Fall foliage trip - Day 1

Taketours.com offers great trips with the duration of 1 day to 16 days to cover east coast of US. One such tour is fall foliage covering Vermont State.

Fall season in US starts in september and ends by December. This season marks the transition from summer to winter. This is the excellent time to see all maple trees change their color from green to bright orange, red and purple hues. Fall foliage trip is a 2 day tour targeting to cover one place in New England region. New England region covers New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut.

Our tour started from New York, taking us to White face mountain. Scenic Gondola ride which costs $19 is an excellent attraction. Total ride takes around 45 mins to reach to the peak of the white face mountain and return.

Welcome Halloween

 It’s fantastic to see all trees with bright orange and red colors from the top view. The peak of the mountain is foggy and too cool. We can have an excellent view of Lake Placid from there. We couldn't stay at the top of the mountain for more time due to freezing cold weather. Gondola ride gives you a life time memorable experience.

Our next stop is Lake Placid. As the name suggests, it is very peaceful. Lake Placid is a village in Adirondack mountains in New york state. It comes under tri-lake region with near by lakes like Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake. Lake Placid is best known as a place which hosted winter olympics in1932 and 1980. The street along the side of the lake, is a good place for lovers of shopping.

After this, we reached the hotel in Plattsburg by 8PM itself. First day of tour ended. 

Wait for the second day updates :)

Until next time,
