We are flying to Boston on Oct 18th night and depart on Oct-22nd. We have booked stay in Lichtfield Inn for Oct 21st. We want to see Fall Foilage and do some moderate treks in the CT area.
We are 2 adults (ages 47/42) and 2 kids (age 10/12) and live in Dallas where we don't get much of a beautiful and picturesque outdoor scene.
I' d like to know if this is a late time to see good colors and some recommendations as to where else to go and stay. Lichtfield Inn only had a room for Sunday night and we will drive back to Boston on Monday morinng for our late afternoon flight.
So that leaves us wondering what to do for Friday evening and all day Saturday. Our first morning on Friday we thought we'd take in Boston in a small way maybe visiting Harvard campus. Worth seeing? And then start a drive to somewhere in CT but just not sure what to do/where exactly to go.
We are looking for places to stay Friday and Saturday night that makes sense for the driving route we should be taking to and from Lichtfield..
Thanks for any suggestions.
We have never visited this part of the country and looking forward to it.
