3day excursion from nyc at the end of october

Hi

We will be visiting NYC on the last week of October, and an squeez in 3 days/nights just before. We thought to visit the new England part closest to NYC and hopefully enjoy some foliage.

Does it make sense?

Can anyone recommend a place to stay and places to visit, close enough to NYC , where we can enjoy the foliage?

To me it would be more worthwhile to go upstate N.Y. via the Hudson River Area and Rt. 84 ....cross over to Litchfield County in Connecticut. The leaf view would be at the same point in New York and that area of Connecticut.

To cross into Connecticut from New York in the Southwest area near the coast will not have the same depth of color or number of trees near the shore.

Litchfield County would be your best bet... leaves, plus a number of things to do that would easily consume 3 days. Do you want to stay in a hotel or B&B? What is your budget? For luxury, there is the Mayflower Inn in Washington and Winvian in Morris. Just remember that foliage is weather dependent... Last year we had a tropical storm in August and then a freak snowstorm in October that had a dramatic impact on foliage.

Thanks.

We would like to pay about $150-200 per night, if that is enough to allow us a nice room. We are not yet familiar with prices. We would like a place with character, if possible.

We do not plan on spending a lot of time in the accommodation place, more like traveling with the car during the day and coming back during the evening.

Would appreciate suggestions for initery and places to visit.
