Fall Foliage Videos Showcasing New England

Video ImageThere are many videos uploaded to YouTube that attempt to capture the essence of the color of the season here.

Some have great photos but set to music that is not complimentary to the subject and becomes distracting. Others have wonderful music set to photos captured on a early cell phone model. In effect the quality runs the gamut.

But here are six videos that in my view showcase this best of New England seasons.

Unfortunately, I didn’t find one I could pick for New Hampshire, but if you know of one we can use without running afoul of copyright please let us know in the comments and we’ll add it. Otherwise enjoy this selection and come back often to remind yourself when the snows are on the ground or you begin to plan your next fall foliage trip to New England.

Fall Foliage (Autumn Travel) – Litchfield Hills, Connecticut:

Connecticut is the southern terminus for fall in New England but that doesn’t mean the colors are all spent by the time it reaches the nutmeg state. The state has many forest and parks and hiking trails offering scenic colorful views.

The Litchfield Hills is especially stunning during late October.

This video captures the views and the narrator offers some destinations and activities to try including wine vineyards and cheese producers, and a covered bridge.



Fall in Maine:

Put together by Visit Maine this video on the largest of New England states captures the foliage season in the the highlands and coastline of Acadia National Park and coastal communities.



Foliage – Western Massachusetts:

This is a long video by YouTube standards but there are some outstanding scenes and the music is easy listening. The scenes focus on fall foliage in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, which frankly, in my humble view, is second only to Vermont for color.



Vermont Fall Foliage:

From the Lake Champlain Chamber this video showcases Vermont fall colors and rural farming landscapes.



New England Fall Foliage:

The pictures in this video are synchronized with Cheryl Wheeler’s song “when fall comes to New England” a much overused song for fall videos but in this case well put together.



New England Fall Foliage Scenes:

The video we put together a few years ago to promote fall in New England – my pet peeve with many of the fall videos is they don’t put the place names in them so when you see a gorgeous scene you have no idea where it is so you can visit. We added the destination names to our scenes.
