Fall for Boston

Bring on Fall

Cooler and crisper temperatures means more energy to enjoy the many things to do, see and experience in Boston! The city’s autumnal flair will create colorful and memorable moments. 

Fall Highlights

Foliage

Boston is at its most beautiful in the fall. As the leaves turn, Boston's parks put on an unforgettable show, complementing the historic architecture.

A walk along the city's Freedom Trail now doubles as a foliage tour. It's a great time to visit Boston's Faneuil Hall Marketplace, as the crowds thin out, but the weather is still pleasant. On a cooler day, take a stroll through the gorgeous indoor courtyard of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

Explore the Outdoors

Get outside in Boston, one of America’s great walking cities where the historic port, beautiful waterways, elaborate bike paths and networks of urban green space invite you to have fun outdoors.  

Take the quick ferry ride out to the Boston Harbor Islands or run and bike along the Charles River Esplanade or stroll along the Boston HarborWalk to take in views of Boston Harbor and the diverse neighborhoods that border the sea.

Explore the great outdoors and enjoying recreational activities throughout the city in places like the Rose Kennedy Greenway, Lawn on D, Arnold Arboretum, and the parkways of the Emerald Necklace.

No other region of the country displays fall's colors like New England. A trip north of Boston to Kittery, Maine, will make for a dazzling show-and provide plenty of great shopping opportunities at the Kittery Outlets. Head south by car or rail to see Plimoth Plantation, and a replica ship, Mayflower II, based on the vessel that brought the Pilgrims to the New World in 1620. Look west to visit to Lexington and Concord, charming colonial towns with rich literary and Revolutionary War Era history. Read our Beyond Boston blog.

Fall Weather

 Monthly Avg  High Avg Low Avg   Precipitation
 September  73°  57°  3.5"
 October  62°  46°  3.8"
 November  58°  38°  4"

Temperatures are Fahrenheit

What to Wear:
Bostonians dress smartly and simply. It can be unpredictably hot in early fall and quite cold late in the season. Be prepared for anything.

Day: If you're touring, wear comfy sneakers or sandals for walking. A light to heavy jacket is a good idea later in the season. Most tourist venues don't have dress codes, but check to be sure.

Evening: Consider your agenda; the theater tends to be dressier and some upscale restaurants require jackets. Nights are generally cool to cold.
