What’s fun this fall in New England? Yankee Magazine is recommending train rides, festivals and a variety of destinations in its September-October issue.
Fall foliage trains include Maine’s Belfast and Moosehead Lake Railroad, Hoosac Valley train rides out of North Adams, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire’s Conway Scenic Railroad and Mount Washington Cog Railway. Events range from Rhode Island’s Pawtucket Arts Festival to Maine’s Fryeburg Fair and the Big E in Massachusetts.
Other destinations include Vermont’s Dog Chapel, Falls of Lana and Mount Ascutney, along with Salem, Massachusetts, known for the 17th century witch trials and today home to all manner of museums and witchy kitsch.
