New England meaning just Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine because upper New England is different from lower New England.

MA, CT and RI peak with NJ and PA.

Just like Colorado does a very good job of marketing it's ski industry. To many the only place to ski is in CO but there are other options available throughout the US

And yes, we do have some fall foliage here in the mountains. It's different but still very beautiful.

I wish we had fall foliage like that here in Texas without having to drive to specific areas of the state.

People around here do not assume that at all. Plenty of Fall foliage to be seen here and some of the grandest views just a short drive away in the mountains. It's very common for folks to day trip up to the Blue Ridge Parkway to see the colors. Even the local Mets have peak fall foliage maps for that specific reason.

No fall color in NC except for high elevations. NC is way too warm and tropical for fall color.

Texas is too warm for those types of colors, and alot of it is too arid for those types of trees.

Why do make such an all encompassing statement- as if your opinion were fact?

Simple answer to the original question: Marketing.

New England states have put a ton of effort into pushing autumn scenery as part of their tourism lure.

It's not opinion, it is fact. NC is a subtropical state.
