New England is located in the north-east of the United States and combines the states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.
September and October the most popular times to visit as this is the time when the trees change from green to bright oranges and yellows. Drive up into the mountains for spectacular panoramic views or drive along the New England coast to see the vibrant fall foliage colours along the roadsides and against the brilliant blue of the ocean.
