want to miss the glorious fall foliage in Massachusetts. From the iconic scenery of the Berkshires to the charming small towns you’ll find across the state, there is plenty to do and see this autumn.

The season starts in mid-to-late September, and peak color often coincides with Columbus Day weekend. In 2023, leaves will start to change at the end of September and we’ll see peak foliage in much of Massachusetts during the first week of October – but you should be able to see pretty colors throughout the state until Halloween.
