Whether you live in or around the city of Boston, Massachusetts, its old world charm sprinkled in the warm colors of fall is something not to be missed. The above chart is the attempt to predict when autumn’s peak color will happen in Boston, Massachusetts, based on the passed years’ reports from foliagenetwork.com. The gray columns are the 2016 weekends so you can plan ahead; this is particularly helpful for travelers looking to book a hotel in advance. Leaf drop is not included on the chart because if storms do come the leaves will still change around the same time. See my home page for other cities.
Last year, I was attending a wedding in the Boston area and I was curious if the wedding would be a beautiful fall affair. This year that same couple is having a baby shower/ Jack and Jill party in mid-October and I’m curious again to see if my commute will a colorful one.
See the above chart for the 2016 predictions for Boston fall foliage. The best times to see autumn’s peak colors in the Boston area will be October 23 – November 2, 2016.
