fall foliage splendor

Join NYC USk in experiencing the splendor of the New England Fall foliage.

Of all the places on earth, fall in New England may be one of the prettiest. The region was made for the autumn season, and every fall activity you could dream of can be found here, with a backdrop of brilliant foliage and quaint little towns.

Autumn in New England is legendary for its vibrant colors and picturesque beauty. The autumn color of the trees and flora in New England has been reported to be some of the most brilliant natural color in the United States; Attracting visitors from across North America and overseas. Leaf peepers flock to Vermont , New Hampshire, Maine and parts of Massachusetts to see the sugar maples, ash, birch, beech, dogwood, tulip tree, oak and sassafras trees that contribute to the kaleidoscope of autumn color.

The combination of the natural rugged landscape and quaint little towns have made several areas in New England iconic locations for sketchers and painters. The numerous barns, churches, farm houses, and quaint villages combined with the vibrant seasonal colors makes for the perfect setting to draw, sketch or paint the vibrant New England country side.

Traveling through New England in search of autumn’s changing colors has become so popular it has sprouted its own subculture of “leaf-peepers”. Let’s Immerse ourselves in the fall harvest spirit with the ultimate Virtual New York City Urban Sketchers online road trip.
