Fly into Providence, RI (usually less expensive and an easier drive than Boston). Then head up the coast to Acadia NP, ME. Don't miss Google GPD to Stephen King's home in Bangor.

From there, plan a leisurely series of stops on the way back to Providence. Then over to Newport and if time, on to Provincetown Then, back to airport and home

I'm surprised that you all took me seriously! Trust me, I I live where the autumn leaves are pretty spectacular myself. I know how it works.

And when I said I'm not comfortable when the temperatures drop below 55, I was definitely thinking of daytime temperatures. I don't care how cold it gets at night. I'll be indoors and curled up in bed. Of course, I will bring along a light coat.

It can be in the summer, but a dry heat definitely is more comfortable that a humid heat. You must have come during the peak of the summer. It's snowing outside right now, and definitely not "wicked hot"!

Many people don't know the science behind the leaves changing colors. Even people who live here.

Wow! Yeah, I can see why you said it was "wicked hot." We get an average of 6 days each summer that are over 100, and you evidently hit one of them.

https://www.visitnh.gov/foliage-tracker I think this is the site I've used before for the foliage tracker although it looks different than when I used it before.

Also, you can go onto google maps and enter "covered bridges" and whichever state you're looking at, and it will show all the covered bridges in the state.
