Here are 21 of the best trips to see fall foliage in New England and New York from Montreal.\nThe regions immediately across the border abound with quaint, underrated villages — all of them great spots to leaf peep.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nIt may come as a surprise but Quebec doesn't have a monopoly on the most amazing places to see fall foliage. Our friends south of the border also have some of the most beautiful spots in the world to visit during the autumn.\nMaybe you feel you've been everywhere you can in Quebec or just want to experience something new by way of the U.S., either way, these 21 places will have you setting up your playlist, jumping in the car, and heading south for a road trip.\nThe timing doesn't get better than now to plan your weekend away. Most of the foliage is already at its peak, or just about to hit it, throughout the Northeast United States. Just in case you want to double-check when it will hit its most beautiful reds and yellow, you can check out the foliage trackers we included for each state.\nIt was difficult to narrow the list down. Some of these spots are so picture-perfect (like the blueberry barrens), the photos actually look like paintings. But whether you want to drive, hike, grab a train, we've got you covered.\nKeep reading to find out the 21 best U.S road trips from Montreal to see the last of this year's fall foliage.\nVERMONT\nFoliage Tracker\nStowe, VT\nView this post on Instagram Chasing the fall foliage here in Vermont🍁 The colors really are spectacular!!
