We spent some time sifting through our data, to see where our customers were frequenting, a few of our office favorites, and we've chosen the Top 6 spots for this fall.

#6: Boothbay Harbor, Maine

Boothbay Harbor

One of the most beautiful spots in Maine, situated right on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, Boothbay Harbor offers year-round events and activities suited for all ages. Whether it's the stunning panoramas of the transforming foliage or catching the magnificent humpback whale breach, there is no shortage of incredible sights. A mix of luxury hotels, campgrounds, and historic inns provide a wide variety of lodging accommodations. Our favorite place to stay is the Spruce Point Inn Resort and Spa.

This 50 square-mile island encapsulates the charm of the deep history of Massachusetts. Bundle up for an autumn walk on one of the plentiful beaches, past the rolling dunes, all the way down to the Brant Point Lighthouse.
