hile we always hope that summer will stick around a little longer, there are great pleasures in the fall—especially in New England. The colors. The tastes. And we have some particularly good secrets to help you appreciate it all, including a meal that tastes like autumn on a plate. Chai tea made with apple cider. Some great places to hike through brilliant foliage, in some of the last places you’d expect to find them. Or, if you still just can’t let go of summer, where to find some apple pie ice cream. Here are eight great secrets of the fall:


Where to see the leaves turn, up close


A breakfast dish that’s like autumn on a plate


Apple cider-pressing at Boston’s last working farm


An apple and berry orchard in a public park, where you’d least expect to find it


Where to find apple pie ice cream, with cinnamon and chunks of fresh apple mixed right in


A pumpkin specialty with an exotic twist


Take a hike through great foliage—right in the middle of civilization


See the foliage from a bike.


A perfect accompaniment to foliage season
