I am coming to Boston in October and wondered if anyone could give me a starting point for interesting things or places to shoot. Looking to go up the coast a bit for leaves, anywhere specific for great shoots...

If you like history, walk the "Freedom Trail" in Boston. It takes you past most of the historic sites in the city. Here's the website: http://www.thefreedomt​rail.org/ (external link)

The Boston Common and Public Gardens are nice to walk around. You can get some good people shots and there are statues, flowers, etc. Something for everyone. Definately spend some time at Fanieul Hall and Quincy Market (they're on the Freedom Trail).

Have a great trip!

Salem, MA is just a little north of boston, and youre just stepping into its prime time.

(Witches, witch trials, etc)

Plymouth has some photo ops.

Fall River used to have a battleship, dont know if it still does...


I am willing to both buy and sell prints to other photographers on this forum, for their personal collections only. Price pursuant to my cost of printing.

If you are interested in warships, the Constitution is berthed in Boston (or Quincy).

Here's a website for Battleship Cove in Fall River.

http://www.battleshipc​ove.org/ (external link)

The Maine coast offers plenty of opportunities for seascapes, given that it comprises some 5,000 miles of coastline.

You'll have to travel inland to view the most spectacular of our famous riot of fall foliage colors.

If it's history that interests you, the Freedom Trail in Boston (as mentioned above) is a possibility. If you travel west, and have an interest in military small arms, the Springfield Armory Museum is definitely worth the trip.

Thank you for the great suggestions, what path do I take to see and photograph some incredible fall leaf scenes.

Here's a Vermont site. Select the Foliage Forecaster button to get an approximation of peak color times.

You can drive west on the Mass. Turnpike out to the Berkshire Mountains. Or, you could drive north from Boston into New Hampshire. Or southern and central Vermont.

Remember to bring warm clothing. October days can be pleasantly warm, at least by New England standards, but nights bring frost.

Here are sites for Maine and New Hampshire. If you fill in your name and address at the three sites, they'll send you road maps and tour books that should provide ideas for a fall foliage trips.

I can't suggest routes, since I've never gone on a foliage tour. There's plenty of color where I live in Massachusetts.
There should also be a website for my state similar to those above.

Bon voyage.

More sites dedicated to foliage charting.
