Peak foliage has just about arrived in many towns around Massachusetts, making this weekend one of the best times this year for leaf peeping.
So, as a part of our continuing series to help keep you informed on Massachusetts’ vibrant colors, we asked our fans on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for how the foliage looked in their neck of the woods this week.
For an idea of where you can find the top autumn scenery, take a spin through the comments in the Facebook post below!
Our followers on Twitter also chimed in:
@VisitMA I'd say right near peak here in the northwest side of Worcester. Some trees have lost leaves most are in full color. Few green
